About This Class

Ready to continue learning to Design on the Go with the iPad Pro? Welcome to our mini class - Create a Holiday Card!

In this class, I will you show you how to create a Holiday Greeting Card just in time for the holidays. We will go over choosing the card style, the different standard sizes and your envelope choices. Then I'll show you some layout inspiration to spark your design ideas and finish up with walking you through how to print from home or how to pick a professional printer (local or USA based.) 

This class is also packed with lots of extra goodies: templates for folded and flat cards in every style as well as a resource guide with places to get your cards printed, links to lots of items I talk about in the class as well as useful terminology!

We will be using the app Graphic which is a full featured graphic design and illustration app. If you are not familiar with this program, I teach a class series (links below) Graphic 101-104 that will walk you through this awesome app!

Hey Hey: New mini classes coming soon!! Stay tuned!! Like Create a Holiday Photo Card Coming Out Tomorrow!
