Workshop layered cards 1


I love teaching locally at the Art of Craft as I have to think outside my comfort zone and use products that I might not usually buy but I cannot stray from putting a vintage or shabby stamp on things. My samples for a recent layered cards workshop gave me an opportunity to design and create cards using kaiserkraft papers (sample 2) and dies from the shop. Both cards are exactly the same design I just used different papers and colours and I placed some of the elements differently.


My initial card was designed with papers I had at home ....



... and then with the kaisercraft pad.



You can see the dimension from using foam pads to help the layers build up.


I taught this to two classes and managed to get some photos of the results.















Thanks ladies for a great couple of workshops with fabulous results and each card stamped and elements placed in different ways. I always love the end of a session seeing all the similarities and differences, some of them are subtle but they make your card original to you. 
There are some more to come as I have taught four workshops in the last week so if you haven't seen me about much you'll know why!!!! I am hoping to get around to your blogs again in the next few days.

Wishing you all a happy weekend.

Love your style and follow your blog always. Those circular and wreath dies are not familiar to me. What company are they from? These cards look great and a lovely class project. Keep inspiring. xx
