This summer delight the special people in your life with fun and whimsical handmade cards. Stamps, ink, and paper make simple, sophisticated, and most-needed cards that say happy birthday, thank you, and words of love. Create two different backgrounds using the stamp set and augment the cards with premium pattern paper. Attention will also be given to card construction (at least one fancy fold), sentiments, and a bit of masking. Beginners and experienced card makers are welcome.  

Most card-making supplies are provided (a supply fee of $30 is included in the workshop price) including a generous assortment of premium cardstock paper, stamps, stamp block, inkpads, gems, envelopes, and other embellishments to craft at least 12 cards. Supplies will be mailed to the address on file one week prior to the start of class. If supplies should be mailed to a different address, please email us at Please see supply list for additional materials.
