August 2012 Card Class

Saturday was a busy day in crafting; loved it!  What better way to spend a day with friends and fellow crafter's creating new things; doesn't get any better than that.

For this month's class we made 3 cards with 3 different techniques and one card style.  Faux linen, faux silk, embossed kisses and a double dutch card.

My favorite was the faux linen and faux silk techniques.  I combined both techniques on one card and loved how they turned out I will do this technique again.  For the faux linen you take glossy paper and sand it in one direction than turn the card stock and sand in the same direction until all the glossy is off the paper.  Take distress ink and you can see the horizontal and vertical lines giving it that fabric look; so cool.

The faux silk was fun and so simple.  Stamp an image on tissue paper, crinkle the tissue paper up to create wrinkles.  Unfold the tissue paper and glue it to a piece of card stock removing some of the wrinkles but not all of them.  What a quick and easy technique.

The embossed kisses didn't work so well and I need to experiment more with it.  What we did create was cool it just didn't transfer the 2nd ink color from the embossing folder so I'll experiment with different color inks and see what happens.

The double dutch card was simple to make but wasn't my favorite style of card.

Below are photos of my cards.

Embossed kisses technique is on the guitarist with the marble technique as the background.  The top guitarist I used a spider web embossing folder and the bottom guitarist I used a folder with circles.
