Shades of Blue Card Gift Set - Scrapbookers Class

I thought that it would be fun to base a class on a color, so I came up with "Shades of Blue" for May 10th. In completing the cards, I figured that it would make a nice gift set and decided to include a card box. The cards are A2 (4 1/4"x 5 1/2") in size. I also kept in mind that these cards should be mailable so I did not do very much pop-dotting.

This anniversary card uses the technique of ink resist via heat embossing, applying ink and rubbing off the eccess ink over the embossed surface.

I used the following for this card:
-Spellbinders Labels One
-Heidi Swapp Swirl clear stamp heat embossed with white powder
-MSE - True Friends - butterfly - clear stamp heat embossed with white powder and cut out usung scissors
-VersaMark and Versa Magic Aegean Blue ink
-Pale blue ribbon and three light blue rhinestones

This "Thank You" card uses some Cuttlebug embossing and more Spellbinders.

In the creation of this card I used:
-Cuttlebug and special edition Checkerboard folder
-Spellbinders Scalloped Rectangle and Standard Rectangle
-Fiskar's Apron Lace border punch (which is now broken so I may hve to use a different border puch for the class kits)
-MSE - True Friends (stemmed leaves)
-Versa Magic Sea Breeze and Clear embossing powder

This next card uses both the negative and positive parts of cut flower. When curving the flower petals it reveals the background color.

I used Cricut's Plantin Schoolbook cartridge to cut the flower out of the white cardstock. However, you could use a flower punch, or a die cut.

I also used:
-Cuttlebug Swiss Dot folder
-Liquid Pearls - Lemon Yellow
-Versa Magic Aegean Blue ink
-Fiskar's Apron Lace Border Punch (which is now broken and I may have to substitute with another border punch)
-Crop-a-dile Corner Chomper
-Yellow button and white embroidery floss

This "Get Well" card I used a stamp on cardstock to create a background pattern and then cut circle using Spellbinders Standard Circles.Using the die I pierced holes about every 1/8th inch and with a gel pen connected the holes to create a stitching effect. I used the ruler to do the same around the edge of the card.

In the stamped flowers I used a clear Spica pen to fill in which darkened the color of the paper slightly and gave a bit of sparkle to the flower.

And for the card gift box, you may have seen this on our blog before. I just love this box and it is easy to make. I've even adjusted this pattern to fit different sized and thicknesses of cards.
