Class Description for 15 Holiday Cards in 1 Hour

While I originally designed this class with the intent of making it a paid course, I ultimately couldn’t find a way to host and share it that felt completely right to me. So I am going to make the video tutorial portion free on YouTube and make the workbook a paid extra. I believe you will be able to make the cards without the workbook but you might find it a helpful supplement.

In this class, we will make 15 holiday A2 cards using a cutting template and sketches. You will use 3 pieces of 12×12 paper and have no patterned paper scraps leftover. The template and sketches are exclusive to the class and not available other ways.

I was able to complete all 15 cards in under 1 hour and you will likely be able to complete them in that amount of time as well, although results of one hour are not guaranteed.

The template and the coordinating sketches will also work for other themes and for A6 cards. For other themes, simply choose other paper and embellishments. For A6 cards you will not need to change any measurements, but paper will still be cut with US customary measurements no metric measurements are provided.

The workbook will contain full instructions for completing the projects including pictures as well as the sketches and paper cutting template. There will also be sample photos for reference. You should be able to complete the projects with only the video or only the workbook, but they are designed to compliment each other.
