10-10-10 cards

Here are a few examples of the cards we'll be making this weekend at the 10-10-10 card class at the Westland Area Library. Spots are still available, but registration will close Thursday evening.

Remember, the idea are cards that can be made in 10 minutes or less. Any of these would be great when needing to make a large quantity, like Christmas cards or thank-you cards for birthday gifts.
The card with the sleigh took 7 minutes to make! Emboss the image in black, sponge on Perfect Plum, Brocade Blue, and Night of Navy ink. Border edge the mat layer and that's it! This set is called Wandering Words, set of 3, and is found in the holiday mini.

Punches are always an easy way to make quick cards! Easy use for the ornament punch from the holiday mini, pg. 7. The red/white ornament is DSP from the Holiday mini called Christmas Cocoa (pg. 21) and is flocked! The white feels like soft felt. So tactile!

Here are two more:

Autumn Splendor from the Holiday mini, page 12, has become a favorite. Also uses Lovely Letters alphabet. I really like making cards using the one sheet wonder method.
Thoughts and Prayers is another wonderful set that is great to have on hand for those sympathy cards that we all need, but hate to make.

Some hints about the sets used on the other cards:
Upsy Daisy and chalkboard
The new Build a Bear set and the circle scissor plus
the 5-petal punch
Very Thankful--the Ronald McDonald House set
House of Haunts

I still have room for Saturday.

Think of it this way: You can drive to the store, spend an hour choosing cards for a few events, spending $2.00 a card plus more because you should pick up a few things while you're there.

Come to class, create 10 unique hand-stamped cards that will make the recipient feel even more special because YOU made their card.
