Here's the Faux Silk Technique again. I love the texture using this technique. You can view below the card components I used to make this card.
Thanks for visiting with me today!

This card is for two challenges. One is for SCS which is TLC266. For this challenge you're supposed to decorate the inside and the outside of your card.
Card Sketch 57 is for card patterns where you're to follow the photo. You can change the orientation like I did, too.
I used two stamp sets. The one on the front is from the Abundant Hope set in the Occasions Mini. I thought this was a good set not only for Easter but also for a sympathy card. This set is only available for another month and then the new mini catalogs come out. Yippee!
I stamped "With Sympathy" in the lower left-hand corner of the card using the Teeny Tiny Wishes set. This set has everything you could possibly want to say in it. It may seem expensive to buy one set like this, but when you figure it out, it's less than $2 a stamp. You basically don't need another sentiment set if you have this one. I use it all the time.
Hope you like.
Here's the inside of my card below. I've used the Thoughts and Prayers stamp set. This set is wonderful if someone is not feeling well or it's a sympathy card you need. The stamp inside says "Sending thoughts of love and praying for the Lord to sustain you with bright and restful days."
Here's the card sketch that I followed. I just turned it on the upside.
How cute is this calendar for a teacher or a gift to someone special. We'll be making a coordinating gift box to go with this calendar. How beautiful. This project was done using the easel card technique. I just made my dimensions bigger. This class is on November 23, 2009, just in time for the holidays. You can pick your time of 10 a.m. or 7 p.m. Also let me know what color you would like to make your project in: Ruby Red, Mellow Moss, or Night of Navy.
Here's the pretty gift box you'll be making for your calendar.
Here's all the cards you'll be making. All you do is insert each month as you go. We'll be stamping each month with all different sets, some retired, some not. There's also a few techniques thrown in there, too.
Lastly, what are you going to do once the year is through with this beautiful card? Well, at the end of December you'll be turning that card over and adding a special picture. You then can leave it on your desk. How cool is that? Love it.
Did you notice, too, on the card is a poem about the four seasons by Tammy White, just to keep in the spirit for the year.
Thanks for stopping by. I hope to see you in this class. You won't want to miss this. Check under my "Classes" tab for details, and E-mail me
