Introductory 8 card workshop

I am offering an Introductory 8 card workshop.  It features 4 styles and you do 2 of each style.  These 4 cards are from Make if From Your Heart Vol 2.  This How To Program has both scrapbook pages and card sketches that are just super.  You can find it on my website under Shop and then How To Programs.
Here are the 4 styles:
This is Card 2.  There are many ways you can make this card fit any of your needs and occasions.

Card 2a - this has the banner from Close To My Heart Cricut cartridge Artiste and the circles are cut from Art Philosophy.  The stamps are C1619 So Many Smiles and B1449 Oodles of Doodles.

Card 2b used D1627 Your Own Kind of Wonderful and the ShinHan markers to color the butterflies.

This is Card 3.  Again this style can be changed to use so many different techniques.

Card 3a uses D1663 Floral Banners.  I cut this banner as the stamp set has a 2 step banner and changed the square to a triangle.

This is Card 3b. The Close To My Heart Artiste Cartridge has the banner.  You may not see it but 3 of the little butterflies have Itty Bitty sparkles on their antenna.  Stamps sets: D1646 Finding the Words (this is such a versitile stamp for all occasions) D1663 Floral Banners

This is the blank Card 4.   You can actually emboss on the white card if you like for a background texture look.

This is 4a.  It can be for anyone.  I have shown the 3 Princesses below the card.  I used the ShinHan markers again as well as a background heart stamp from D1668 Charming Cascade.  The other stamps used or could be used: C1631 Birthday Princess, A1180 Safari Ballet, and B1486 Darling Dinos.

This is Card 4b.  the banner comes from the CTMH Cricut cartridge Artistry and uses D1680 Life is Sweet that comes with the Artistry cartridge set.  You can use a black marker to help set off the card.

This is Card 1.

This is Card 1a.  It uses Washi tape.  You could also use Shimmer Trim.  The stampsets used are: A1170 Doodle Design.  You can put a number of sayings on the inside of the circle.  M1053 Sweeter with you or M1123 Feel Better.  I used the embossing folder of hearts using sand paper to see the hearts.  I would either use a smaller design or place the paper differently in the embossing folder because you really can't see the hearts well.

This is Card 1b.  I used the ShinHan markers again and have offset the square.  I used Z2013 silver Assortment sequins but you could also use the gems.

On all the cards I used The thin 3D foam tape.  I don't make things "stand out" too much because it requires special postage to be added otherwise your card will be chewed up in the post office machines.  If you are in doubt, take a card in an envelope to your local post office.  They have a slot that is about 1/4 inch and if the card fits through it, it will go well.  If not, you need to add postage to your card before mailing.
