Card Workshop

Jan Leonard continued her well planned series developing the use of her earlier calligraphy lessons even further.  As usual her notes for the card making were comprehensive and well thought out. Step by step plans for even the most challenged of us. Personally made cards are more valuable than any you can buy in a shop and the receiver knows that extra skills and time have been spent on them and that you value the family, friendship etc. The photo of Dale's piece shows an explosion or map fold, the card on the left is marked with fold and cutting lines.
