Card Class ...

Hi Everybody,

In last Wednesdays Card Class my ladies had a go at Letterpress Technique   using some Spellbinders 3-D folders

The link above  will take you to a tutorial on this technique

The pink one was Brendas' card and her design was created with European Tapestry, Labels Four and Picked Raspberry Distress Inks

This gives a really lace feel to the background and the shade of pink is very vibrant.

Brenda stamped the verse in the same ink and then heat embossed it with clear powder.

Marys card was created with Labels 34 Medallions and the matching Labels 34 dies and for this she used the Evergreen Bough Distress Ink

The verse again was stamped in the colored ink and clear embossed.

Both cards have the addition of flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts   glittered with fine glitter from Glitter Magic

The finishing touch to both cards is to add some Diamanté flourish around the flowers

Once again two lovely happy ladies took home two lovely cards

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx
