Simple Greeting Cards for Make and Take

I mentioned yesterday that at my paying job today I was going to have a make and take for about 14 people.  It was so neat to share this with my co-workers.  They have all complimented my cards and crafts, and I appreciate that very much, but to share with them how to make the cards and watch them enjoying themselves while many stamped for the first time was very neat.

Here are the two cards they made.  To their surprise, the wedding cake card was the simpler of the two.

I had all the parts cut to size, so they stamped and assembled.  I think I may have some new stampers eager to learn more!  I love being an enabler!

Here are some more detailed photos of the cards.
 The base of this card is River Rock, with Black embossed in a Cuttlebug Paisley embossing folder.  The cake is stamped on Whisper White, in Stazon, and the pearls are a strip cut to length and adhered to the last "layer" of the cake.

 The stamp set is from Stampin Up! and is called:  Sweet Treats

 This was the more difficult of the cards because of having more layers and ribbon to tie.
 They used pop-dots for the sentiment.
The white folded piece is mounted onto the black base.

This stamp set is also by Stampin Up! and is called Cheery Chat.

One last look at each card.

Thanks for looking!
