Monday Card Class

Thank you to everyone who came along to my card class last night, I hope you all enjoyed it, and well done to those of you you came along for the first time, you all coped really well, I hope you had fun!!

Here is one of the cards we completed using "Touch of Nature" which is a really lovely set comprising of 7 stamps, all with a nature theme.  For this card we only used 3 of the stamps, one for the background and the two on the main layer of the card.  We stamped the flower four times and used Dimensionals to raise two on top of each other.  The butterfly image was stamped using Old Olive ink, hand cut and adhered only along the body so that its wings were free to fold up giving it a 3D effect!

We put the card together using Night of Navy cardstock as the base and teamed it with Old Olive, Whisper White and Kraft.  We used the Scallop Border Punch to create a decorative edge at the bottom of the card and paper pierced rows of holes at the top and bottom of the Night of Navy top layer.  The "foliage" stamp was inked with Old Olive and randomly stamped over Whisper White to create a background.

Stamps: Touch of Nature
Inks: Night of Navy, Old Olive
Cardstock: Night of Navy, Old Olive, Kraft, Whisper White
Accessories: 1 3/4" & 1 3/8" Circle Punches, Scallop Border Punch, Mat Pack & Paper Piercer


  1. This card is really lovely and am glad I was there to make one. A great night as always Kerry, thanks. Its a rare opportunity to be able to sit and make a card without planning it or doing the prep work....

  2. Hi Kerry I echo what George said it is a treat...Its also great to use a stamp set which you are not sure of and look at it in a new light.
