Holiday Card Collection from 2013 Michaels Classes

Holiday Card Collection from 2013 Michaels Classes

The following are the sample cards I made (and taught) for the 2013 Holiday Card Classes offered at Michaels last year.  I did not design these cards; the lesson plans were provided.  I thought I’d share them to show the types of projects/classes that were offered last winter.


Vintage Holiday Card Tricks Class:

This class featured distressing techniques, heat embossing, and using Sizzix dies with the Big Kick.  We created a waterfall card, used washi tape, and created an interesting ribbon embellishment.  I also added alcohol inks for coloring metal embellishments to the curriculum.

Very Merry Card Tricks Class:

This class featured heat embossing, using Spellbinders dies and a score board.  We added shimmer and bling  to all of the cards for a festive touch.

Classic Holiday Card Tricks Class:

This class featured dry embossing with an embossing folder and using a Sizzix die with the Big Kick. We created a card with vellum and a cut-out which glowed when a battery-operated tea light was placed behind the card front when it was displayed.  We also created a tri-fold card and a step card.
