Crazy for Cards Event

Hershey's Hugs with Paper Hug Card

Thanks Oodles Card

This past Saturday, we held our Annual Crazy for Cards Event.  This event is a wonderful way to get exposure to many different styles of cards, techniques and fold styles.  This year we created 9 different standard sized cards along with 9 mini cards.

We had 3 instructors who each designed 4 projects and 34 ladies registered.  It was an all day extravaganza of card making FUN!

Here are the projects we did:

Congrats Double Dutch Card

Card #1

This is a Double Dutch Fold Card which focused on embossing and coloring with alcohol markers.  I love how the embossed look not only gives more dimension, but also helps you stay in the lines easier when coloring. =) And you just can’t go wrong with our Foil Tape!

Donut Window Card w/ Belly Band

Open Donut Window Card

Card #2

This card focused on using our Sugar Rush Thin Cuts to not only cut out the donut and it’s coordinating glaze/sprinkles, but also the window for the card base.  I love how beautiful the Sugar Rush Dots are–so much sparkle to them!
