Hostess Club Card

We make a fun and special card when we get together for hostess club. The card and a template, with directions, then goes into a binder. That way, we have a sample and easy directions on how to make that type of card again in the future. This month we will make a shutter card. This card features TAC Hip Hop Fly With It Collection pattern paper, our brand new Copic Caboodles marker collections, and stamps from TAC's Wonder and Joy, Ordinary Greetings, and Bug of Fun.

I have included three views of my shutter card. The first is the card open completely. Isn't the shutter card a nice way to show off great pattern paper?

The second view is the card standing, closed from the front. The shutter folds completely flat and fits in a standard A2 envelope.

The third and last view is a close up on the main image. I colored this adorable boy with TAC's new Copic Color Caboodles markers. I love the new sets that TAC and Copic have teamed up to bring you! I usedColor Caboodles C for the jeans, hat, shirt, hair and bucket. I love the olive greens for the grass, they came from Color Caboodle F. Set A has shades of skin tones that I used to color the face, arms, knee and toes. Notice the jeans, grass and hat. The Copic Color Caboodles come with three shades of four different colors. They are the first Copic sets to include blendable shades of single colors. You need these blendable shades to get the effect you see here.

If you want to know more about the AWESOME new Color Caboodles OR if you are interested in a Color Caboodles Hostess Club, email me or stop in at my Open House on July 24th between 10 am and 1 pm. I will have all the great sets of Color Caboodles available for you to see in person! Want to know one more great thing about the Color Caboodles? There is yummy coordinating card stock available too! YUP! That's right. TAC continues to spend their time to save ours! Making cards just got so much easier!
