Wedding or Mothers Day Card

We made this card in class this month.  This first card I folded a little piece of lace ribbon & added it with a small flower.  It makes a nice wedding card.

This card was just colored for mothers day.
To make the dress I used a post it note over the bottom of the stamp.  With the paper covering the lower part of the stamp I inked it-took the paper off & stamped it.  Then just draw the lines for the long dress with a black marker.

This is a tissue holder.  This is what the stamp actually looks like.

Remember that the new catalog starts on June 1'st.  If there is anything you want from the old catalog be sure to get it quick!  You only have a couple days!

I you would like a copy of the new catalog mailed to you just let me know!

Dragonfly Card

We made this card in class last month.

The card base is 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 Elegant Eggplant--score in half (4 1/4)
Gold Foil is 5 1/4 x 4--I cut the solid dragonfly out of the middle of this piece.
2 1/2 x 1 1/4 Gold Foil for the greeting.
Perfect Plum 5 x 3 3/4--This piece is scored on the diagonal every inch.  Fold all the lines & sponge with the Elegant Eggplant ink.

The lacy dragonfly is cut out of Gold Glitter paper.  Mount onto the solid gold  with 2 glue dots.  One on the head & one on the body.  
Glue gold & scored layers onto the card front.  Now you can put the dragonfly on the card front with 2 dimensionals.  One under each wing.

The words were embossed using Versa Mark ink & Gold embossing powder.  I used the Paper Piercing Tool in each corner.  This just gives the card a little more "pop".
Mount unto the card front with 4 dimensionals.

The last step is to put a little dot of the Gold Dazzling Details where the lines crossed.

This card I made the same way except I scored it every 1 1/4.  Of course this one is not on the diagonal.  I just wanted to do it a different way & use different colors.   I did not put the gold foil layer on this card.  It was a lot easier & faster to make.   I like them both!

The stamp set is DRAGONFLY DREAMS & it has matching framelits!
