Card class

 are the cards we made at card class.  These cards were inspired from the CTMH blog spot. The neat part about the card above is we used both sides of the stamp, that way you didn't need to  color the flowers in.

June Joyful Stars blog hop winner is Elizabeth, you will receive the Thank you stamp pictured above. Congratulations.  Comment on our next blog hop, July 10th and you could be a winner too.

Joyful stars June blog hop

Welcome to our first Joyful Stars blog hop. I hope you enjoy hopping every month on the 10th to see the talent on my team and with other consultants.  
This hop is a continuous hop and if you start here you will go all the way around and get back to here. ENJOY!

My card is a graduation card, folding the cap using a square of paper. 

I used Dakota paper which will be retiring soon, buttercup and outdoor denim cardstock and ink. The shape was cut from the Art of Philosophy Cricut cartridge.  Stamp sets were "4 My Friend and Love Life (stars)  The tassel was bought at Walmart but you can make it from embroidery floss.

Here is a closeup of the cap, the directions are below. Add a comment and have your name entered into a contest.
