Every month I teach a card class for a group of senior women (like myself).  I usually do two versions of the design and offer choices such as a variety of sentiments.  I make a packet with all the necessary paper supplies and also have good glue (Bearly Art), scissors, clamp tweezers, etc. available.  These are my two cards for May.

I found the background paper at Hobby Lobby, used a "postage stamp" die to give some texture to the patterned paper and put that on some desert storm cs.  Made a little bouquet with a twine bow and added the sentiment.  Done!  Participants will put together the bouquet and also choose their own background paper - there are three each of twenty various sheets in the 6x6 pack.  After each chooses a paper, I will die cut the postage stamp pattern for them (you know how precious patterned paper is:-).  I usually have between 12 and 15 that attend. 

Thanks for stopping by.
