Club Cards

DSCF0186

Thought I would share the two cards my hostess club members made this month. The first one featured the Framed Tulips embossing folder done as a square instead of a rectangle, and the silhouette image from Easter Blossoms:

Edited to add: I learned to make the square embossed piece from my creative friend Donna at Butternut Sage. You can see a video of it here. We made a little “ruffle” of Newsprint DP at the bottom, and her basket was filled with Easter egg pearls!

The next one featured the Black Magic technique. A bold image was stamped in Craft white ink on Basic Black cardstock, then colored with SU colored pencils. This highlighted the SAB set Punch Bunch, the In Color Peach Parfait, and the Elegant Lines embossing folder:

I think everyone really enjoyed these; I know I did!
Be sure to stop back tomorrow for a new Paper Players challenge!!!
