More April Club Cards

I have a couple more of the April Club cards to share with you.  Although my Tuesday group only ended up making the Anti-Bacterial Soap Holder and two of the cards. They took too much time watercoloring!!  I seem to always think they can work faster than they actually do.  But, no matter, the cards will be here next month!  We'll see what Thursday's group gets accomplished.

This is a very pretty white on white card using Kindness Matters (which didn't retire!!)
  •  Cut two pieces of Whisper White cardstock:  10” x 4 ¼” AND 4” x 5 ¼”
  •  Emboss smaller white piece with Stripes Embossing Folder and Big Shot
  • Wrap pleated green ribbon around and adhere to white embossed piece
  •  Die cut an oval with Big Shot & Oval Decorative Embossing Folder.  Adhere to card with dimensionals.
  • Stamp “thanks” and one of the butterflies from Kindness Matters onto a white scrap and punch out with large Oval Punch.  Adhere to the embossed oval with dimensional. 
  •  Stamp butterfly on scrap of white with Pear & Pacific Point markers and cut out. Adhere to card with dimensional.
  •  Make a bow using Seam Binding Ribbon and glue to side of card.
  • Punch small flower and glue to top of bow.  Adhere a small pearl in center of flower.

This great card uses two of my favorites - the stamp set, Field Flowers and two-step stamping.

  • Very Vanilla cardstock:   10” x 4 ¼”  and 2 ½” x 4”
  • Black cardstock:  2 ¾” x 4 ¼”
  • Mocha Morning DSP – 4” x 5”
  • Adhere DSP to Vanilla card.
  • Adhere small Vanilla piece to Black cardstock.
  •  Stamp leaves & stems from Field Flowers onto Vanilla card stock with Early Espresso ink..
  • Insert brad in lower corner. Adhere matted vanilla piece to the DSP & card.
  • Stamp flowers onto scrap Vanilla – use Crumb Cake ink for the solid flower & Espresso ink to the other flower (two step stamping).
  •  Cut flowers out and adhere to card using Dimensionals.
  • Stamp sentiment onto Vanilla & punch out with large Oval Punch
  • Punch  Designer Label in black.    Mount Oval onto Black label.
