3/$5 Card Making Night - November

A couple of weeks ago, I held my November 3/$5 card night (holiday themed, of course!) It was an awesome turn out and I think each of the ladies had a lot of fun. Many of them decided to make 2 sets of cards, so I was glad that I had made up lots of extras!

My card night fell during the week before Thanksgiving, so I knew it was the perfect time to add a Thanksgiving card to the "card menu".

Stamp Set:
Day of Gratitude

Paper: Old Olive, Cajun Craze, More Mustard, Early Espresso, Very Vanilla, Autumn Spice Specialty Paper

Ink: Cajun Craze, Old Olive, markers: Cajun Craze, Old Olive

Decorative Label punch, basic pearls, Dimensionals

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

I saw this card at Laurie's Stampin' Spot and instantly fell in love with it! I only tweaked a few things (mostly the sentiment) because I adored everything about it.

Stamp Set:
A Cute Christmas, Teeny Tiny Wishes

Baja Breeze, Real Red, Whisper White, Candy Cane Christmas Specialty Paper

Ink: Basic Black, Real Red, markers: Baja Breeze, Pink Pirouette, Real Red, Garden Green

1/4" Real Red grosgrain ribbon, Snowflake punch, Scallop Oval punch, Modern Label punch, basic pearls, Dimensionals, Dazzling Diamonds glitter

I thought it might be fun to add a little something different to this month's card night, so we made a gift card holder. I found a quick and simple tutorial on how to make these. I used the Two Tags Die to make the portion of the gift card holder that comes out and attached a piece of tape to hold the gift card in place.

Stamp Set: Season of Joy, Occasional Quotes (sentiment - Hostess Level 3 set)

Paper: Very Vanilla, Cherry Cobbler, Old Olive, Jolly Holiday Designer Series Paper

Ink: Cherry Cobbler

Scallop circle punch, 1 3/8" punch, 1 1/4" punch, scallop dotted trim, sticky tape, Dazzling Diamonds glitter, 1 1/4" striped Old Olive, Two Tags Die (used with Big Shot), Dimensionals, silver elastic cord (retired)
