Yes, I know, some of the letters are wonky but I thought I wanted them to look totally random. And I still can't get that chunky embossing powder to look bumpy and not smooth and still stay on the card!

Here is my take on Kelly Marie's card technique. I tried to work on this a little in the am, a little in the aft and a little in the pm but wow, I am sometimes so slow! Wish I had more time to spend on this card cause all I can see are the flaws. Drat!

Day 3 class, OMG, what inspiration! I fell in LOVE with Debby's cards and they are so different from my typical card that I just had to try her technique. This is my take on it.

What a great first day of class! Everyone's cards were so beautiful that I wanted to try ALL the techniques and right away and even on the same card! (not). Anyhoo, I decided to try the emboss/watercolor technique that Kristina used. I had a somewhat different background stamp but it is not totally dissimilar in style so I thought it would work well. I loved the colors so much that I decided to leave the image whole and not trim it down. I die cut the "Love" die from Simon Says Stamps twice out of three matching colored scrap papers and glued together just fractionally offset. Top layer spritzed with Heidi Swapp Color Shine.
The hearts were left over from another project and I was thinking a little rhinestone would have worked on one of them but I forgot to add it.

This was my first attempt at one of these fold-out cards and it was really challenging since it has to look good open and closed (of course I forgot to photograph it closed!) My grandson loved it and that was all that mattered.
