Card Class Cards

This month, the theme for the class at The Scrappin' Patch will be Fancy Folds including a tri-shutter card, a pyramid card and a twisted easel card.

We are going to do the twisted easel card because the class last month did not run (it must be too cold for people to come out!!). This, I made from Bazzill basics pale blue for the base card and the dotty Bazzill in a slightly darker shade of blue. The flowers were cut from the Tattered Flowers Alterations die (from Tim Holtz) and the leaf from the Tattered Leaves Alterations die. I embossed these with the Cuttlebug then layered them up and finished off with a diamante bling. The labels were cut using  Spellbinders Nestabilities dies and embossed around the edges.
Before attaching the embellishments to the top part of the card, I embossed double lines along the side and bottom of the top layer, just to give a bit more zing! The embellishments were added to the top layer then that was attached to the front of the card.

The tri-shutter card is a favourite of mine, but I don't make it that often. It is a good card for formal occasions but this time I have made it a less formal card, just to try it out really!! (I like to try things out!!)

I used a white base card and layered it with pale blue card then paper from my stash. The flowers were cut with the cricut and edged with pen. The buttons were glued in the centres to link into the colours of the paper used on the layers.
I used a scalloped oval Nellie Snellen die to cut the white shape on the front then layered that with one of the fancy tags from Spellbinders. The top layer is a label die fromSpellbinders.

The third card for the class is a pyramid card for which I got the idea from one of my many crafting magazines. (I will add it when I find it again!)
The base card is cut from some blue card that I picked up at a stationery store on the West Coast a few weeks ago. I just love the tonings of the card and it has a lovely texture to it as well. The top layer is paper from my stash (I have had it so long...).
The rosette is cut using an Alterations rosette die (Tim Holtz again!) and is edged with faded jeans distress ink.

The sentiment is cut with a Nestabilities Tag die and I cut the centre part with my Cricut. The stamp is from one of the Art Deco sets from Tanda. It fits this die perfectly!

I do hope we get lots of people for this class! I love these cards!
