About This Class


Making handmade greeting cards is so rewarding.  The recipient will appreciate the time you put into creating the card, and using low cost supplies, saves you money instead of purchasing a card at the store.  You can customize these cards to the recipients likes or even color schemes.   In this class, you will learn how to make 5 different Thank You cards. I make these classes easy to follow and without having to have a whole shop of tools.  Using a simple trimmer, pair of scissors, your favorite adhesive, card bases and corresponding colored and/or patterned paper.  Additional supplies you need for this class:  ink pads and stamps, flowers, buttons, 3-D adhesive dots and Glue Dots.. You can find card bases at your local craft store and even the big box grocery/department stores.  Colored paper is best when using cardstock, as it is a heavier paper to work with.
