#craftingnotcoding: The Crafty Card Class [April 2015]

I apologize for the delay in posting the April Crafty Card Set, the past few weeks have been crazy, and a lot of my free time was dedicated to making card for my very first theme week. It was so much fun that I have started thinking about another one for Father's Day! But that will have to wait till I am done with school! Not that I am counting, but its just 4 weeks away :D

Getting back to the cards, April had a really cute collection with a lot of kraft and gold, a combination that I am in love with. Maybe for Eid cards?

Let's get started with some details on the card! First up a birthday card. Once that is not too "flower-y" and can actually be given to a guy! Plus a great why to use your scraps!

This card starts off with kraft card base, and different sized triangles from your scraps. The sentiment here is a sticker, you can easily use a stamp and change it up to meet the occasion you need. Next you need to line up and layer the triangles, and stick them on above and below the sentiment.

Next up is a "circle and twine" card, its a another great way to use up your scarps and a sentiment of choice can easily be added inside.

For this card, you can use a circle punch or die to cut out the circles and then stick when on using foam dots for a bit of dimension (we all now that I love me some dimension!). But if you wish to add the twine, then remember to wrap it around and tie know before attaching the circle to the card base. If your circle is hanging off the edge of the card base, just trim it using a paper of scissors!

I just love this just cause of the golden twine pair with the gold foil paper! And making it could not be easier!

So to make this, cut strips of the golden chevron, glue it down, add the star stickers and finally wrap the twine around the card stock before attaching it to the card base.

This one is such a cute note card and such a creative use of a brown bag (and it has gold polka dots!)

For this, the "envelop" is already made, and for the notecard, layer a kraft sheet with a smaller white cardstock. Add a strip of hello paper at the bottom and a little ribbon notch that will let you pull it out of the envelop.

Save the best for last right? Well in this case, I saved my favorite for the last! One cannot go wrong with washi tape and rhinestones!

To make this card, layer some white card stock on to a colored card base. On the white paper, add strips of washi tape, scatter some rhinestones and add the hello sentiment. This "hello"  is a sticker, but you can also use die cuts.

Hope you enjoyed this month's cards, if you want try it out for your self, call up Ben Franklin and sign up for May's class! There is still time to sign up for tomorrow (May 15th 2015) or walk in and get the kit after :)

 Happy Crafting!
