"Cards for Her" - Featured Card Showcase
I look forward to the new Card Club Exchange board every month! It's so exciting to see the new batch of paper creations - the 'old' and 'new' designers, the seriously themed cards and the 'hmmm...didn't think of that!' cards. I know you're wondering what the "Cards for Her" featured card showcase is going to be...
You won't have to wait any longer!
Michele H.'s wonderful lantern card!
Michele embossed the vellum lantern by scoring the lines and cut out the lantern using a die.
This picture doesn't do the card justice...this card is full of shimmer and shine - the ribbon, the lantern, those tiny pearls. You have got to stop by Simple Pleasures to see this one for yourself...and all the other cards, too!
Some of the techniques used this month were both dry and heat embossing, coloring with chalks and Copics, mists and colorwashes. Lots of die cutting, too!
For those of you planning ahead, here are are few of the upcoming themes:
June - "Making a Splash"
July - "Christmas in July"
Aug - "Thinking of You"
If you have never participated in any of our Card Club Exchanges, please stop by the store to pick up a copy of the guidelines. (The basic guidelines ensure that everyone gives and receives wonderful creations!)
Inspired? Want to join us for May's Card Club Exchange?
The May theme is "Cards for Him" (and we've already heard that some of our participants have been working on this one!) Need a little nudge to get you going? Well, obviously these cards should not be of the female persuasion, think masculine...my first thoughts are metal, sports, fiber, nature, cars, motorcycles, understated colors and embellishments...think about the men in your life...what would they like to receive for Father's Day, birthdays or just because?
Your 10 (of the same design) cards are due no later than Saturday, May 21st. Don't be late...we close at 6:00pm. We look forward to seeing your cards!
