Wednesday Card Class ...

Hi Everybody,

Last weeks card class was really good with my two lovely ladies.

I have their permission to blog about it and to show you what they did in the class.

And I stress that these cards are the ladies makes ... not mine ... and aren't they lovely.

These cards are Gatefold but they are held closed  with a shaped belly band around the middle.

Both have a little verse in the centre of the card that they stamped and embossed.

They enjoyed making their cards and they choose the color that they wished to use to make the weeks creation.

We  add in the  flowers   ribbons  and  pearls  as we completed the card ... and we added  in the little bit of glitter to make the whole thing sparkle.

So  far  we have  only used a  punch to get the patterned edges ...  but this week we are going to see how many ways we can use one set of dies.

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx

  3. Very pretty ladies and your colour choices very appropriate.

    I would love to get my flowers looking so pretty on my cards. I tend to keep flowers very simple as I need more direction to get a corsage happening.

    Best wishes, Jan from NSW
