Love is in the air

Here are the three cards we'll make in the next class. Valentines day will be here before we know it and even if you don't send valentine cards, most of us send the occasional anniversary  or wedding card...right? The top card uses a technique called iris folding which we've done in class before, but this is the first time I've used a heart shape and I think it works well for this simple but elegant card. The pink card is so sparkly and you'll love this quick and easy technique for adding glitter that stays on your card rather than migrating to everything it comes into contact with. We'll definitely be using this on Christmas cards this year. the last card makes use of several punches...aren't those doves just perfect for cards???? They are from a large Christmas border punch, which I managed to resist opening until AFTER Christmas, but I'm sure we'll get lots of use from throughout the year (that's my excuse anyway..lol!) The decorative edge panel was cut from a Kaisercraft pad of pre-scored cards which are so pretty, but I find the card-stock a little lightweight for a card base, unless you weren't going to add any layers or embellish it at all; however it's perfect for adding a layer to your cards as I've done here. 
So there you are...sign up ASAP for either Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursdays class next week to make these cards and if you missed last weeks cards, I still have space tomorrow at 10:30 am or Thursday at 6:30 pm. (Thursday's class will depend on if 2 or more people pre-book so call soon if you are interested)
