I have always loved the simple elegance of a Clean and Simple (CAS) card, but felt the need to add more layers and embellishments for the longest time. Many of the cards we made decades ago were hour-long processes, much like the Touches of Texture card SHOWN HERE last month.

While I still love making those cards for special occassions or to showcase just one example of a stamp set's versatility, my love of handwritten cards and letters got the best of me and I wanted to return to the CAS card that I POSTED HERE quite a while ago.

A One Layer Card (OLC) wasn't enough for me, but I found that when I created a three-dimensional grouping of elements on top of a stamped background, suddenly I was creating some thing that was versatile on A2 cards, Note Cards, Love Notes (3×3 cards), and gift tags.

I named the technique a Card Corsage. Just like a beautiful corsage on an elegant and solid colored dress, it made the outfit elegant instead of plain! You can find THIS CARD posted earlier.

I'm teaching this proven method in live classes in the Austin, Texas area through a four-class series. During each class you will finish and go home with 4 cards and envelopes ready to mail. By the end of the course you will have finished 16 cards and envelopes and re-trained yourself to make more than just one card at a time. You'll need to STORE YOUR CARDS LIKE ME!!!

Use this Punch Organizer to organize your cards! 12 slots for the months, and three narrow slots for your gift tags.
