Create a Card

I thought I'd share a couple of cards that we created in Friday's 'Simply Cards' Class. As the title suggests, this is the class to come to for quick and easy cards. We focussed on paper piecing this week and created two animal themed cards. The elephant is made from just four pieces, layered and attached with foam tape. The frog is just two pieces and the head is attached on a paper spring so that it wobbles from side to side. Hmmmm... the possibilities for nodding frogs to take over the dashboard from the usual nodding dogs - I feel a moment of 70's naffness to overcome!

Both cards have computer printed greetings, which make a nice change from peel-offs or stamped salutations. The papers for both animals are from the English Paper Company - a fabulous manufacturer that produces excellent designs for card making and scrapbooking. And the background for the elephant is a scrap of handmade paper - just torn along the top edge to make blue 'grass' (and why not!!)
