"Made for a Man" Class

I got the "All Holidays" stamp set today and decided that with Father's Day coming up, it was time to do a class with a more masculine feel. That kind of thing is usually hard for me, but I found an incredible card to copy. It was designed by a stamper named Lorri Heiling--you can see the original post on her blog here. It looks just like a wallet! Here is my version (very similar to hers, of course) And, before you go thinking I sewed on this, I used a technique called faux stitching. Pierce a few holes, connect with gel pen, and voila!
I'll show you the inside in a minute. I thought these would also be good for graduates or men's birthdays, so you could do the front like this instead to adapt it:
And here is the inside. You could put gift cards, money, a note, school pictures, etc. in the little pockets. Too cool!
Here is the second card that will be available at the class. I love these jumbo brads by Stampin' Up. And with my new Crop-a-Dile, they are soooo easy to put on. This card is made using the Western Sky Designer Series Paper--it has a nice masculine, western feel to it. I designed it to be a birthday card, but you could always stamp a different sentiment on it (you can choose at the class).

Here are the details:

DATE: May 30th, Friday, at 7:00 (can't make it then? Just let me know!)

COST: Men's Billfold $3.50, Birthday card $2.00 (You choose which card and how many you would like to make.

Please RSVP so that I can be sure to have enough supplies on hand. Once again, I will also offer a $5 discount on any order of $25 or more to those that participate in the class.
