Card Classes

I am teaching Card Design at my local Craft Shop - Scraps'n'Stuff at Richardson and I am looking forward to it.  I thought I would give you a look at the cards I am going to be teaching.

The first is an easel card - I don't know about you, but I love easel cards, they always look fabulous and are so much easier to make than we think - as the ladies are about to find out!

I have used Teresa Collins DP and an image from Basic Grey
, the crown goes perfectly with the DP.  I have used the Spellbinders Grand Calibur to cut out the Labels 16 Nestibilitie, and added the Cuttlebug Vintage Corners.

I went for a totally different look for the second card.  I have used some gorgeous DP and the Stamp from Kaiser.

The bird has been cut out and coloured with Prismacolor Pencils and popped up onto a Classic Oval Nestibilitie that has been embossed with the 'Nat' Embossing Folder from Provocraft.

I have added some flowers and the wonderful braid of leaves, along with some bling from Kaiser and some faux stitching to finish off.

There is still room in the Class for YOU - if you can make it in time! LOL!

These cards are for the following challenges:
Craft Your Passion - Pink - card 1
Karen's Doodles - Animal Friends - card 2
Happily Scrappin - Inspiration Photo - card 1
Aly's Sunday Challenge - Bling Bling - both cards
I DId It Creations - Bling it Up - both cards
One Stitch at a Time - Make It Pretty - card 1
