Make two Christmas Cards using Faux Calligraphy and LEDs

Sending a Christmas card has always been the perfect inexpensive option to let a family member or friend know you’re thinking about them this holiday season. Unfortunately, it’s becoming a lost art as people choose to send Grandma a Facebook message on Christmas day instead of the classic card that holds so much more magical meaning. We’ve stepped up the card game this year and bring you the chance to learn faux calligraphy and LED electronics!

For the first time Jacqueline and Karen are teaming up to bring you an exciting new workshop experience! Come learn faux calligraphy in a step by step guide and then deck out your cards with some awesome LEDS! You”ll make not one but TWO Christmas cards to give to a loved one this holiday season.
