Card Class 2 Paris/ Shabby Bird

My second class at Scraps'n'Stuff at Richardson is last approaching and I thought I would give you a look at what we are doing that night

My first card is an envelope card (if you know the proper name for this PLEASE let me know)/  I love the elegance of this card, I discovered it at a Stamping Night and my friend and SU Demo's, Ann - we are always guaranteed to learn something new EVERY TIME - and we love that don't we!!

The insert has so many possibilities - I went with the Paris sentiment, although you can use whatever suits the occasion....

The flower is handmade and will be part of the class as well.

My next card is more Shabby Chic - just for a change of pace.

The DP is embossed with the Birds and Swirls Embossing Folder using my Cuttlebug.

This divine bird is from an Inkadinkadoo Stamp set and has been popped up onto a stamped and distressed tag.

The bow is some divine lace and completed with a flower and brad

The final touch is the punched border using the Fiskar Sunburst Border Punch - and of course there is.always sponging, inking and distressing - or it wouldn't be my class!  LOL

I am happy to say that my first class went really well, we had a lot of fun and this time I am hoping to remember my camera and get some photos - the ladies did a fabulous job with their cards.
