Faux Tooled Leather Class

Yes, I'm still around. I've just been very busy and haven't had any time for stamping. A four-day weekend was just the ticket!! I woke up this morning with a burst of inspiration to make this card using the faux tooled leather and faux burnt edges techniques. Love them both and they work so well together. I'm lovin' all the cute variations I've been seeing for easel cards and decided to incorporate one of them into this card, too. The whole thing folds down flat in a 4 1/4" it!! I decided that the dad who gets this would love a masculine book mark to match, and so here it is...
It measures 4" x 1 1/2" and has a fold at the top. Hidden inside are a couple pieces of magnets saved from the advertisement that comes on the front of our local phone books each year. Every year I collect them from work and friends and I've found lots of ways to use them. Love being able to recycle those freebies that would normally end up in the trash!
I'll be teaching a class on how to make these two cuties at the LSS (Priceless Scrapbooks) in a couple of weeks. If your local, why don't you give them a call and sign up for the class? The link is in the far right sidebar. Here's a picture of the two pieces together.
I won't be absent as long this time. I actually got several cards made today besides this one. Unfortunately, two of them are sympathy cards for my dear friends, who are sisters, whose father passed away over the weekend.
Only two more short weeks and the summer vacation will begin....YAY!!!!
