July Workshop Up Close

I thought you'd like to see the five cards we made up close.  :)

This first card is Lower Layers.  The Sunset paper has been inked with Sunset ink, and Cocoa paper inked with Cocoa ink.  The small flower has been raised with mounting foam.  The green button has a piece of tied Lagoon Baker's twine.  A second card can be easily made to match this one.  The flower color and sizes have been swapped.
This second card is a new pattern from CTMH.  It was developed for the Stella Workshop on the Go project.  The bird is raised with mounting foam.  The green and colonial white paper has been direct to paper edge distressed.  There is a second branch and bird, so a second card can easily be made.
Sentiment Wave is the name of this third card.  I duplicated the top part of the template on the flap of the die cut card.  When you lift the flap, the design is also there.  I think this saying is nice and can be used as a thinking of you for a family member.  Our family is often overlooked.  It would feel really good to get a card in the mail out of the blue.  :)  Everything has been direct to paper edge distressed in Cocoa ink (including the circle saying).  To duplicate this card, you could use some of the left over flowers in place of the circle.
The fourth card of the workshop was this Top It Off card.  The stitched pieces of paper is the zip strip from one of the background and textured papers.  The papers are direct to paper edge distressed in Lagoon ink.
Finally, we have the Top View pattern from Wishes.  I've enlarged the Cocoa square to be 3"x3" to frame the flower.  the leaves are a separate canvas shape.  Here the Sunset paper has been scored every 1/4" and then sanded.  The Cocoa paper has also been sanded.  The zip strip band sticks out from the flap so part of it shows when the card flap is laying down.

I hope you enjoy making these cards and/or can see how versatile our products can be.  No stamping required with these cards!  If you must stamp, you can always stamp the inside.
