February Card Class

This month began a new catalog season with Close To My Heart, and like always I was so excited to start creating with the new papers and images. I started off with the Stella paper and Fashonista stamp set. I threw in some of the Just For You stamp set as well.
Card #1 Recipe
Base: 5.5x4.25, White Daisy
Pattern Paper: 5.25x4, Stella
Lagoon 4.25x2.5, cornerns rounded
Sunset 3.75x2.25, corners rounded
I stamped the lady onto a piece of colonial white using cocoa ink and cut around, then on another piece of colonial white I stamped her again in sunset. I cut out her outfit and handbag and adhered them to the cocoa image then adhered to the card. Finish it off with a new pewter badge button.
Card #2 Recipe

bitty sparkles
I used the store stamp from the Fashionista set and embossed it using the white embossing powder. I also embossed the saying. Then adhere the .5 strip and the sunset cardstock.

I stamped one lady using cocoa ink then stamped her again in Lagoon. I cut the handbag out of the stamped Lagoon image and adhered it to the cocoa image. This was then adhered to the sunset cardstock. To add some interest I added 3 tiny sparkles to her handbag and one to the center of her belt.
