Last card for May, we're hitting the halfway mark for this year!

Today's card is called the impossible card. 
When these caught my eye they were larger cards,
you all know I like my standard invitation size!

By George I did it!
This is a fun card any size you make it.
These are flattened and how they will look coming out of the envelope.

This is with the part that stands up.

Please bring your basic class kit
scissors and/or paper trimmer
pencil w/ eraser
favorite coloring medium
(I used water based markers)

I think that should do it!
Stay cool and see you Thursday!

Today's card features another Laurel Burch stamp 
called Carlotta's Garden.
 A friend recently showed me some Laurel Burch cards 
made with color bursts rather than all that coloring.
This is a quick way to add multiple bright colors 
with a bit of shimmer.

Please bring your basic class kit
black edger

That should do it, enjoy your week!

You all know how I love to troll the Internet for new ideas.
This is one of those cards that everyone is doing.
It's called a bridge fold card.
It's basically a double Z card with a strip 
that spans across the front, the bridge.
Best of all for me is that it 
folds to fit in an invitation envelope, yay!

Google it or search pinterest, there are so many variations 
and creativity.

Please bring your basic class kit
bone folder pencil w/ eraser
black edger
favorite coloring medium
(I used water based markers)

That should do it, see you Thursday.
