August Class--Backgrounds You Didn't Know You Could Do

This class will be so much fun. Backgrounds can make or break a card. I have done three for this class that will make the card. The first is the Waxed Paper technique. Very simple and no 2 cards are ever the same.
Shadowing is a technique I picked up in High School and really didn't use it till college but it can be done in so many different ways and so many different effects can be achieved. I have done a very simple design here. I just love it.
Clouds are so cool and it this card the clouds make it. So easy to do. I updated the idea by using the Big Shot Oval Scallop. The scallop edges really take the clouds to a new dimension.

Michelle and Tara's Birthday Card

This card I made for my friend and upline in New York, Michelle and my darling niece Tara. Michelle's birthday is August 18 and Tara's is August 22. This card is simple yet elegant. Really love the way it turned out.
