 Art Impressions "Christmas Scene" Trifold Card
with Shirley

Friday, November 20th            6:30 P.M.       $7.50

We will be coloring the "Christmas Scene" Trifold card.  I will stamp the card for you and you will also receive a handmade envelope.  If you have never used Gamsol, this will be an opportunity to give it a try. Gamsol is great for blending/shading and really gives your card a finished look.  I will provide everyone with a small glass container of Gamsol and a blending stump to use in class and take home when class is over - all you need to get started.  More supplies are available for purchase at Stamp Fever.

Supplies needed:     Colored Pencils
                                   Wink of Stella
                                   Basic Stamp Kit

Avoid books with shiny or brittle pages, mold or mildew.
