CrafterNoon Cardmaking:  Christmas in July
Join us for the 2nd annual "Christmas in July" CrafterNoon Class! We've been creating one card a month but here is a class devoted to Christmas cards only. We will be making 4 cards that will be easy to reproduce but unique too. Two of the cards will show you how to use those precious Christmas paper scraps you may be hoarding. One card will feature a country Christmas theme with "critters" so if you have a small favorite "critter" stamp you'd like to use, bring it and we will see if we can get it to work on the card, but there will be plenty of critter stamps to choose from. Hope you will join us as we get a jump on the Christmas season. Along with your Basic Kit, please bring watercolor pencils or markers, waterbrush, dimensional adhesive, heat gun, Micron .01 black pen, matte medium, Jet Black Archival ink pad, and, if you have one, a stamp positioner (MISTI).
