Scrapbook Parade Class - BoBunny Serenity Cards


  It's amazing how many cards a person could get out of a 6 X 6 pad of designer paper. Carol asked me if I would be willing to teach a card class using the BoBunny Serenity 6 X 6. So the class at Scrapbook Parade will be on Tuesday, May 1st from 12:30 to 3:30, and we'll be making 6 cards! And here they are.


Here are the individual cards.


Hand cut top damask pattern that is repeated underneath as part of the pattern on the paper. Stamped Kaiser Craft Gypsy Sisters with Memento Tuxedo Black on Bazzill Burning Ember and framed it with Bazzill Licorice die cut with Spellbinders Labels Thirteen and Classic Ovals Large. Then added Rangers Enamel accents in black around the oval of the frame and the edges of the card.


I love using a fine border of black and it works very well with this card. I used Spellbinders Labels Thirteen, Petite Ovals Large & Small, and Fancy Tags Two.

Brown, beige and cream - letting the paper stand on it's own. I just added the chipboard frame with the brown backing stamped in white and the brown ribbon looped around the frame, tied with a double bow. To tie in the cream and beige with the bow I added the punched leaf branches in cream and attached two little beige flowers.


This card mixes and matches the papers of the pad with intricate cutting and layering of the flowers and flourishes as well as the different papers.


Because the paper in the pad is 6 X 6 and the height of the card is 7 inches, I to come up with another way to make it fit. Since there are three sheets per design, I was able to take a second sheet and add the scalloped strips ink distressed with Versa Magic Spanish Olive, covering where the scalloped strips end with the ribbon. I used Bazzil Olive and Golden Yukon cardstock to match the patterned paper. The stamped image is Hero Arts wood stamp 'Decorative Bamboo' matching the bamboo on the BoBunny Serenity paper. I punched holes near the bottom to feed the ribbon through.


The sixth, and final card, again has many popped up layers that make it a thick card, but very effective and dimensional. I was going to add a turquoise jewel on the banner peeking out of either side of the circle, but forgot. Will probably do so in class.

Thank you for taking a peek at the cards of this class. Happy crafting everyone!
