April 2010

This month the projects for our craft class were provided by Claire.

The first card was made using a mixture of textures and embellishments. A delicate scalloped edge on the outside of the card was mirrored by the use of fancy edge scissors on the matting and layering card.

The second card showed the versatility of paper punches. The use of a contrast along the side of the card to highlight the delicate border punch made an elegant card which anyone would be pleased to receive. A number of flowers were punched out in the same colour paper as that used for the contrast strip.

And finally, we made a sturdy but attractive gift box, just right for that special occasion. A thick card was used for the box and it was decorated with ribbon and a tag with embellishments.

Among the projects we made this month was a lovely mountain and valley card, courtesy of Laura.
This card featured a clever dress embellishment, made using templates and colour toned paper. Some peeloff edging and corners added that extra "bling".
