Cards for “HOLLY-DAZE” or Any Days
with Lois Sanderlois_cardmaking2

Your creativity will surface in no time when Lois introduces you to some tried and true, as well as new, card making techniques. You will be: carving your own stamps, taking a label technique to the next level, shown a different kind of “internetting” skill, and will be really blown away when she demonstrates how to use a simple rolling pin to add a much desired professional look to your cards.

In addition to this you will also be shown how to hand letter an elegant mono line “Art Nouveau” alphabet that will beautifully compliment your creations.

You will be working with markers, watercolour pencils and pallets, carving tools and stamp pads to name a few.

Ten cards and envelopes, labels and full use of Lois’ art supplies will be included in the cost of the class. You may wish to bring along an few extra dollars as she will be offering additional items, at cost, that you may wish to purchase to keep you going on your artistic journey.
