This is the final card from my April Monthly Card Class. It is a fun challenge to come up with card designs that can be made with minimal stamping, since none of my participants have the same items in their personal craft supplies.
For this one I turned to the Peaceful Poppies Elements on p. 25 of the January - June Mini Catalogue. We used one of the black-on-black embossed elements, along with some of the white-on-vellum embossed flowers and leaves. I gave each customer 2 sponge daubers in their kit, and the coloured panel coordinated with an ink colour I knew they owned (having requested a list of their ink inventory in advance). They could use their choice of green ink (again, I knew each had at least one green to choose from). The colours I sent out were Rich Razzleberry (like in my picture) Flirty Flamingo, and Highland Heather. All turned out great!
Again, you'll see I used the same birthday sentiment on this card as I did the other 3 in this month's kit that needed one. I could have mixed it up, but I wanted to show that there is a lot of versatility in a simple sentiment and a small collection of stamps shouldn't keep one from creating.
Why don't you join us and play along in May? See class details below.

Kits can be picked up from my residence in Melbourne using safe, social distancing protocols, or I can ship via Australia Post tracked satchel. Come give this a try - perfect if you've always wanted to try my classes and can't attend in person.
