Mothers Class Design


Here's the first card for opening day of the Mothers Class at my church on Monday, the 15th. It's a top fold, with a scalloped edge on the bottom of the top flap. Although they look purplish here, the flowers are a soft pink to match the lighter color in the dp (looks better IRL.)

I plan to teach the class how to cover a slide frame, giving them the choice of which side of the dp to use. The flip side is used for the bottom and background of the white piece with the greeting. Embroidery floss is used around the white cardstock and just tied in a knot. The crystals are Hero Arts--one large for the center of the punched flower and two small as accents on the white.

Although there are several different steps (and skills) involved, this is really easy to do in a class setting. I hope the moms enjoy this one!

What a great idea! I have a lot of those slide frames that I have never used. Your card will be a hit!!
