Make-n-Take for 7-3-09 Demo

This TAC fun shop had 14 confirmed guests. Two dropped out and three showed up. So I prepared 12 kits for the fun shop. I was so excited that I came up with a great card. (I am not usually this excited about cards I make.) I am still waiting for orders from 2 people so I guess it was a flop but I came away exhilarated knowing that it was the demo I ever gave.

I busily cut out all the card stock for the ladies and all they had to do was paste, stamp, color and USE the Crop-a-dile. I taught them how to use Gamsol with their prismacolor pencils and they wound up being very surprised about the difference the Gamsol made. I gave a little lesson on blending colors but they need practice, as I did when I started. Everyone but the hostess feared the crop-a-dile but loved it after I demoed it and they used it. They did have a blast and asked me if I would do more. I will have to think on that one.

So anyway, the card is called a triangular gate fold card. It was not easy to cut out at first but I got the hang of it and it zipped along. I used cording and glued the ends so they wouldn't fray. The center piece of the flower is a circle punched piece of the triangle paper. The stamp that I used was the sunflower in the set called "Flowers and Holly".
Well, that is all for today unless I get my swap done for "Anything goes".
