Q's Creative Classes: Christmas Village Cards

I've turned all your favorite Christmas village buildings (Churches, homes and toy store) into five shaped cards.

Brimming over with delightful Christmas details; poinsettias, holly berries, bells, wreaths and snowflakes.  Plus techniques that add a snowy, glittery feel. 

After your done making cards, why not turn your attention to home decor?  This Christmas Village can be hung from a garland to decorate your mantle, a window, wall or even a Christmas tree.  And if you're feeling super creative and have the time, you could create your own 3-D boxes to mount the card fronts on with chipboard (cereal boxes work well).  Will get pictures of home decor items a little later, but instructions will be included in the slideshow.

Kits will begin shipping Oct. 30th.  (Please add shipping from the drop-down menu.)
If you're attending a class, I will bring kit to class.

What you'll need:

Adhesives: Your favorite tape to put cards together, foam squares and glue dots (mini, micro and craft) and scotch tape.

Tools: Scissors (long & fine-tipped), micro hole punch and Corner Rounder.  Paper piercer. 

Misc: Distress "Frayed Burlap" Ink pad & Sponge.  Craft Mat (to work on), lid (to keep small pieces in), pencil.
Technique Products: Christmas Red Ice Stickles (from Ranger), Dylusions White Linen Ink Spray (from Ranger).  Also, fine glitter (I like Martha Stewart) and a clear-drying thick liquid glue like Diamond Glaze, Glossy Accents (from Ranger) or other brands.  I recommend that you finish these additions at home, after class, so they have plenty of time to dry without being moved.
But wait...there's more!
Who doesn't love to multi-purpose?  Christmas Village Card Class does just that with easy to transform card fronts into a Christmas banner or 3D Christmas village.  

String village and banners together with a sparkly trim and deck your mantle, window or wall.

Or mount card fronts on boxes for a handmade Christmas village!
