Lindsay and John's Anniversary Card

Today is our youngest daughter Lindsay's anniversary. I wanted to make a special card that represented this day for them. This card has very un- traditional colors for an anniversary card. I took the colors from Lindsay's wedding bouquets and added a photo of her bouquet to bring the card together. I really love the look of the tri-fold card.

March Card Class Projects

We had a good time making our cards and sour cream containers. Not everyone sends out Easter cards but we wanted to make at least one. We created this using a very hot card technique the easel card. These seem like they are complicated to make, but actually they are very easy. Of course the more layers you have it can become time consuming. We also used the chocolate bunny stamp. When you use tone on tone with the Chocolate Chip card stock and in it really looks like a chocolate bunny. We added a little dimension by clear heat embossing the bunny.

Sour Cream Container

Our second project for the night the Sour Cream Container. These are so simple, but so fun. We filled them with candy so someone will receive a sweet little treat. These can be really dressed up to use as party favors, wedding favors, Halloween Treats. The list is endless.

Something Sweet

For our last card Amanda created using the Something Sweet stamp set. If you wanted to use a punch to cut out the globe you could insert a sweet treat cup and fill it with real bubble gum balls. How fun would that be!
