December Thank You Cards Class with WENDEE

What I'm calling the Step Card will be a very fun, easy card to do. I should win a prize for using the most Sizzix dies and embossing folders on one card !!! I will score the cardstock for you and die cut all of the elements. All you'll need to do is add some Stickles, stamp thanks twice and add some edging color.

The greenish card is hard to see, but the lower part of the card is embossed with the word Thanks in many languages. We'll cut out one of the flowers from the paper and go nuts with Glossy Accents.

The pinkish card is actually an idea from a template that I ordered online, which I won't name because I had so many problems with the template, including getting it in the mail 3 times because of errors on the template. I ended up just making the card on my own, without the template, and will use the templates for large coasters or something. Instead of using the template to cut out the two sized openings, I used a Spellbinder's die.

I hope you'll find time to fit this class into your busy schedule. I planned the class so that you can use these cards to send thank you's to those wonderful friends and family who will be giving you (hopefully) thoughtful and meaningful gifts. Call the store at 364-4141 to sign up. Do so SOON, since I'm so tardy in listing the class.

What you'll need to bring is listed below. If you don't have all of these items, NO PROBLEM, the store has class supplies and everyone in class is always so friendly and willing to share:

red liquid pearls, various snow looking Stickles, Gold Stickles, tape runner, paper cutter, scissors, liquid glue, pop dots, adhesive dots, black and brown ink pads, white pen, ink applicator with foam
