Welcome back and thanks for visiting again today ;0)
Here is the first of my shares for today. This is the card that didn't make it into last months card class. I loved it and had started to prep it when I realised it was near identical to a card we had made before. I might have a go at designing a centre step card like this using different papers for February's class as I love this style. This card features Nature Walk and the matching retired papers from last years Mini Catalogue. This beautiful set is still available in the Main Ideas Book and Catalogue and remains one of my favourites to stamp with. The bird is one of my favourite images to stamp in Early Espresso and then colour with watercolour crayons.
I always like to finish each class with a quick and easy card (we're usually flagging after a 3D project and two more intricate cards). This was inspired by a lovely card I'd seen my upline Michelle make. I used different papers but kept the striking contrast between the black and bright colours. The DSP is Flirtacious from the main catalogue and the flourish and butterfly are from Creative Elements. I created the greeting to fit the circle using the Happy Birthday from Party This Way. I only coloured half the sentiment and stamped and then cleaned and coloured the other half and stamped.
