Creative Card Making Classes

My promise to you is 4 beautifully finished cards with matching inserts envelopes and poly bag, as it's important to me you go home completely satisfied, each week we have a different theme and I never repeat a design unless a class books out and students request a second class. Please email me at for my latest class dates or check the blog regularly for up dates, if you're new to card making or just want some help getting a professional finish to your cards, let Card Art Originals show you how.
