Who Wants to Visit Central Park?

Welcome to the July Cross Canada Blog Hop where we are highlighting the Central Park paper from the 2017/2018 Idea Book. If you got here from Terry's blog, then you are in the right place, but if you get lost along the way, just head back to Michelle's blog where you will find the complete list of hoppers. 

This month, I started a monthly club at work and decided to start the club with a One Sheet Wonder card class using - what else? - Central Park! This One Sheet Wonder makes 11 cards from one sheet of Central Park and three pieces of cardstock - one White Daisy, one Lemon and one Willow. I used our Nutmeg ink (LOVE that colour!) and went through my stash of stamps to find a few I liked. So here are the cards my club ladies are working on this month. 

Notice the Lemon cardstock. You will see that on some cards it is lighter than others. That is because all of our cardstock is double sided, with one side nice and bright and the other somewhat muted. Same colour, just not as vibrant.

I had a piece of B&T left over when I had finished cutting out the paper so decided to make it into a banner. I also flipped the B&T over for that card, then cut two more banners from the Willow and Lemon cardstock. I think they add a nice little pop to the card since the pink is rather pale. 

If anyone would like the cutting diagram, I will send it to you. I tried to upload it but it wouldn't work...

The exclamation mark on the You're Amazing card was drawn by hand. I wanted one that fit on the White Daisy but all that I have are either too small or way too big. 

The papers for these cards could all be distressed as well, but since this is a lunch time class I wanted them to be as simple as possible. It still ended up taking two lunch times...

That's it for me this month. Continue your journey across Canada with Kristine's blog. Remember, if you find a kink in the road, just head back to Michelle's blog for the full list of hoppers.
