Simple Rose card

As you can see in the previous post, my first attempt at making a simple card with my Wild Rose set was not particularly successful, but I was determined, so I went back to the drawing board and came up with this card. It still involves the use of a stamp-a-ma-jig and trimming out the rose image, but cutting out one large image is so much faster and easier than trimming out the 15 different images that were used to make the first card.

The trimmed rose (stamped in groovy guava and really rust inks) was SNAILed to a piece of Afternoon Tea double sided designer series paper which, in turn, was attached to a soft sky mat. I added a piece of the chocolate chip poly twill ribbon for some interest. The base of the card is chocolate chip with a groovy guava mat that was stamped with the solid 5 leaf image from the Wild Rose set in versamark. I inked up just the words "happy Mother's Day" on the stamp from the All Holidays set with chocolate chip marker, leaving off the swirls, and stamped the sentiment in the lower right hand corner of the groovy guava layer. the final step was attaching the layered soft sky piece to the card front.

It's still a pretty card that coordinates with all the other class projects and it's much more class friendly than the rouge rose card that took on a life of its own earlier today. And since I showed you how that card looked next to the gift box that we'll be making in class, I thought I would show you this one as well.

And now for the class details. Depending on the response I receive in the next week, I will either be offering this class on Wednesday, April 30 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. or Saturday, May 3 from 10:00 - noon. The cost will be $20 and will include the card, the box with coordinating tag and tissue, and either the double sided wall hanging or the mini coaster scrapbook. The class will be available by mail in two formats.

The first class by mail format will cost $20 (including shipping) and will include all of the card stock, designer paper and accessories needed to make the projects, but will not include any stamping. Students will need to supply their own adhesive, stamps and ink and will need to stamp, cut out (if necessary) and assemble the projects according to the instructions.

The second by mail format will cost $25 and will include everything mentioned above plus all stamped pieces -- all you will need at home is paper snips/scissors to cut out any pieces that need to be trimmed (like the rose for the card) and adhesive to put the projects together according to the instructions.

Can we opt for both the wall hanging and the mini coaster scrapbook for a little extra?

Can't wait for it in the mail along with all the other class by mail I have ordered plus instructions.


ps: I really don't like the new online catalog format -it is almost like you need to know the exact page you want instead of the old search by name/set/theme option.
