Mothers Class is done for the year.  This is one of the designs we used for yesterday's class--after the wonderful breakfast we had!    First we stamped the flowers branch in white and colored over it with colored pencils.  They all came out different!  This one I did today, using a new die set that came in the mail.  (The cost will be covered by the gift card from the class.)

The other card we did was with the French Foliage set and three shades of green ink, one for each stamp.  The strip on the left was done with double stick Score tape.  After applying it along the edge of the fold, we pulled back the paper covering and added some green mini confetti and two shades of green glitter.  Next we stamped a panel (3 3/4 x 5 1/2") and popped it up on the card front with dimensionals.  Unfortunately, the photo doesn't do the card justice here--the glitter really sparkles and the raised panel adds dimension.

Both cards were easy for the Advanced Class to do and complete quickly (as usual!)  We were all amazed at how many new techniques we learned this year and look forward to even more next year.

Both of these are lovely, Doris! I love the pretty flowers on the first card and the second uses one of my favorite stamp! Love the sparkle! I know those ladies really appreciate all you do for them!

I love kraft paper, and the sweet, colored flowers on kraft are a beautiful look! I wish I could see the full impact of the glitter on the green card - I would think it would feel like a dewy, sparkly, spring morning!
