Cooking Up Cards

Cooking Up Cards: Four Fun Recipes for Greeting Cards

Taught by Kim Kesti and Friends

Interested in card making, but don’t know where to begin? What if four experts in the field gave you their very own "recipes for success?" Our card chefs are ready to provide the dash of inspiration you’ve been waiting for, and we’re betting you already have all of the ingredients you need: some paper, a few embellishments and a pinch of glue.

In Cooking Up Cards! you will not only get a great introduction to card making, you’ll also meet expert chefs Allison Landy, Betsy Veldman, Kim Kesti and Teri Anderson. Each chef brings something different to the table, and will share with you their own unique Signature Dish, including step-by-step instructions. Then, watch the magic happen as they "swap recipes" and each creates three new cards. That’s a total of twelve additional cards to fill your plate with inspiration.

This class will not only motivate and teach you, it might just be the beginning of a whole new adventure. You’ll have access to our downloadable chef’s recipes (card sketches), as well as a recipe swap, where you'll see three additional versions of each card. Wondering where to store your sketch recipe cards? As an added bonus, there are instructions for creating four different recipe boxes, decorated in each chef's own style. Trade recipes with your friends, and soon you’ll have your own file bursting with inspiration. You won’t even gain an ounce!
