I have been busy crafting but not blogging. Last week I went to a card class at my local craft store. We were all given 6 & a 1/2" Paper Pad, Frosted by Kaisercraft. We also received some wooden elements, a snowflake die cut out of glitter paper, some silver glitter washi tape & some silver twine. We were then shown how to make several cards which we did. Here are the cards we made.
For this card we added lots of layers using the paper from the pad. We cut a length of the silver glitter washi tape, folded it back on itself and flagged the ends, it looks like silver ribbon - I thought this was a very clever idea. The image and greeting also came from the pad. The wooden snowflake is just peeking out from the greeting.
For this card we were given the stamped frame that we had to fussy cut. I don't know which stamp set this came from or who makes it, sorry I forgot to ask! The white paper with the splats was ordinary white card stock that we dipped and dragged through some blue distress ink that had water added to it. Then we added some splats/flicks of a silver metallic ink. We fussy cut the tree out of a piece of paper from the pad. The image, sentiment circle and music paper also came from the paper pad.
Now this card was billed as the masculine card. We pasted the music paper onto a white card base then topped it with a patterned paper that had been embossed so as to add texture and interest. Teresa the lovely lady who ran the class told us that patterned papers that we didn't really like could be put in embossing folders to add some visual interest. Interesting idea, I hadn't thought of that, I usually just don't use them!!!
This was the paper pad we used. It's actually a great pad full of patterned papers, images, tags, borders, sentiments & greetings. There is a whole collection that goes with this set of papers. It also comes in 12x12" papers. I believe there is even a coordinating stamp set as well. Pop over to Kaisercraft to check it out. I am not affiliated or linked with Kaisercraft. I just happen to like this particular paper. We got to take the rest of the pad home after the class was finished.
Pop back for the next post to see what I made with the rest of this paper pad once I got home, I even surprised my self with what I came up with.
Have a great day.
Cheers Donna :)
