|These are the cards we made on the night - we only had time for 3 cards, but everyone took home the template and supplies to make the rest at home.|
When I was planning this class, I made up a bunch of other samples to show how different the results can look just by changing up your colours and the stamps you use. It is a great way to fill your card box, or throw together a set of cards as a gift.
You could easily make up the base cards and make up a bunch of sentiments (Happy Birthday, Sympathy, etc) to apply to your card when you are ready to send it to someone.
The hardest part is deciding which stamps and colours to use! I found that limiting my colours to 2-3 made it easier to pull together the set. This is one project where preparation is a time saver. If you have card bases ready in the 2-3 colours, extra cardstock for the mats, a selection of sentiment stamps, a few ribbons, and a couple of punches or framelits ready before you start, it makes it much quicker.
Why not give this a try yourself? Have a look through your stash and see which sets might work well. Be sure to visit Mae Collin's blog (linked above) for her template and some inspiration.
Here's what I used - note a couple of the ribbons are retired unfortunately.
