March 2010 Card Group Projects

These are the items we made at my March card group get together. We made a cupcake pocket card, a diaper fold pouch and a CAS Easter card.

We used Bazzill CS and Doodlebug patterned paper for the cupcake and decorated with punched circles for chocolate drops, silver Dew Drops and die cut cherries. We embossed the pink semi circle with the D'Vine Swirls Cuttlebug embossing folder before decorating. Highlight details were added to the choc drops and cherries with a white gel pen. The ric rac on the base is a die cut shape from the Ribbons Sizzix Decorative Strip die. The sentiment is a clear stamp from the Hero Arts Birthday Messages set.

The ladies wanted to know how to make a stand so that their pocket cards could stand up so we designed one on the day, it was a group effort! This photo shows the insert and the back of the cupcake with the stand. The sentiment, which is just perfect for these cards, is from the SU! Sweet Little Sentiments set. We added a punched flower with a holographic circle sticker in the centre. You need to keep the embellishments flat so the insert slides smoothly into the pocket.

Then we made a Diaper Fold Pouch using a 6" square of Magenta Robin's Nest double sided paper. I took different sentiment stamps so the ladies could make them for Easter or birthday. A Martha Stewart punched butterfly shape was added to the plain circle which we matted on the scalloped circle. We first stamped a speckle stamp (from the SU! Itty Bitty Backgrounds set) on the plain circle before attaching the butterfly. The bag closure was made using a die from the Spellbinders Label Trio set.

The final project was an easy 4" x 4" CAS Easter card using die cut shapes from the Sizzix Easter set of Sizzlits dies. The paper is from the K&CO 6" x6" Daisy pad and we added a scallop border made with the Sizzix Lace Edging Decorative Strip die. The sentiment is a Penny Black stamp. After I'd made the card I wished I'd have speckled the eggs with brown ink. A couple of ladies did that on the day and it made the eggs look a lot better.
