May Card Class

Card class had to be postponed this month since we were in a tornado warning the night it was originally scheduled.  Of course, when it's May in Kansas you get used to moving your schedule around to accommodate weather. 

That actually meant my May card class was really a two part class.  My parents and Grandma were planning to attend the class the night it was cancelled.  So, since they are from out of town and would not be at my house for the rescheduled date, I pulled out my projects and we created them in my house the night of the weather.  Fortunately, we were not needing to shelter from a tornado in the basement, but I somehow think even if we were, we would have just brought the card making supplies downstairs with us.  :)

Then, I had the rescheduled card class with the same projects last weekend.  We had a great time.  I love to hear giggling while creating is happening.

Here are the pics of the sample cards they worked from.  I like to give options when I hold a class.  So, while they did the same basic projects, they had some choice to help make their own design.

For Card #1, we played with the new Happy Birthday thinlits, the Color Theory DSP, Glitter Enamel Dots, and new embellishments in the 2016-2018 In Colors:  all products that will be available in the new 2017-2018 Annual Catalog.
Card 2 made thank you cards using the World of Thanks stamp set which is retiring and Sweet Sugarplum paper.  The choice happened when they decided whether or not to add Very Vanilla to their card fronts and chose butterfly embellishments as well as ribbon or baker's twine to add to their cards.

Finally, we made a box card toolbox together.  I always try to feature a card or 3D project that teaches a new technique.

 Since I had the monthly class in two parts, I was able to get two different votes for favorite card.  The first night, my family chose Card 1 with the Happy Birthday Thinlits.  The ladies who attended the rescheduled card class voted for Card 3--the toolbox card.  Which one do you prefer?  Please comment with your choice.
