Last Saturday was a busy stampin’ class day, 4 classes throughout the day 3D projects, scrapbooking, gifts, albums and an extreme cards class !
So what exactly is an extreme card? These cards are not difficult, but time consuming, lots of layers, stamping techniques, embossing, cutting out, ribbons, crochet trim and the finished cards certainly needed an extra large stamp to post them, or even a box!
This is one of the cards, inspired by my recent trip to Paris ! There are so many components to the card and lots of embossing and distressing too.
The inside is decorated too, it’s really important to make sure you have enough weight at the back of the card so it doesn’t fall over! Stampin’ Up! doesn’t sell C5 evelopes but these manilla ones are perfect and the stamping looks great on them too!
The second card I will share with you was inspired by one of my favourite bloggers Teneale Williams, she is a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator in Australia. You can find her website here, I have put direct links to the cards under each picture. Her cards are amazing, such attention to detail, I warn you now you will spend a long time looking at her site !!!!
The front of the card was based on this one here.
The inside of the card was based on this one here.
