Card 3

Here is a card using the tone-on-tone layering technique from day 3 of the class. I'm pretty pleased with it. It is simple and clean. I wanted to keep it low key, it's a card for a sick friend.

I silver heat-embossed the sentiment. Here are a couple tips I gleaned, if you haven't tried this technique yet:

  • Use color-core cardstock, or you'll mostly just see white on the sides of the layers.
  • Glue down the top layer last, so it doesn't get all gluey and dirty as you glue down layer after layer. Take it from me!
I am enjoying the class. I am learning that there is a whole world of card bloggers and cardmaking websites out there, with contests, giveaways and challenges that I never knew about. I'm glad that we have permanent access to the class materials, because all the techniques and projects are a lot to take in.

That's a cute card for your friend, I love the color and how you arranged the elements.
You're right about the "whole world of card bloggers" - it's awesome how much inspiration is out there. The CAS class is a great opportunity to finally create instead of just collecting ideas.

The silver embossing was a classy touch-nice!
