      My result for Day 6 displaying the full unfolded card.

      Carole I took your advice on my Day 5 result and erased a portion of the ribbon.  Thank you for that suggestion because it looks so much better.

        I know I skipped a few days/cards, but I hope to go back and at least re-watch the videos. Decided to just do Day 7 today. I liked seeing the process to make an envelope, but I don’t know that I will do that today. I try to design my cards to fit envelopes that either I can buy, or that I have on hand. I used a photo of some flowers and a butterfly from my 2022 garden. Lace was from Jessica Dunn on digitalscrapbook.com.

        Thank you Carole! I learned lots! My problem seems to be remembering what I learned 🙁  I would send this card to you!

          Here is my result for Card 6.

          I have included my card cover alone as well as the complete card.

            I always use Avery templates for my cards: half fold (8.5 by 11) and note cards single fold for the 4.5 by 5.5 cards. The card paper is scored so all I need is a guide to the centers. They were downloaded as PSD files which I saved in a pspimage format. Since I don’t have any pictures of recent grads, I downloaded the gnomes, balloons and papers from Chandahlia.com. The inside bow is a tube recolored. The script font is FrancineHMKbold which the Hallmark Card program loaded into my fonts and also Castellar which I believe came with the computer. I added additional sides to my card to make it fit my template. All the schools that I attended are blue and gold.

              Here is my Card 5.  This time the stork is delivering a different little bundle of fur. I used a different blue ribbon from Digital Scrapbooking and found the Cookie font Carole used on Font Squirrel. I learned so many new tricks like the free option to lift the stork’s wing and the one about placing some of the layers into a group. I am trying to catch up and will hopefully complete the other 2 in the next few days. Thank you Carole, for the great workshop!

                  Anita (#87034), nice touch to showcase Mr Mooch on a card!

                  Susan (#87035), I am glad you gathered all those tips from the tutorials. When I plan them, I typically plan to show one or two tips, but it turns out that I use many other tools or commands that end up as tips for someone discovering them, even though they are “basic” to me. (#87065) Although it might be “uncomfortable” to work with nodes, one good thing about it is that you can move and adjust them over and over again without having to start over. It needs practice.

                  Sheila (#87040), I think that the interlacing technique is better and less work than using the Eraser tool, as I have seen in various tutorials! (#87087), I suspected that not everyone would need an envelope but I had seen the question before so I figured it could be useful to at least some.

                  Monique (#87041), great choice of photo! What type of card would it be? (#87060) The colors are so subtle and matching that bouquet! Great choice.

                  Kasany (#87045), do you know that if you use that font with a different color, you can “paint behind” the snow caps, just like I did for the cupcakes?

                  Jnet (#87043), that is a nice bow to add to the card! (#87070), in order to print correctly, you would have to place the text inside on the top left quadrant AND rotate it 180 degrees, otherwise, your text will be really hard to read for the recipient.

                  Corrie (#87054), thank you for your kind words. I love how the little ornaments on the back of the card make a perfect match to the front.

                  Suzy (#87056), what do you not like about the card? I find it lovely. What does the text mean?

                  Louyse (#87059), is that you in the photo?

                  Anne (#87064), that looks about like my car right now. Unfortunately, it is dark at this time so hopefully, I’ll get a chance to take a pic in the morning! We just got a “surprise” dump as it snowed all day!

                  Bill (#87066), are you having issues placing the guides precisely or is that something else that is problematic?

                  Trish (#87079), making envelopes is not as hard as it seems, but since it is the very first, everything is new. But at times, they can make something totally original when needed. As for 2023, please, use it and then, drop me an email with your “issues” 🙂 (#87090) Great use of the photo on a card.

                  Bonnie (#87083), give that envelope a try! That pickleball card is so cute! Where did you get such graphics? (#87084) Where else would someone find so many pickleball cards now?

                  James (#87085), great idea to have the school logo included. I am glad you enjoyed the workshop.

                  Linda (#87097), you can come back to those tutorials and do the other cards in the next week or so. They will be available until the end of the month (except for DIAMOND members).

                  Lois (#87088), that is a cute image you found!

                  Donna (#87102), that is a cute gnome! That is perfect when you don’t have a photo! It sure will put a smile on a recipient’s face.

                    Thank you Carole for this beautiful workshop. I did not make the envelope because I lack of time. I want to watch the last day of the boxing day. I will come back tomorrow to see the last cards added.

                      Just getting started on Card 6 and 7 but I had to say how great everyone’s work is. You are truly an inspiration!

                        quote;
                        Lyn (#86997), you tweaked the template with circles instead of squares behind the flowers. Amazing how a little tweak makes a card look so different.

                        Thank you 🙂
                        It  took me a while ensuring it was lined up, then I forgot to add the border you had put in the design, and added the outside edge one without a second thought! It was when I posted it I noticed I had forgotten that….I prefer your border, it looks better.

                        At the start of the week I thought I had a free week to get this all done, but it has turned out to be busier than I thought, so not had much time to keep up with this. I want to try and complete it, not sure how much time I will get to do so this week.

                          I haven’t had a chance to participate in this workshop, but I downloaded everything so I can do it at a later date.

                          It’s been delightful looking at everyone’s results. Your personalities come through along with your creativity and I love it!

                            Carole, most of the pickleball graphics come from cleanpng…especially the balls and paddles.

                              Card #6 is finally done! My hold-up was deciding what the theme would be. So, here’s a digital Happy Thanksgiving for my friends and family. I struggled with the warp brush to straighten the ribbon. Need more practice! I created the brad with using some clipart over an existing brad. The title font is Lucinda Calligraphy. The word art in the oval was from a Thanksgiving kit. The background paper is from ps-jessica-dunn-naturally-curious-nature-paper.

                              Carole: When I trid to upload an image with this post I get a 404 error that says the transaction is potentially unsafe.

                                  My card 7. I used some free elements. I didn’t find free snowflake.  It’d look fine here.

                                    It’s hard to choose which card to comment on because they’re all great!

                                    Thank you Carole for seeing my mistake on the text. I had made a mini template though lolll. I edited my original post hoping it would go through but I guess it didn’t…. sorry for giving you extra work.

                                      Carole, my card #87041 will be some kind of encouragement or comfort card. I loved the saying when I saw it on the internet.

                                        Day 7.  I  did two.  I took the photo of the grackle yesterday. I was away yesterday, having fun in the snow on a bird count.   Doing them this morning, and now posting them.

                                        I’ve created a  snowflake frame using a brush, which I  will post  in the file section on facebook.  Perhaps, for those that are not on FB, Carole can  place  a link to it on here.  It’s a png file.

                                        I used one of Carole’s crochet tubes to create the frame.  I’m not a big fan of a stark white background.  I do like the look and feel of vintage paper, so I used a small texture, and  a hint of grey.

                                        Thank you Carole for this  superb workshop.  The templates are what I love, simple, and minimalistic, as so many of you will know, that I’m very much a  non  frilly, busy page creator.

                                          Next year will be our 55th wedding anniversary. The stone is emerald created with Filter Forge. I scanned the picture from our wedding album (June 8, 1968). The lace is my own which I scanned some time ago. The hearts are from Chandahlia and the fonts are from deeezy.com.: Broadway Engraved and Gomuno Bubble. I used layer styles for both fonts.

                                            Card 7 – A Thank You to Carole/Cassel for this wonderful workshop. Lots to learn and lots of fun. Thanks a bunch! 😉

                                            I used the script cass-ribbon factory C to make the gradient ribbon. I added a strip with the wet leaves texture on top of the ribbon. The font is Lucinda Calligraphy. The illustration is from nicepng.

                                              Sue, those frames are beautiful and look so real.  I’ve never been lucky enough to see a grackle in real life, what a stunner!  I agree about the white background.  I did put a texture on one white one then left two cards with white and it bothers me to look at those two.  I feel like I didnt finish them, and will probably go back and change the background.

                                                Thank you Susan.  I have all of Carole’s crochet tubes, corner and edge punches.  They are worth every penny.  I really do use them all a great deal.

                                                As for the Grackle, a few will stay all winter, providing there are plenty of berries.  I’d sooner see them all migrate, same goes for the  Robin.  This one is a male.  I have  dozens of them nesting out in the trees each year.  They are so noisy.  Head over to FB to get the png  lace  frame I added to the  file section.

                                                    Here is my day 7–I used the lace ribbon but opened a gold paper and flood filled it with that.  The Picture is one I downloaded several years ago and I can’t find the link.

                                                        My last entry for this workshop. I made the envelope and put my card in it. I saved the outline of the envelope in case I want to print it on a later date.

                                                        I haven’t commented on all the individual cards made; there were simply too much but they all were lovely in their own right and it was a pleasure to see them all.

                                                            Corrie, your last entry is lovely.  I’ve done the same with regards to the envelope template.  Although I’m unlikely to  print it off.

                                                            I agree, the   huge number of entries submitted are in a word  ‘phenomenal’

                                                              I’ve learned so much during this workshop.  Thanks so much for it.  The only question I have is “locking the transparency”. I see what I do to lock and unlock the transparency but what is it that I’m actually doing?  What does it mean to lock the transparency?

                                                              Thanks so much

                                                                Card 6, I think I missed card 5, I will have to go back. Health still not good, so dragging the chain a bit.
