From a beginner to an advanced card crafter, this course will introduce you to the card crafting world. You will learn about everything from the basic tool requirements to completed cards, covering a multitude of both traditional and modern techniques.

Starting with the card crafting essentials, you’ll learn about paper and card – the different sizes and weights, envelope types and sizes, and the tools that should be in your craft kit. We’ll look at different card styles, shapes and folds, along with how to make inserts and create backgrounds.

Brilliant set of courses. I recently completed an Egyptology course with them and was so impressed I enrolled into Greek mythology diploma. (I'm doing a masters in classical studies so the Greek mythology course will help). I'd recommend them to anyone who wants to learn new things at their own pace
