I had some VERY exciting news on Monday. Was going thru my emails and found one telling me I had won a spot in the latest online card class, starting the next day!!! I was so happy as I'm loving the creation of CAS cards and this would teach me so much.
Unfortunately it has also been a VERY busy week, so I'm very behind with the class. The emails turn up around 1am (because I'm in New Zealand) and I haven't had a chance to look at Day 3 so far today. Will have to wait till tonight.
The first lessons included learning to 'inlay die-cuts', which I've seen many people do but didn't know where to start. As you know I don't own many dies, so had to come up with a design that would work with the lesson.
It was quite a disaster for me as I lost a tiny piece from right in the middle (of the first 'L') and I seem to have little gaps around the edges of the rectangles. I will definitely try it again and at least know what to do next time, so I don't have pieces that are 'nearly invisible' to piece back in.
I don't have access to any good cardstock at the moment either (this is just from a local stationary store) so it tends to tear and buckle. Will have to see if I can improve my stock!!
Day 2 gave more examples of these types of cards, which look amazing. They also covered doing 'faux metal', which looked really cool but I don't have any way to re-create that one.
So, I'm pretty happy with the card (if I don't look closely) and will do some more creating tonight when I look at the next lessons (if I don't fall asleep first!!).
