March Class "Furry Friends" Sneak Peek!
April Card Class "At the Beach" Sneak Peek

March Card Class "Furry Friends"

Here are the cards that we made in March’s class.  In keeping with the theme, three of the cards have furry friends.  The fourth card is a last hurrah to Sale-A-Bration that features the elegant and pretty Springtime Foils specialty designer paper.  Recipes are included with each project and the supply details are listed at the end of this post.
Card 1: Dog and Parrot
Who can resist this cute card featuring a dog, parrot and red balloon.  The images are from the Bella & Friends stamp set and the sentiment is from the Perennial Birthday stamp set.  The Ballon Bouquet punch was used to punch the balloon—the smaller sized balloon was used.

Card 2: Friends Fur-ever
These cute critters are from the We Must Celebrate stamp set.  The stamp set actually comes with the squirrel, raccoon, bear and rabbit standing in a row.  I cut the stamp so that the squirrel and raccoon were left together.  Because we use a clear block to mount the stamp, I can always put them back together to stamp them as a foursome.  Then the snail was stamped separately.

Card 3: Hedgehog
This cute little hedgehog is making another appearance.  We last used it on a notepad folder and little notepad.  You may have seen this little guy elsewhere.  He is made using the Painted Harvest stamp set and Foxy Friends stamp set (face and hearts dialog box).  His rosy cheeks were stamped using the eraser top on a pencil in Blushing Bride classic ink.  I’ve never pet a hedgehog, but I imagine this one to be furry.

Card 4: Sending You Hugs
This card features the pretty and elegant Springtime Foils Specialty Designer Series Paper, which is a Sale-A-Bration item.  The pack consists of 4 designs.  You can see from the photo that all designs were used.  I paired the silvers and the coppers together.  Each has a touch of gold so I used gold foil to frame the sentiment.  The sentiments are from the Lovely Inside & Out stamp set.  The ink and cardstock are Fresh Fig.  Somehow this color makes the metallics pop.
