Topstitch Cards

Last night, I had the first of my monthly Card Workshops for February.  This month we are using the new Topstitch Level 2 Papers.  Each month, we create 10 cards - 2 each of 5 designs, using a specific Level 2 Paper Packet.  I've simplified my workshops by using the Workshop on the Go designs, however they are slightly modified.  As I try to keep the cost of the workshop to $10, some of the cards may not be as elaborate as those shown in the Workshop on the Go.

Originals: Winning Combination

Techniques: Scissor Distressing, Paper Piercing, Sponging

As I couldn't use the Dimensional Elements Hearts (cost issue), I opted to use a punch and punch them from cardstock.  The hearts are sponged in Chocolate Ink to give them an "edge", then pop-dotted for dimension.

Check my calender for my next Card Workshop, or contact me to schedule your own workshop with you and your friends! 

Until next time...
