Using a range of exciting techniques and materials we will create unique and stylish cards for the festive season.
Handmade Christmas Cards That Sparkle!
To say that your Christmas cards this year will be’ unique’ is an understatement! Inspired by my love of mixed media techniques I will be showing you how to create fabulous handmade christmas cards that will keep your friends and family guessing.
So what’s in store?
You will be introduced to Angelina fibre, a super soft fiber that has been produced in such a way that just a tiny amount used in your projects will result in a highly iridescent sparkling effect. We will be layering, trapping, and heat bonding this on a felt base to add excitement.
We will be embossing ( creating a raised design) mini metal Christmas trees and colouring them with vibrant alcohol inks.
You will be discovering how to use transfer foils to add shine and depth, then creating mini tiles as a background for your mini metal embellishments.
Materials are provided and includes cards and envelopes. If you have any interesting yarns, fibres, sequins or sparkly bits at home feel free to bring along.
