2018 April Card Class

What happened to our Spring??? At least we’ll be doing cards that will remind us what spring is supposed to look like! We’ll be doing a Mother’s Day card, which can also be a birthday card and we’ll also be using the Waterfront set to make a sympathy card. I’ve added a new tool to my card making room called the Stamparatus. It’s great for lining up images and for doing repeat stamping. We will be giving this a try for the first time in class too.

Oh So Eclectic Birthday

There’s a little stamping on the vellum behind some of the flowers to give them some added depth. This card has a very crisp and clean look and could be used for other occasions by just changing the sentiment.
