Fresh Cuts Class Card #1

Hi Stampers!

I attended this Fresh Cuts Class held at the home of Sandy Hancock's house. She is a fellow demonstrator and I am part of her first five levels of downline, and a member of her UdderlyAwesome Stampin' Group. Sandy also has a blog, so click here to check out some of her work.

Below is a picture of the projects we made. We actually made five cards and a cute little bag/tote to hold them. Unfortunately, I needed a quick birthday card for a friend so I gave it to her before getting a chance to take a picture of it with the others. Hence, the picture below only has four cards plus the bag.

I had a lot of fun making these cards using the Fresh Cut Notes, and they were so fast and easy to put together. Plus, I got to use the Big Shot and the new Big Shot Texturz Plates! These were super easy to use and really add an extra touch of elegance to your cardstock.

This first card is one of my favorites that we made that night because of the colors. The ribbon we used was the NEW 5/8" Whisper White Organza Ribbon. To dye the card, you simply drag the ribbon across the Almost Amethyst Classic Ink Pad using a sponge dauber. You do this to both sides of the ribbon, for several strokes, depending on how saturated you want your ribbon to be.
The background of the Fresh Cut Notes was done using the flower Texturz Plate from the Stampin' Up! Backgrounds 1. The Designer Series Paper that you see peeking through from behind the note card is from the Tea Party Designer Series Paper Pack. The small flower is from the Fresh Cuts stamp set, stamped onto Almost Amethyst cardstock and then cut out. It is adhered to the front of the card with a Lilac Circle Ice Brad. Easy Peasy, Lemon Squeezy! :o)
