Clean and Simple Card Class Week 2 Lesson #1

Happy Tuesday,
So how's it going?  Did anyone get some crafting in yesterday.  I was able to complete my lesson #1 for my card class, and start on a layout. I have to start my valentine's day cards.  I haven't started anything yet.  I have an idea for Jack's class Valentines.  I just have to get working on them!  Have you started yet?


Lesson #1-Simple Embellishments
The concept was to make your own clean and simple embellishment.  I knew exactly what I wanted to do! I made my own embellishment using my paper try ink butterfly dies, some paper trey ink felt and some jillibean soup!

A close up of the 3D butterfly.
I love how the layered pieces look.  To attach all the layers I simple used my sewing machine. 

supplies
paper, die cut-jillibean soup
die, felt-paper trey ink
tools-sewing machine, ek success border punch

I hope you have a great day.  Thanks so much for stopping by.  I will be back tomorrow with lesson #2 (hopefully!).  See you then!
Have a crafty day!
