Stampin Card Keeper Box Class


I wanted to share a project that I've been working on for an upcoming class. I'll be offering this class at my house on Sept. 8 and on Sept. 15 at 6:30pm. I personally think it's gorgeous. I used the new Spice Cake Desingers Series Paper and the Stampin' Card Keeper from the new holiday mini catalog. The pictures just don't do it justice, but trust me...the box is beautiful.

We'll also make 2 cards during the's a sneak peak of them...

This class includes....
  • The Stampin' Card Box
  • Package of the new Spice Cake Designer Series Paper (you keep the whole package)
  • Materials to make 2 additional cards, plus envelopes
  • All the embellishments to decorate your box
  • Fun!
