Good Evening All
Hope you've all been having a gorgeous day, we've had glorious sunshine which lifts everyone's spirits.
We did two gorgeous cards in class today. I was told that the one using the blossom petal punch looked quite hard to start with and nobody had actually noticed what we were doing with the all a flutter until I pointed it out specifically.
Blossom Petal Punch card was made using the blosson petal punch (obviously) and the vintage wallpaper embossing folder. We did also use two of the stamps from the build a blossom stamp set. After embossing some cherry cobler cardstock, we then ran the same colour ink over the pattern using the brayer, this makes the colour "pop" to give it some depth and dimension. Thereafter we started our punching and creating.
For the all a flutter card it was an Easel with a difference which everyone enjoyed and they did like the effect that was created by cutting out the butterflies, well cutting around their wings to reveal the chocolate chip cardstock below - this is a very pretty effect which gives great dimension, creating a "shadow" effect behind the butterfly.
Take a look and let me know what you think.
