Lightweight magnet, Adorning Accents Edgelits, 1 ¾ Circle Punch, Large Scallop Punch

Step 1: Take the 3 ½ x 11 c/s and trim one of the short ends, by making it rounded. I used the Adorning Accents Edgelits. 
Step 2:  Score CS at 4 ¼ & 8 ½ 
Step 3:  Fold at scores & adhere DS paper to lower flap.
Step 4: Decorate card as you wish.
Step 5: Adhere round piece, layer & fasten to card with 2 dimensions on the top half only.
Step 6: Adhere magnetic closures to the back of main image, and the inside base of the card. 

And because it was our anniversary class, we have been meeting monthly for the last year!  To celebrate, I made each of my ladies this cute little bulletin board.

The cork measured 6x6, Gumball Green Layer 7x7 and the Early Expresso Layer 7 1/4 x 7 1/4. For the Notes Layer on top I used Cherry Cobbler cardstock and Orchard Harvest Designer Series Paper. I used the Stampin' Up Twine and threaded that through the big button, fastened to the Dotted Gumball Green Grosgrain Ribbon with a glue dot; and to top it off I glued the buttons to the thumbtacks using Super Glue.  
They turned out pretty cute!

The December class will be Monday, December 10 at the Apple Valley Restaurant Banquet Room. The December Technique will be Glammering Glimmer and you are just going to LOVE the cards that I have thought up for this class!  

As always, take care and Happy Thanksgiving!

Gorgeous cards once again, Cindy! Thanks for sharing on your blog. I am sorry that I can't get to your classes and I appreciate that card instructions are available online.

On the first faux patina card, which ink color did you put on the embossing folder?

Happy Thanksgiving to you and Jim!
