Q's Creative Classes: Cards & LETTERS

**This kit is sold out, but you can still buy the digital kit which includes the slideshow & Printables.

Frequently I am asked what inspires my card designs.  More often than not it is the paper.  This time, however, it's the beads!

Those sweet little letter beads we used to string around a baby's wrist (why?  so we wouldn't forget their name?? :)  Well, I found these beads in a sophisticated Gold tone!  And they spell things!  It's like they were begging to put on a card.  I first ran into these little treasures in China last year.

They are also very light and a low enough profile to fit into envelopes.  I'm pretty smitten, as you can tell.  This class includes five different ways to use these letter beads on a card.  I know it's not nice to play favorites, but I'm a board game kind-of-gal so the "Friends that stay together, PLAY together" card with a Tic Tac Toe board and a petite Glassine envelope filled with...yes! Xs and Os letter beads!  Oh My! 

I'm also digging these rich colors and a break from hearts & flowers, which I always try to do in March.  Believe me, it's a challenge!


What you'll need:

Adhesives:  Roller-type adhesive for putting cards together.  

Foam squares and glue dots (mini & medium). Scotch tape.

Tools & Supplies:
