No Cricut (GASP!) Creations

I know, this is very shocking!  It has been a LONG time since I've made a project that didn't involve the Cricut.  Well, I teach primarily Cricut classes at my local Joann, and I have been asked to start teaching basic card classes that don't use the Cricut.  After much pondering, I decided for my first class I would teach the accordion flower technique.  I also thought I would challenge myself and make all the cards from the same DCWV stack, which in this case is the Nana's Kids Stack.  If you have been to my blog before you'll notice these are a lot simpler than what I usually make, but that's because I'm gearing them towards beginner to intermediate crafters.  That said, I'm really happy with how they turned out!  I guess I should also confess that I didn't exactly stick to the stack (as it were).  I did have to use white cardstock, one sheet of violet cardstock, and one sheet of red.  I was pretty close though!  ;-)

Paper:  DCWV Nana's Kids Stack, Core-dinations (violet), AC Cardstock
Embossing:  Cuttlebug D'vine Swirl
Embellishments:  DCWV (buttons), Offray (ribbon), Fiskars (edge punch)
