Create & Share Cardmaking
Happy Handcrafted Greeting Cards for All Year Long

In a world dominated by digital communication, handmade greeting cards slipped into real paper envelopes and mailed the old-fashioned way have become more special, more rare, and more important than ever.

Start your year off right, getting the inspiration and the instructions you need to create 36 handcrafted cards in just 6 weeks! You'll also learn a proven system for organizing your finished cards, and you'll create a "happy mail kit" that makes it easy to share them with the people you love throughout the year.

Cardmaking all-star Kim Kesti will kick things off with a handy checklist to help you outline a year's worth of card needs. Then she'll inspire you with 12 videos, 12 card sketches, 12 cards from her guest designers, and 12 colorful handouts (each featuring step-by-step instructions by Kim for completing two cards as well as step-by-step instructions by a guest designer for completing an additional card).

Whether you're a beginning papercrafter, a seasoned cardmaker, or a scrapbooker looking to get more mileage from your stash of supplies, this interactive online workshop will reconnect you to the joy of cardmaking...and cardmailing, too.
