Tuesday Night Card Class - May 10, 2011

Thanks for Being a Friend Card

I love cards that can be put together in under ten minutes!  The beauty in this card comes from the new Flower Garden embossing folder in the Summer Mini catalog.  After embossing, use a white watercolor crayon on the raised areas to make the flowers stand out against darker color card stock.  Simple, yet striking!

Stamps: Happy Greetings (2011 Summer Mini)
Markers: Cherry Cobbler, River Rock
Paper: River Rock, Cherry Cobbler, Very Vanilla
Accessories: White Watercolor Crayon, 3/8" Early Espresso Taffeta Ribbon, Scallop Oval Punch, Stampin' Dimensionals
Big Shot: Flower Garden Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (2011 Summer Mini)

Elements of Style Stair Step Card

Do you recognize this card?  This was one of my most favorite designs from 2010.  I've had several requests to do this card again and I finally gave in to the peer pressure!

Embossed aluminum foil looks fabulous on a card!  Adhere the aluminum foil to a scrap piece of card stock so it will not tear when running it through the Big Shot. 

Use your Paper Snips to cut out the hummingbird - the sharp pointy tips on these scissors make it easier to cut around detailed images.
