Making cards with a different shape is fun and unexpected.
I really like this card a lot. When I showed it to the table of teens who would be making it, I told them they had the hardest card to make . . . the look on their faces was great! Then I pulled this out . . . and the reaction was all I could have wanted! They oooh and aaaahed over the glittery leaf and seemed anxious to begin cranking out all those shapes with the Big Shot.
They worked in an assembly-line style and were finished in no time!! This card is so much easier than it looks - thanks to die cuts and framelits.
what I used:
card stock - Early Espresso, Cajun Craze, Very Vanilla; Designer Series Pattern Paper Pack in Rich Regals (More Mustard used here), Natural Composition Specialty paper; Champagne Glitter paper; Floral Frames Framelits; Autumn Accents Bigz Die; Big hot; Stamp sets - Daydream Medallion and Perfectly Penned; Ink - Early Espresso; SNAIL adhesive.
Here are a few of the kiddos showing off their creations. See how much fun they're having? This was a table with only one gal and five guys. And you know what? They did a great job - the cards will make a lot of folks happy! They made 10 cards total at this table.
I was happy at work today because I was so super busy. The day always seems to go much faster when you're really busy, doesn't it?
I had Physical Therapy first thing in the morning (7 a.m.). At least I don't miss much work with an early appointment like that -- sure does a number on the morning routine, though! I canceled my shoulder surgery that was scheduled for the 15th of November because I want to give physical therapy another try. I really don't want to have surgery!!!!
Hope you're able to make someone happy today.
