Card Class planned (finally)

Card club planned! Finally, this month was truly a labor of love because I haven't been able to be creative over the course of the semester.  I think I needed kick start my creative brain.  The first card (the Father's Day card) was pretty much from my brain.  I knew I wanted to have the girls create their own background paper using the stamps from this set (which I love!! I'll get into why later in the post).  I thought a lot about how to do what I wanted to do, which was probably was my problem,  I over thought.  I looked on Pinterest for inspiration and I saw a triple layer card and thought this is perfect! So I set out to create it.  I put it together and stared at it for quite awhile I originally was have the score line on the left.  I didn't like that so finally I flipped the card, so the line would be on the top! That was the ticket.  I cut the shape for the sentiment using my gypsy so I could create the perfect mat for it (which is soooo easy with the gypsy).  I love how it came out over all. Now why do I love this stamp set? It reminds me of my great grandfather.  He was very talented man when it came to tools.  He created two of the large funiture pieces in my craft room (the dry sink which I use as my Cricut station and the huge hutch that I store all my close to my heart stamps on).  I will hopefully post an updated room tour soon.  I have to pick up first.  I might even do a video!  On to the second card. 
The second card is based on a card in the catalog (page 50). I used a different trailer stamp and instead of using what looks like a my stickease sticker I stamped the tree from the stamp set behind the trailer because I cut the trailer out of off white cardstock I could stamp it so it looks like a taller tree behind the trailer.  I also didn't use the 3-D embellishments to keep down costs plus I didn't have them on hand anyway. I like what I came up with and hope the girls do too.  
Pin It Now!
