Thank you cards!

I had such a good time yesterday with the lovely and fabulous Clair! :-) Thanks so much for coming over, my dear - it was, as ever, a real pleasure to spend time with you, I'm so grateful to you for the expertise, ideas and some of the tools and materials to get me started on my necklace (photo will follow, folks, but I want to embellish it first) and it was also fun to share the free Jessica Sprague cards class with you.

Here are the first few cards from the class:


We printed off a few extra bits of the basic 'print, trim and fold' cards so we could make them look less flat - here's how mine turned out.


With this one I stuck pretty closely to the instructions, but cut the pieces down rather, used a spare strip of paper instead of ribbon, and added lots of ink!

I've printed and trimmed all the bits for the next two cards from class but haven't had time to finish them off yet. Photos of those will follow in due course...

Have a great weekend everybody :-)

Love what you did with the Thank you card! It's interesting to see the different interpretations different people have been taking on these cards.

Wonderful cards. Have a great weekend.

Clair said...

Aww! You know I love visiting :)

And, how strange is it, that despite what Rinda said about different interpreatations, that we independently did almost exactly the same things?

They look lovely Mel, are you enjoying the class?

I love the bit of lace and the glitter! I haven't had time to poke around in the gallery so I'm happy to see your interpretation. I definitely think the cards need these bits of embellishment.

I love that little bit of lace, a nice personal touch. I've been enjoying seeing how everyone has been putting their own spin on these cards.
