I had a request from my mother-in-law and one of her best friends to start a card class for them and to make sure it was for beginners. They are not interested in ordering Stampin' Up! product but LOVE making cards!! The always came to all my events so they could support me and make cards. I told them that I would create a card class for them and make it a beginners class but I needed at least 10 ladies to join. They got to work and got me a couple of their friends and I put out the word about this new class and I am happy to say we have 11 ladies signed up to do this card class once a month for 6 months.
We are going to reevaluate the class after the 6 months to see if we want to continue, change things up or keep it the same. Our first card class met on the second Wednesday of January and everyone just loved the cards and card box we made. I was really stressing about this class because I had to keep the cards very simple but likable. They said everything was awesome!!!
This card was the first card they made and they got to make 2 of them plus they got an envelope for each card. This one uses the Berry Blossoms DSP, Wisteria Wonder, Calypso Coral & Whisper White Card Stock, Wisteria Wonder 3/8" Ruffled Ribbon, 3/4" Circle & Blossom Punches, 2011-2013 In Color Designer Printed Brads and the Perfectly Penned Stamp Set.
For this first card class I ordered enough of the Stampin' Card Keepers from the Holiday Mini (before they were gone) for each lady in class. For this first card class they got to make 2 cards each of 2 designs with envelopes plus the card keeper. The remaining card classes they will get to make 2 cards each of 4 designs with envelopes. I felt they needed a box to keep all their cards in that we will be making and I wanted them to use a Stampin' Up! product. I really wish these keepers would have stuck around!! Everyone loved them and wanted to order more of them!!
I really kept everything simple for them and at the beginning of the class I showed them how to cut a 8 1/2" x 11" piece of card stock into two cards. I also showed them the scoring tool and how to score their cards too. They all loved class and can't wait to come again in February!!
Have a great day!!
