Card Class Card #4, the Second Get Well Card…!

Hello ALL!

Last Card from Wednesday Evening’s Card Class!

Today’s Card is a CASE (Copy and Share Everything)

from Dawn Olchefske.

I made this card for a Card Swap at the Stamp & Scrap Expo

in Chantilly VA, last June!

I did my swap in Smokey Slate…this time I replicated Dawn’s Card

with the Night of Navy!


Here is my take on Dawn’s Card!


This is called a “spotlight” technique!


Here is the inside of the Card!


I never saw the inside of Dawn’s Card…so I made my own inside!

The Ladies stamped what they wanted on their card’s innards’!




Whisper White Thick- card base, 8.5” x 5.5” score @ 4.25” fold in half on the score

Whisper White Regular- scrap piece to stamp the ‘spotlight’ part of dandelion

front panel, 3.25” x 3.75”

Night of Navy- front panel, 3.5” x 4” small scrap piece to punch scallop circle


Dandelion Wishes- greeting and inside dandelions

Healing Hugs- inside sentiment


Night of Navy- greeting, inside sentiment, front and inside dandelions

Mango Melody- ‘spotlighted’ stamping


1” Circle Punch- circle

1 1/8” Scallop Circle Punch- scallop circle mat


Night of Navy Gingham Ribbon- about 8” to tie bow

Rhinestones Basic Jewels- center of front dandelion


I really like this Card! I have made several of these for my stash too!

This is the last of the 4 Cards we made for our Card Class last Wednesday Evening!

We all will get together again on February 5th!

In February we will start the rest of the year off, making

one Christmas Card design a month!

The Ladies will be making 2 of the Christmas Cards, monthly!

This will help them to build up their Christmas Card Stash too!

By December 2nd they will have made up many Cards for their stash!

July will be Christmas In July! 2 each of 4 Christmas Cards!

And then again for the months of November and December too!

Those 3 mos. alone will give them 24 Cards for their stash!

WhooHoo! A good way to get a jump on them!

Until the next Post…Blessings and Wellness to you ALL!

Card Class Card #3…Get Well!

Hello All!

Thank you for peeking back for Today’s Card!

The Ladies selected for the Class, 2 Valentine Cards and 2 Get Well Cards!


Here is the first Get Well Card!


After fussy cutting the rose and leaves, I used a Stampin’ Write Marker in

Petal Pink and in Mossy Meadow and ran the edges of the cut outs along

the tip of the markers. It gets rid of the ‘white core’ and defines the item!


Here is the inside of the Card!


I decided to bring the rose and leaves, inside too!



Whisper White Thick- card base, 8.5” x 5.5” score @ 4.25” fold in half on the score

Whisper White Regular- 4” x 5” piece to stamp rose and leaves to fussy cut


Perennial Essence DSP- mat, 3” x 4”  (yes the mat Petal Pink mat, comes from the same  DSP Paper pack!)

floral piece, 2.75” x 3.75”


Itty Bitty Greetings- greeting

Healing Hugs- inside sentiment, rose & leaves on front (fussy cut) and inside


Petal Pink- roses

Old Olive- leaves

Blackberry Bliss- greeting and inside sentiment


Metallic Edged Ribbon-Petal Pink- about 6” to make the bow

Champagne Rhinestones Basic Jewels- 4 on card front

I am really liking those new Champagne Rhinestones AND the Ribbon!
