Announcing "Dancing into Spring" Card Class and Tutorial

Hello Dear Bloggers!
I have Spring Fever!  Even though today is a rainy day,   it's clear that Spring will soon be here in all it's beautiful glory!  And to celebrate Spring's arrival, I have designed two cards sure to please that special friend on her birthday, or maybe your Mom on Mother's Day!
These cards are made with two Prima paper lines, Fairy Belle, and Divine.  I fussy cut paper, and used pearl and gemstone embellishments along with lace to make these magical cards.
You may enroll in a class to learn how to make these beauties at Ink Paper Rubber, in Overland Park, Kansas, OR, take my tutorial which will post here on the blog May 16th.
If there is enough interest, I may put together some card kits.
If you are interested in the class or a kit, please contact Jen at Ink Paper Rubber at (913)-381-2217.  Cost is $18.
I made two similar versions of each card to show you subtle differences you can make with just a few changes.  The captions below will illustrate what I did and how I did it.  Enjoy!

This is Fairy Belle, card #1, View A.  
Card #1 has white paper lace which has been fussy-cut from the same piece of paper as the image of the girl.  So only one piece of paper was needed for this card.  I also attached a butterfly to the image to give it a three dimensional effect.  Pearls and gemstones were added to the dress, to give her texture and richness.
I used a Jelly Roll holographic pen to highlight the Fairy wings and other points of interest.
The pink and blue flowers highlight the blue flowers of the paper.
The pink daisy trim frames the image and gives it a soft playful look!

Card #1 View B.
The only difference here is that I used larger pearls on the dress, and clear bubble stones were used on the white lace, which reflected the pink color in the card.  I also used a different color scheme for the flower embellishments.  A purple rose was chosen to pick up the purple in the card.  
This is Divine Diva, Card #2 View A. 
Pearls and gems were adhered to the paper to highlight the image.
I fussy cut the bird and the foliage, and adhered with pop dots.
To show movement, gemstone swirls were adhered to the card under the bird cage and under her slipper.  Pearls, lace and a lavender ribbon completed the look. 
Close up.
Card #2 View B.
The birdcage was positioned at an angle to show even more movement.  The gemstones were put below both slippers and under the birdcage.  The lavender bow was omitted and instead I added corner embellishments.
If you would like to make some of these cards, contact Jen at Ink Paper Rubber at the number above.
And as always, leave a comment!  I love to hear from you and enjoy your comments!
