74- Scratch and Sniff Drink Card

This card was demoed at the conference I went to and I knew I'd have to repeat it. We did this week at my tart and tangy class. It is actually really simple to do but sooo much fun!! The cup is just vellum and the ink is put on with a brayer. Then there is the scratch and sniff- which is just 1 part juice powder (non-sugar) and 1 part clear embossing powder. So much fun!!

73- Tart and Tangy Flap Card

This is one of the cards I demoed in my tart and tangy class this week. I wanted to make a card with everyone that has a different shape than what people normally do. The flap card is perfect- it's super easy to do and gives a different effect. Plus it's a perfect card to put a gift card in.
