Need a card?

I try to hold at least one card workshop per quarter and August was the month for this one! We created the following cards using various paper packets and accessories. The attendees made a total of 10 cards (2 each of 4 standard-size cards and 1 each of 2 more "involved" cards) with envelopes and lots of leftover accessories to KEEP!!!
-------------------------------------------------

6"x6" Popup Card using CTMH's Unforgettable pp and Fancy Cut Botanicals....we left the sentiment area open so they could decide what to put later.




---------------------------------------------------
Tri-Shutter Card (pattern from Split Coast Stampers)...the Cranberry Ink smeared (not common) and I was too lazy to restamp : We used Blue Ribbon pp which most of my attendees hadn't used before and they LOVED it!!!

The card opened...you can sign and put a personal note on the Colonial White cardstock piece in the center.

----------------------------------------------

Magic Moments and Bird Basics standard-size card....a tiny Sparkle is in his/her eye :0) LOVE, LOVE, LOVE both of these items...a truly must-have!

-----------------------------------------------

Tri-fold cards using Perfect Day (another one of my FAVORITES), Fancy Cut Botanicals and Sparkles again...


The flower on this one is what Miss Karen P called a "lollipop flower" and I just had to try it out on my card....


This one uses the Fancy Cut Botanicals and is what the attendees used....

--------------------------------------------------

Pullout Bella Card using Dimensional Element Borders, Botanical Borders stamp set and Buttoned Together stamp set and Hollyhock Ribbon Rounds (Twill). I copied this idea from my dear friend and side-line, Sylvia (not sure if this was an original or if she was inspired by someone).


-------------------------------------------------

And...the CUTEST card ever that I totally copied from Miss Vicki using Tinkerin' pp, Gear Up stamp set, Badge Buttons for his nose (my way of making this card my own) and Pewter Brads....
