April 2009 class projects, Part 1

Aloha Monday! Here are 3 of the 7 projects we did this month at class. This class was a tri-fold (or cards with folds) and money cards class. Here's the first card; a money card and a simple one too!A close up view of the band
It opens up where you can put some money for the graduate inside. Belly band to hold the card closed.
Stamp set: Great Grads
Cardstock: pumpkin pie, chocolate chip, old olive, summer sun
Inks: chocolate chip
Accessories: large star punch, small star punch, 1 3/4" circle punch

Here's another money card. I love this pull card. You can make it any size you want to. I featured the new Manhattan Flower embossing folder, so pretty! I lightly sponged Baja Breeze ink over the embossed flower to add some softness to it.
This is what it looks like when you pull on the ribbon. I used the slit punch to hold the money in place.
I love the new scallop oval punch and the stamps in the Oval All set that coordinates with it!
Stamp set: Oval All
Cardstock: Baja Breeze, chocolate chip, very vanilla
Inks: Baja breeze, chocolate chip
Accessories: Manhattan Flower embossing folder, scallop oval punch, crop-a-dile, slit punch, 3/8" chocolate organdy ribbon

This is a gate fold card with a belly band to keep it closed.
Here's what it looks like opened. I'm in love with this color combo! The flower on the band is not a new sizzix die. In fact, it's an old one! The DSP that I used for the flower was one of the patterns that was my least favorite in the paper pack. It made a pretty flower! Rhinestone brad in the center of the flower completed the look.
Stamp set: Great Friend
Cardstock: Baja breeze, night of navy
Ink: not quite navy
Accessories: Sizzix flower daisies #2, marvy giga scallop circle punch, rhinestone brads, glue dots, scor-pal.
Stay tuned for Part 2. The rest of the cards and our bonus project! If you ordered a kit, they are all done and will be sent out this week! Sorry for the delay!
Wishing you a wonderful start to a new week!
