I teach a monthly papercraft class at a nearby Assisted Living facility. The usual attendance is anywhere from 5 to 10 ladies of varying ages and capabilities. Mostly we make cards, but sometimes I will do a different project with them. I usually don't use patterned CTMH paper but rely heavily on our stamps and cardstock. In September we made a 'friend' card and two Christmas cards. Here are pictures of our September cards.
The ladies liked the bright green color. It matched CTMH Pear so it was easy to be matchy-matchy. The flower and flowing banner are from the CTMH Art Philosophy cartridge.
This card uses one of CTMH's new M size stamps. The belt buckle is an Art Philosophy cut.
I CASE's this card from one that used Washi tape for the branches, but I substituted a thinner strip of patterned paper. It was non-CTMH and was very thin and easy for my ladies to tear. The gold starburst for the top of the tree is yet another CTMH Art Philosophy cut.
I am so pleased with my ladies. Even though I do all the more difficult parts of whatever project I pick, they can still manage to make it their own. In a few days I will post October's projects so stay tuned.
