About the Course
Note: This workshop is running in Tiverton. However, even if you live away from here, please enquire as venues and dates can work around student demand. I am always happy to hear from you and try to work around you.
These relaxed, rewarding and fun workshops from 'Buttons On The Rocks' aim to give my students the skills to create a variety of luxury greetings cards for a wide range of occasions. These cards make use of a gorgeous selection of buttons and embellishments chosen carefully by you and many are personalised to make them extra special.
On the day you will learn about a range of techniques to make your greetings cards. Being closer to Christmas, it is my intention that this workshop will be very flexible and there is a choice as to themes of cards that you can make.
Everyone will make:
- a digit birthday card with a scrabble name on the front for someone special
- a paper-punched and hand-stamped flower greetings card (occasion is your choice but could include birthday, thank you or get well soon messages)
- a luxury celebration card (such as anniversary, mother's day, wedding, christening, birthday or valentines to name but a few). This could alternatively be a luxury picture Christmas card such as a tree or bauble. This item will have a 3d printed message on the front of the card.
- a set of 12 mini button thank you cards or 12 mini button Christmas cards (or a mixture!)
- a paper-punched and hand-stamped balloon or elephant greetings card (occasion is your choice) or a paper-punched and hand-stamped Christmas card.
There will be a wide variety of my cards on show on the day for inspiration. The course begins at 10am and finishes around 4pm.

Numbers are limited, so please make sure you book on the course quickly to ensure you get a place.
Upon booking, I will be in contact for you with further details. You can give me an idea of which types of cards you would like to make during the day. You can also send any front of card or inside messages you would like preparing ready to print on the day for personalised cards. I appreciate that on some occasions, you may wish to prepare a special card, but don't yet know the finished details (such as an up and coming birth of a baby or wedding). Here, you can prepare the main card and then take the materials away to finish at a later date. There is always a way to make it work and it is no problem!
Returning students will receive a 10% discount on further workshops. You will also be able to purchase cards for the next month with a 10% discount from my shop.

I would love you to browse my Etsy shop to see what kinds of cards you could make during the workshop and also to read reviews from my customers. I truly believe that these cards are 'more than just a card' and I can guarantee they will take pride of place when received. They are an absolute pleasure to make too!
