September cardmaking class. For this one I embossed the circle and trimmed it. I adhered the stamped decorative paper onto my aqua card, added a little strip of aqua cardstock from top to bottom and then adhered the trimmed circle to the right hand side of the card. I trimmed the heart image (Melonheadz) and used a corner punch on all the corners. I watercoloured the heart to coordinate and then added clear glitter to the dots and in the striped fabric and then sponged the edges with purple ink. I mounted the heart image over the circle using 3D foam tape. I tied the purple ribbon to the greeting and mounted it below the image using 3D foam tape. I did a bit of sponging on the greeting as well to soften the edges so it would blend a little better.

Birthday card from a kit featuring an embossed circle, a watercoloured heart (digital image) and a font greeting
Birthday day card from a kit featuring a resist background, textured border punched strip and a glittered butterfly
my last cardmaking class in January The resist background is silver embossed and watercoloured. I changed up quite a few elements for this one - added a textured strip, replaced the oval with a round and removed the vellum layer. I created the white strip by using the Eyelet punch (SU) on both sides of the strip and then adding embossed lines using my score tool. I really like the look!! I trimmed it to size and glued it over the front of my card. I cut and embossed a circle to replace the oval in the kit. I added a glittered butterfly to replace the white punchie from the kit. I found a greeting in my stash, trimmed it to size using my cutter on both ends and scalloped decorative scissors on the top and bottom. I used a push pin to paper pierced all the scallops and then sponged it with pink ink to help it blend in. I mounted the circle with glue and the butterfly and greeting with 3D foam tape. I added four little clear rhinestones to indicate the butterfly's flight path. Worked out really well! Therese
