January 2009 Class Projects - The cards!

I had so much fun creating these cards. I wanted to keep it simple, but sometimes, that's the hardest to design because you want to keep adding stuff! We made 5 cards to go in one of the sides of the drink holders. I just love these notecards because you can order 20 notecards with envelopes for only $5.95 (from SU). You get the same smoothness as with the whisper white cardstock. Anyway, I'm starting with my favorite of the 5 cards. This card was actually created last. I guess saved the best for last? Although everyone said it was a cupcake, it actually is a bon bon, but cupcake could work too! I used SU's 1 3/8" circle punch in close to cocoa, added a cute real red heart using our new Heart to Heart punch. The paper cup was cut out of regal rose cardstock. I used my white gel pen to add the little dots. I'm gonna try to see if I can upload a pattern for it, but if not, I'll be happy to send you a pattern for it if you email me to request for one. This card was finished off with a 5/8" real red grosgrain ribbon. This card is so sweet! Here's a close up of the "cupcake"
The simpliest of the cards...only stamping. I'm thinking a embossed frame around it might have looked elegant too.
Used the left over Candy Lane DSP for the strip.
The splash of color was added using a sponge dauber (pink pirouette).
Here's the inside.
The background was stamped using a stamp from the Much Love stamp set. This set, the heart to heart punch and Candy Lane DSP is available through the end of January in our Love Bundle.
I used the curly label punch and the spiral punch to add some interest. Regal rose 5/8" grosgrain ribbon.
Here's a close-up.
I'll be posting the clips tomorrow! Happy Thursday! I need to work on my class projects for February and March already!! Gonna be posting the schedule tomorrow too! Hope you are having a fabulous week!

Teri your "simple" cards are beautiful!!!! You are right when you say that making a simple card isn't simple at all to make. It's difficult to maintain the clean lines yet let the beauty pour through at the same time. You did a fantastic job and your cards are beautiful indeed!
