BUT for now...I will show you what my card class did in the month of July!
Did you know that CTMH's Wishes card book has several multi-card "workshops" in it? YUP!! It give you a cutting guide and complete instructions on how to cut and assemble multiple cards at one time from a VERY small amount of paper!!
This "workshop" uses just 1 sheet of patterned paper, 1 sheet of colored cs and 1/2 sheet of neutral cs. You can either use a pre-scored card as your base OR you can cut coordinating cs as your background then add it to your pre-scored base.
In case you do not recognize this paper pack, it is the SUPER GROOVY "Surf's Up" paper pack! LOVE the retro colors and patterns in this kit! The stamp set is one of my FAVORITES called "Under the Sea" and it is ONLY $13.95. It has some of the CUTEST sayings...not to mention those fish are ADORABLE!!
This card "workshop" makes 2 each of 8 different cards for a total of 16 cards!! For this set...I chose to use the same stamp set for the 8 different cards. What I LOVE about this workshop is that no matter how many times you use the card LO's, it looks different with each paper, embellishment and stamp set that you choose!!
As I was putting these cards together, I noticed that they looked kind of plain. Of course, NOT the cute little stamped images, but the background cs looked plain. That is when I thought to myself....Self, you have purchased a TON of embossing folders that just sit there BEGGING to be used. SO I went through my nice little stack and found the one with the circles...reminded me of bubbles!
I used CTMH's Round Durable Studs and the Paradise Baker's Twine for my embellishments. Then to accent their fins and water, I used my FAVORITE Liquid Glass with Prisma Glitter!! EVERYTHING looks better with a bit of sparkle on it! Even the hands of those who open up the card, if some of the glitter happens to fall off! lol
This was SUCH a fun card workshop to put together and everyone went home with 16 SUPER CUTE cards to send and hand out to their friends and family!!
Thanks SO much for stopping by!! I hope that this has inspired you to check out the Wishes Card book that CTMH offers. There are SO SO many different LO's and ideas in it that you will NEVER run out of cards to make! LOL
