This Saturday's Workshop : Making Some Very Basic Cards

This Workshop/Crop ladies will stay on for an additional 3 hours, into the evening (and after the full day Workshop/Crop) learn some basic card making skills...we'll be doing both a daytime and an evening Workshop all the time part of our regular schedule...every month.

Most of these fantastic ladies are scrappers ..more than they are card makers....but at the daytime Workshop/Crop...we do a mini card making workshop in the morning...and they have taken an interest in making now we are extending our Saturday Workshop/Crop into the evening hours...with a 3 hour Cards only Workshop!

This being the first Saturday for the Cards only Workshop...we are starting out with these very basic..non-complex cards...

I love the chocolate chip/baja breeze combo...and added the beautiful SU Parisian Breeze Specialty paper to ths grouping and SU Baja Breeze Classic ink , of course....

The butterfly was done with the Martha Stewart Punch and the Parisian DSP...the flower was made by layering and curling up the edges of all 3 Boho Blossoms punch pieces..and finishing off with a litle bitof self adhesive bling.

These cards were simple and easy to make...yet will allow beginner card makers the opportunity to experience making their own embellishments..using punches..Cuttlebugging...and a little bit of basic matting...

Once I demonstrate the card...everyone works at their own pace...independently....making the cards..(or their own variations of what was demonstrated)....each person will go home that evening with as many cards as was comfortable and possible for them to make..again..after having worked at their own pace...those who work more slowly..will make fewer cards than the ladies whom I refer to as "speedsters"...

I,personally,am very happy and excited to see a group of passionate scrappers take an interest in card making...I believe that the skills they have already honed in ther scrapping will make each of them fantastic card makers!
