Basic card making lesson

Beginner Card Making class knocked this beauty out with no problem! And the Stampin' Up! Many Marvelous Markers got a bunch of new fans.

Again, I love to "let the DSP (designer series paper) do the work." For this card we picked a pretty DSP and covered the card base, then selected some embellishments that coordinated. A length of ribbon and a doily die-cut prepare the card for a focal point. At this point you could go in a lot of different directions, think of two hearts stamped in bold Real Red with a wedding sentiment or valentine sentiment. Or a flower and a birthday or sympathy sentiment. My stampers wanted to try the markers, so we picked an outline image that can be colored.  We used the coordinating sentiment, both from For The Birds stamp set. We popped an In Color Dahlia on the sentiment to tie-in with the coloring.

Easy Peasy and a design concept that can easily be adapted to any style or event!

Happy Stamping,
Dee Tollaksen
