January Card Class

Here are the cards we're making at Card Class today. The first two use the NEW Veranda paper (my favorite) and yes, that "Love Birds" stamps set again. Also used the Felicity stamp set that is part of the promotional kit for National Papercrafting Month.

I thought having a more masculine birthday card might be in order. I always tend to design girly cards, and since there ARE men in the world still it might be nice to make something for them every once and a while too. So on this first card, I used the Felicity set in a "manly" way. The main image is a stamp designed to be used as a bird like in my last card, but I thought if I just don't ink up the beak, then it looks like a paisley. That paired with the cool argyle stamp from the same set as well as the cocoa side of this dp, and everything is set for a dude's birthday card.

Told ya you'd be seeing this Love Birds ss again! It's just too cute not to! Same idea with the stamping as in Wednesday's card as far as adding dimension to the bird cage and having the music flow out of the cage. The sentiment is so fun!

The third card also uses the paper from the Felicity kit and you might recognize it from a previous post. I didn't really feel like designing another card, so I just decided to use what I already had. ;)
