Croppertunities, July 15, 6:30PM

I'm teaching a card class at our local scrapbook store.  My husband's nephew and niece just bought it!  Not many rubberstampers in this group, so I'm starting with some basic cards.....I have already taught one class (Father's Day) at this store and we had a great time.  So, I'm looking forward to teaching there again.                                INSTRUCTIONS:  Fold an 8 1/2" X 5 1/2" piece of decorative, double-sided cardstock in half.  Use a green inkpad to edge the entiere card.  Use clear Stickles to outline all the black flowers and set aside to dry.  Punch out a 2" flower from a scrap of yellow cardstock.  Use a black inkpad to stamp the bird image in the certer of the yellow flowers.  Outline the flower with clear Stickles.  Using the reverse side, cut a 1 1/2"X 1 1/2" square and stamp the sentiment with black inkpad; trim the corners with the rounded corner punch.  Edge the square with green inkpad.  After the Stickles is dry on the flower, use a craft knife to cut 5/8" slits at the top and bottom of the flower.  Cut a 1/2" blue gingham ribbon 6" long.  Slide the ribbon through the back of the flower ribbon slide.  Use a tackly glue to attach the ends of the ribbon to the inside of the card; let dry completely before closing the card.  Add a clear jewel to the little red flower in the lower right-hand corner and to the tiny black flower on the left side of the card at the top.


  1. I hope your nephew and niece have a great business venture! It's not easy in this economy.

  3. You're absolutely right, Sara. Jo has already impressed me with her "people skills" and how she is reaching out to the business community here. She has some really great ideas for promoting this business....not only her shop, but those in this area.
