Another Online Card Class begins - hooray! I've had a busy day with babysitting nieces and trying to get envelopes to match some wedding invitations I am making (found an exact match! Yay! and they were on the discount shelf, so got the last 100 for 50% off! Hooray!!), so I've only had time to make one card today (and assist with making 2 cards with eldest 2 nieces).
I decided to go with the sketch of Amber Kemp-Gerstel's card - I used the Memory Box Arboscello Tree die, but cut all the leaves off. Added a glittery heart and a Hero Arts sentiment (which originally read "I have you in my heart" but I cut it in half.)
Here are the cards my nieces made using sketches from today's class. Lauren (who is 10) used Amber's sketch, same as I did - we made a reverse mask for the tree, stamped Impression Obsession Cover a Card "Vines" using three different distress inks, then sponged with the orange. The trunk is a modified die from Stampin Up (extended the trunk and removed the leaves), and added a Hero Arts sentiment and birdie:
Caitlin (almost 8) used Kristina Werner's sketch as a starting point (in the bottom right hand corner), but decided to add some pink butterflies (from Hero Arts) and flowers. Caitlin particularly loves pink ;)
