A few cards to share...

All this Gourd talk and I completely neglected to post some of the cards from WCMD last Saturday! *smacks her own hand*
We cranked out 10 cards total so they had to be simple but still eye catching. I used my Big Shot to knock out the circles & scallops (3 pieces of cardstock at once!) using my Nesties Classic Circle & Scallop Circle dies. I used textured white cardstock for the card base and layered a cute pink striped paper on the base, a small strip of lighter pink just above it and pierced double lines all the way across. I used this same layout but switched up the colors & stamps for another card (show ya tomorrow) and I just love them both!

This next one is great for anyone...guys, girls, youngsters, co-workers. It's hard sometimes to create a basic birthday card, I tend to get too foofy or girly. I used textured Chocolate Chip (I really have fallen in love with all the textured cardstock for card bases, it allows even the most simple card to look fantastic) and added this fun striped paper along the bottom. I layered that strip onto bashful blue, which now I realize I didn't even have to do since it looks like the paper! The ribbon is looped through the side of the card and knotted, but the Bday layer is popped up on dimensionals to cover the ribbon slot punch.
I'll be showing the other cards in the coming days, can't reveal EVERYTHING at once or there's not reason to come back, right? ;)
FYI for Tracy, the Gourds are from a local craft fair in California and she doesn't have a website nor sell online. You can email me privately and I'm sure we can work out a pix text while at the craft faire shopping kinda thing. That goes for everyone who's interested...but you must be able to get pix messages on your cell phone. We can do this people! Enablers Untie! errr Unite!! LOL

I didn't realize foofy was a word (other than the fact that I say it) until you said it! Go figure...LOL! Love the cards-they are nice and clean but are very elegant looking! Hope you had a great class!
