But I was delighted when I was asked to divvy up a few cards, teaching and talking to people is part of my day job, so that part of the class wasn't going to be an issue, it was the actual cards that I had to get on with. I took the decision to go with a birthday theme and to introduce a few techniques I'd seen in some magazines a few months back.
I knew I wanted to incorporate beads in one of the cards, that could double up as a simple bookmark. So here is the card that I came up with
Stamping never used to be a technique that I enjoyed, but lately its all I appear to do so I decided that I would move away from the stamping and just use dies and punches to achieve the second card. I was really pleased with how this next card turned out so I tried it in two different colours.
In pinks and reds
I still cant decide which I prefer, but my husband has decided that the green one will be used for his sisters birthday, so I think perhaps I should make my decision from that. Hope you like, please tell me what you think!
