RAK and Instructions

I received the best RAK yesterday. Teri, Big Ideas from a Little Girl, sent me a package. She did a stamp camp that was 50 cards for the Holidays. She used one of the Scrappin' Kits, some Wasabi ribbon, and Whisper White cs to make 50 holiday cards. I loved the idea!! So she was kind enough to send me her instructions, and a CD with a picture of EVERY card. Isn't she the SWEETEST thing ever? She also included this card just for me. Isn't it cute?

I said before that I was going to try to do a tutorial for this card. Then I gave you the link to Beate's tutorial. She does the best tutorials. Well I decided to post the instructions for my class. Hope these help some.

Hey Corie! Glad you received my package! Let me know how you like the cards. Mine you, they are all simple cards and at first glance, they might be a little plain for some of us gals who like to keep adding stuff on our cards, but it grew on me and now I love the cards! XOXO to you! Teri
