Make a card Monday

So we had another Monday night class with 7 wonderful ladies, and 2 sweet younger ladies attending…each one making a few beautiful cards. Our first card of the evening was a scraplift that I saw, and modified it a little with files that I already had, and then I had to even change them a tad to make it the way I liked it, using Make the Cut software, (have I said lately how much I love this program)?

So our first card of the evening was entitled “Snail Mail”, a perfect card for those of us who procrastinate and forget to mail that birthday card or if you always send email, how about a card for that special someone, cause we all know a card in the mailbox would be a great pick me up! Enjoy!

Our second card of the evening was supposed to be using a technique called “faux bleaching”. It is a really neat technique, however, I thought when it called for glossy cardstock, I thought the writer meant photo paper. Although embossing on photo paper is really pretty, it didn’t work for what I was trying to accomplish. So we decided to table that card for another week and we did a fall card, still using Tim Holtz reinker dyes. We used the Maple Leaf Cuttlebug die cut/embossing folder, photo paper and reinkers. Sentiments for the cards were picked from a variety of stamps that our dear friend Ruby had brought with her…she is a Close to my Heart demonstrator and she has hundreds of beautiful stamps. So enjoy our cards as each one came out a little different.
