The first uses beautiful Designer Series paper and the lattice die. By cutting the lattice with double sided paper you can easily adhere the quilt outline with one side and fill in the pieces with the other side of the paper. They're set to be coordinated. Oops, I see I lost one little piece. Glad I have some extras to add in that spot.
The vanilla paper is run through the Big Shot with an embossing folder for texture. The same folder was used with the Top Note die. That piece is trimmed to add just one piece along the left side. This is an easy card that looks elegant.
The second card has a unique fold. Below you can see that the card folds in the front with velcro. The floral stamp piece opens to the right. The left panel of patterned paper opens to the left.
The green leaf on the right side is stamped with Wild Wasabi embossing powder and the ribbon is Daffodil Delight. The real beauty of this card is the flowers. They are stamped with white embossing powder on white shimmering paper from Stampin' Up!. The flowers are watercolored with Melon Mambo and Daffodil Delight ink and when they are dry they have some shimmer paper tapped on for a pearlized look.
I think the cards were a hit. They got to learn some new techniques and try some products they may not have seen before. Everyone thought these were going to be complicated cards but I think they saw they were easy once they got to it and followed the steps.
No meeting in July so we'll resume in August. Happy Summer club members.
