These are the projects my friends made at my June stamp classes. All cardstock is cut and scored for my guests, an envelope is provided for each card, and they simply copy the sample provided.

Project #1 -- PATRIOTIC CARD
This card is a CASE from notimetostamp on SCS. See her original card HERE. The only change I made to the card was to add a sentiment from Warmest Regards stamp set on the front. Guests chose "Happy Birthday", "Thank You", or "Congratulations". This is a favorite stamp set that will be missed as it retired today.

Paper: Night of Navy, Real Red, Whisper White CS
Ink: Night of Navy Ink Pad
Accessories: Silver Brads, White Grosgrain Ribbon
Tools: 1/16” Handheld Punch

NOTE: Double stack foam tape for added dimension. Fold star at lines for depth.

This card measures 4 3/4 x 4 3/4 to fit a 5 x 5 CD Envelope. Inspired by Cambria on SCS. See her original card HERE. I love the way the flower peeks through the window of the envelope! I'm in love with this new stamp set, PICK A PETAL! ... so many possibilities!

Oh my gosh -- did I chuckle when I saw your first card, the patriotic one!!! My ladies loved that card -- it was very popular -- I then designed some scrapbook pages based on that card design and they were popular (and easy) as well!!! Glad you liked it enough to use it!!! Thanks for the mention!!!
