Young and old can make this

Last week I had the opportunity to work with a small group of elderly people who each made a small card like this.   I also did a workshop at a friend's house and her 8 year old son wanted to make the card we were doing too.  So young and old, and all those in between, can have fun creating cards like this.

Framelit Shaped Card

Today I held my montly card class and we made a shaped card using the Framelit Dies.  We did paper piercing around the edge and used a marker pen to draw on the "stitches". I think everyone enjoyed making the card and they really liked the new core'dinations paper which we embossed with the woodgrain embossing folder and then sanded. My card featured a bird, others in the class prefereed to have owls.  All the cards were all a little different and everyone was pleased with their efforts.

Here is the sample card I made:

A men's shirt card

Last week I attended Julia's class and got to make this wonderful man's card.  It uses the new core'rdinations paper which you can sand to give that rough finish to it.  I also had fun using the paper-piercing set to create that stitched look.  Much easier (and straighter) than getting my sewing machine out.

Ink: Early Espresso
DSP: Howlstooth & Scaringbone DSP
Card Stock: Core'rdiations Early Espresso, Very vanilla
Other: Core'dinations Sanding system, Button, Paper-Piecing Tool, Paper Piercing Mat, Paper-Piercing Essentials Pack, Early Espresso Marker
