Sweet Citrus Birthday Card Class Projects:

For this class I designed each of the project for all skill levels of crafters. I decided to do a project for each type of crafter. I also shared during the video on how you could step them up as well.

Card #1 Simple & Quick:

For the first card in the class I only used stamps, ink, and paper to make a card designed for the beginner or if you just wanted to make a fun quick card to send out for a birthday.

Card #2: Just a Little Stepped Up:

On the second card in this class I stepped it up just a little bit more by embossing the background panel first and doing a little die cutting. On this version I did a little more stamping than in the video tutorial. I added some of the leaves from the stamp set in Parakeet Party Ink and used the coordinating die to cut them out. I then added them behind the inked and die cut the fruit. On the card I shared in the video I stamped the fruit instead of the leaves and embossed and die cut them. But you can do it either way.

Card #3 Window Card or Shaker Card:

On the last card that I shared in class I mentioned that you could take the window card that we created in class and step it up based on your skill level to create a shaker card with a few additional supplies. I also shared with you in the video on how to use a brayer to ink up the embossed images.
