August Card Class

The August card class is Thursday, August 27th, 5:30pm until 7:30pm.  For $5, you'll make these three cards.  Card class is free if you decide to purchase the featured stamp set, Someone Special, for $13.95 plus tax and shipping.
Class has 10 spaces, please RSVP!
On white rectangle, stamp base layer of flowers in canary, then top layer in honey or goldrush.  Using a mask, stamp leaves in sweet leaf.  Then cut white paper into squares 1 1/2" by 1 1/2",  green rectangle into squares 1 5/8"X 1 5/8".  Mat the white on the sweet leaf squares, then position and tape the matted squares to the hounds tooth paper, popping up one of the squares with foam tape. Dovetail and attach strip on the inside. Adhere to card base, then apply Stickles.

Use scallop punch on the border. Line the bottom of the border up with the long side of the base.  Place a row of tape at the top of the border and close the base.  This will adhere the border to the front of the card, making both sides the same.  Stamp words in Slate, then base blossom in pixie, top layer in sorbet.  Using sponges, distress edges with pixie and sorbet.  Adhere white layer to sorbet paper, then to base.  Apply stickles.

Place butterfly cutout over white rectangle, dot side up.  Use a little tape on the edges to keep the mask from shifting.  Stamp the little blossom (detail layer) over the mask with glacier ink - covering all the white spaces.  Overlapping is fine.  Remove mask, and cut out the largest butterfly, rounding edges to give you a full butterfly.  Stamp the words in the white spaces. Tape stamped layer to glacier paper to card stock. Adhere butterfly with foam tape.  Using liquid glass, put the twine on for antenna.  Dovetail and attach strip on the inside.
