Holiday Card Making Class for November 22: Two Types of Embossing

Hello and welcome!

I want to invite you to a holiday card making class at the Joann's craft store in Anchorage, Alaska next Sunday, November 22nd from 2:30-4:30 pm! It's the start of card classes I'll be teaching at Joann's for the next three months!

Dry embossed cards
I'm starting off simply with showing two types of embossing... the first is dry embossing (above). I have a lot of holiday embossing folders for you to use if you don't own any yourself! It's fun to "dress up" the embossing with die cuts, Stickles, sentiments, ribbon, and a holiday sentiment finishes it in just your style! 

Heat embossed cards

The other type of embossing is called heat embossing. It is where you use a sticky ink on a stamped image and cover it in embossing powder to be melted with a heat "gun" or tool. The different types of embossing powders can be colored, clear, white,  black, metallic, glittery, etc., and gives you many different opportunities to create unique cards! You can heat emboss the whole card as on the right, just a background (middle card) or just the sentiment (card on the left although hard to see). 

These are two types of techniques you can do to cards to give them a WOW factor! 

Please come join me for this fun class! Call the Joann's store in Anchorage at (907) 277-3620. The cost is $30. Bring supplies that you have (card stock, stamps, embossing folders, ink for embossing, ink for sentiments, embellishments) and what you don't have I may have or you can purchase there!

Thanks for stopping by and God bless!
