Cards Made at Class

Ellen had a card making class last night and it was alot of fun, we had 4 different projects!! My favorite project is the stair step card below. The first is the card closed, as it would come out of the envelope. The second picture is of the card open, there are hidden decorative pieces that can only be seen when it's opened up. This card has endless possibilities and I can't wait to make more.

The second project is the daisy card using the die cuts and layering the different size petals. We used a yellow corduroy button, love those buttons it's a nice way to add texture to a card.

The third project is using the Manhattan Flower Texture Die with blue and peach cs. Use cs weight vellum, put it between the embossing folder, run it through the Big Shot and you get a raised image. Using small scissors cut away the top right side of the vellum where there is no flower. Use Dotto 1/4" to 1/2" from the left side to adhere the vellum to the cs. Cover the Dotto with ribbon. Stamp the sentiment on contrasting cs and cut it out with the scallop punch. Adhere the sentiment to the upper right hand corner.

Notice how different the card looks using the blue versus peach cs.

The fourth project is a Note Card Box which holds the mini cards and envelopes. These note cards measure 2 3/4" by 2 3/4" and come with matching envelopes. I stamped butterflies or ladybugs in red ink on my cards along with a sentiment in black ink and tied black and white checkered ribbon around each note.

Hope you enjoy looking at these projects as much as I enjoyed making them!!
