This custom of sending greeting cards can be traced back to Asia and early Egyptians who conveyed their greetings on papaya scrolls. In this workshop each participant will create ten handmade 5×4 folded greeting cards for any occasion. Decoration methods include stamping designs with various colored inks and heat setting with embossing powder. Instruction will include how to give your cards elements of dimension. Design details include using stickers, specialty scissors and a punch tool. A variety of hand marbled paper and origami paper will be available for collage techniques.
