Card day

Welcome to post 501.  Today I volunteered at a local community group card making class.  Here are the cards I designed for them to make.   
Flowers are made with roughly cut out circles in tissue paper.  I have used a stamp for the stem and leaves however you could easily free hand draw these.  The white spots are acrylic paint dotted on with a toothpick.  There is a greeting inside.
This is a colour blocked front with a flower and leaves created from dies.  Most of the ladies had never made this type of flower.  The greeting is tucked in under the flower.  Inside there are two simple strips of paper at bottom - that could also be used to tuck a little gift card or money if they wanted to.
This card is the easiest make - it works best with printed cardstock as the base.   The heart (or whatever shape you want) is punched out and greeting applied.  The punched out shape - in this case the heart is applied inside the card and a piece of white paper attached for the greeting, thus. A good card for charity making and I will make a few more to donate this week.
Thank you for looking, have a great weekend - here in Australia it is Mother's Day on Sunday - to all mothers, grandmothers, great grandmothers and guardians enjoy the day and remember those who cannot be with you today.   Margaret
