Today's cards use, once again, the Tapestry of Life technique. For directions click here. Thank you for all the compliments received on this technique. I didn't realize how many stampers would love this technique, and was humbled by the numerous comments left on message boards where I posted my cards. These two cards were made as templates for a card class I will be teaching. In this first card, I used Cool Carribbean in the background, and paired Magnolia patterned paper and a cranberry colour cardstock. Tapestry background was made using Adirondack's Stream and Cranberry. Ribbon and brads were added to embellish the card. Stamped on the tapestry is a new stamp from Hero Arts. It was stamped in ColorBox Frost White and heat embossed with Ranger's Seafoam White. The verse, "in everything give Thanks", was stamped directly on tapestry.

This second card is layered using Basic Grey, Hunter Green and Gold. Tapestry was made using Hunter Green and Cranberry Crisp. "Dreams come a size too big so we can grow into them" was stamped on pink paper, matted, and placed over the image with pop up dots. Ribbon was the only embellishment added to this card.

Now, for your advice. Which card do you think I should teach? Thank you for your help.
