May Card Class

My we had fun in May with a birthday theme for our card class. We made a paper cake from wedge shaped boxes. You could put treats in the boxes, like candies, small gifts, anything really. A couple of the class members commented that you could make a whole lot of wedges fro a wedding and send guests home with a slice of wedding cake inside the wedge. What a great idea! We also made little chocolate favours to put on the birthday table. We used Dove chocolates for the favours but let your imagination go wild and add any type you wish to the favour boxes (made form punching out two double petal shapes and adhering three sides together).

And what's a birthday party without birthday cards? This one is made using the Apothecary Art stamp set and matching dies, accordion pleated cardstock, doileys and Stampin' Write markers. We made them is several colours and all of them looked lovely:



It was sure a fun day. Thanks for enjoying it with me, ladies!
