Embossing Folder Technique - May Class

In my newsletter I promised you a few fun techniques, and some new products from the Summer Mini catalog.  Here you go - with this card I'll deliver both!  

We'll use the new embossing folder Flower Garden and a brayer to get this fantastic effect.  The Beyond the Garden paper matches perfectly, as does the Daffodil Delight taffeta ribbon.  If you'd like to buy these products so you can make this card yourself, let me know.  Or if you'd just like to make the card, come to my class on the 28th!  

I made this as a bright and cheerful "get well" card, but of course you can change the sentiment and use it for any occasion.  This is how I finished off the inside of the card.  
Here I am also including my first attempt, a get well card which ended up looking so sad and funereal that it clearly became another condolence card.  Since I already had a condolence card for this class, I had to change the colors and liven it up.  

It's the same embossing folder technique, and even the same Thoughts and Prayers stamp set, but the colors and the word choice make all the difference.  (The curved sentiment shape is another quick and fun technique I'll have to show you in another class.  Hint: it uses the Decorative Label Punch!)  

Come to my class on May 28th at my house to make the cheerful version of this flower card, plus 5 other cards!  Please RSVP by the 19th so I can prepare your supplies.  I'll see you then!
