Waterfall Card Class!!

I am finally ready to offer my first class! So many of you have asked for it and given me ideas and suggestions and been so patient with me while I try to figure out what I was going to do. I am so excited to let you know what I finally decided!

Since it has been raining SO much lately (and I've had several people asking for it), we are going to make waterfall cards! These are the coolest cards to make and to receive and probably one of my favorite projects to do! If you receive my newsletter than you probably have a little bit of an idea of how one works. Basically it is a moving card with four different panels that are all connected. When you pull a string connected to the panels they all move upwards, revealing each panel, creating a waterfall effect. It is hard to describe but you will LOVE it!! Your friends will "EWWWW" and "AHHH" over it. I will have a lot of different themes available for you to use on your waterfall card--birthday, baby, children, flowers, etc... You will pick the colors and the theme.

In addition to making a waterfall card, we will also learn how to alter wood blocks using patterned paper, monogram letters & stamps. You will be able to choose from various TAC papers & stamps. These are great to decorate your home with or to give as a gift to a friend or to your child's teacher as an end of the year thank you. Here is an example of one that I have done recently--although what we make that night may be quite a bit different (I'm still working on the design). There are so many ways to alter these blocks and I think that once you make one, you will want to make more and more and more!

This class will be Thursday, April 19th at 6:30 PM in Inman at a location to be determined. Please RSVP to me by Wednesday, April 11th (I extended that time frame a little) at jentac@inmanks.net or give me a call. Cost of the class will be $12.
If you have a paper trimmer, scoring blade, ruler and/or bone folder please bring those items with you (marked with your name or initials).

I look so forward to hearing from you!! We'll have a great time!

  1. I really like your waterfall cards. I like how you used the leaves as a background stamp. I have made a couple of waterfall cards in the past and they are tons of fun to make. This will be a fun class for people. Good luck!
