Tonight's cards!

Here are the cards from tonight's card class.   See you soon!

This is a tri-fold shutter card!  Start with a piece of 5-1/2" x 12" card stock and score the long side at 2", 4", 8", and 10".  Next, rotate your paper 90 degrees.  Along the long edge, measure in 1-1/2".  Using your paper trimmer or a craft knife, cut slits from the 2" score mark to the 10" score mark.   Repeat this cut on the other long side.

I used Play Date Designer Series Paper and the Beautiful Wings Big Shot die to decorate the card.  The stamp set, Happy Greetings, is from the Summer Mini Catalog.

This card features the Inlaid Embossing technique!  Punch out a few shapes and adhere them to your card stock.  Then run it through the Big Shot using the Square Lattice embossing folder.  This results in a gorgeous quilted effect!  The sentiment is from the Simply Said stamp set and the swirl image is from a holiday stamp set called Season of Joy.  (Don't you just love finding ways to use your holiday sets throughout the year?)

The last card features the Level 2 hostess set from the Summer Mini catalog.  I received this set from Stampin' Up! as a gift for my recruiting efforts! 

Here are a few more ideas for using your holiday supplies throughout the year ... the Ornament Punch also doubles as a vase!  Just trim off a bit from the bottom.  And the polka dot paper is from the Jolly Holiday Designer Series Paper collection.

I applied some Champagne Glass Glitter to give this card a little sparkle and shine.
