February Card Making Class

I just held my first class yesterday at the Springdale Community Center in Drysdale & it was great! I'm going to be running monthly classes from now on, so you will get to see more of our creations.

These are the mini thank you cards I made for the attendees:


These cards are simple 6x6cm squares made of Smoky Slate cardstock. I use the Bone Folder to score a line in the fold to ensure I get the fold in the middle. I line it up in my Trimmer & then instead of running the blade along the edge, I run the Bone Folder over the cardstock.


The paper is from my stash. The sentiment is from the Another Thank You stamp set & I have used Smoky Slate ink stamped on Very Vanilla cardstock. I have cut them out using the Washi Label Punch.

And here are the lovely cards that the attendees made:


First up, we made cards using the Giggle Greetings stamp set with the It's my Party Designer Series Paper (DSP). The four colours of cardstock & inks used were Crushed Curry, Melon Mambo, Mint Macaron & Sahara Sand, which match the DSP.

The cards are A Frame cut & layered with the DSP & a Whisper White Banner on the front which we cut out using the Banner Dies on the Big Shot. We added some rhinestones to finish them off.



Next up, we did the fridge calendars using the Wildflower Fields DSP which is a FREE product from the Sale-A-Bration catalog when you spend $90 on any current product.

We layered the DSP with metallic green cardstock from my stash (you could use Old Olive or Mossy Meadow cardstock), Basic Black cardstock & the little calendars. Then we stamped all the flowers using the Flower Patch stamp set in Blackberry Bliss, Watermelon Wonder, Calypso Coral, Hello Honey & Daffodil Delight. Blackberry Bliss, Calypso Coral & Hello Honey are matching colours of the DSP & the others are just a shade lighter or darker to use for the centers of the flowers.

We cut the flowers out on the Big Shot using the Flower Fair Dies which you can buy in a bundle with the stamps & save 15%. We have done four layers of the purple flower, fussy cutting the smaller layers out.

We have used little gold brads to attach the flowers to the cards. We also hole punched the centers of the flowers & the cardstock with the 1/16" Circle Punch. You can push the brads through the flowers & the cards, but hole punching keeps it easy & means the flowers & the card don't get all crinkled up.

Finally, we have glued the card shut to hide the backs of the brads & stuck magnets on the back. The girls all opted to do a third card after & have mixed up the stamps & inks to make their own creations :)
