Beginner's Spring Class Week #6!



Week #6 of my Beginner's Class at our local Adult Education location consisted of an Anniversary card and an Easter card. I gave the girls the choice of sentiments on the Anniversary card in case they wanted to turn it into a Wedding card. So let's look at this card first:




Although it may look complicated to a beginner, it really isn't. We stamped a flower repeatedly from the So In Love stamp set, on the background layer and then added leaves stamped in gold ink. Add a Lace Doily, a layer of Vellum Cardstock followed by a sentiment and two sprigs of leaves cut with the Bird Punch and the card is complete!





For card #2, this involved the Braided Fold which is cut using a pattern and folded. The class attendees thought this looked complicated but once I showed them how, they were amazed at how easy it was to achieve:





We used the Easter Message stamp set and colored the fabric with an Aqua Painter and Wisteria Wonder Ink from the ink pad. We added Clear Wink Of Stella on top of the colored ink to create a pretty look:




If you are interested in creating this braided card fold, I have the pattern on this post:

  1. Both cards are so very nicely done. I really like the braided fold...I've done that fold before but it was a long time ago...so thank you for the pattern and instructions...I definitely want to try to do it again.

  2. I thought the floral card was paper then I noticed the shiny gold and wondered. Now I see it is invented by the user. I like the braided fold. I haven't done it in a long time so I snapped up your pattern to try.
