March Card Class

I’m lucky enough to have a lovely group of ladies that come one a month to my classes, and the majority of these ladies have been with me for about three years, so I am trying to ensure that I step the cards up a bit as everyone’s skill levels have certainly increased. I am also mindful though that I have a couple of new ladies that have joined me this year and don’t want to overwhelm them with complicated cards.
This month we are focusing on the Classic Garage Suite because I find I never have enough male cards in my stockpile, and when I get a few they just disappear so quickly.
This first card is a fancy fold card, which I got the template of Gaynor Boyce another Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator in the UK. Please find the link here

If you are anything like me then you have the embossing paste in your stash and its just stayed there and not been opened. In line with my New Year’s Resolution to use what I have I decided to have a play with this. It was a bit messy but so much fun. I used one of the Stampin’ Up! Masks and then I also had another play with another mask that I had in my stash. To me this looks like the oil spill stamp so I thought it matched well.
