Holiday Card Club September 2023

Are you busy the 4th Thursday of the month? Want to join in my Holiday Card Club? I start my club in July and finishit the 2nd week of December. By then club members have 48 cards created on a non-stress level. The cards are prepped for everyone and completing them comes with ease, not frustration. The only downfall, people just struggle making a bow that I have made some cards with no ribbon (the horror) or a simple knot. Let’s take a look at the Holiday Card Club September 2023 creations.


Holiday Card Club September 2023


Card #1

The stamp set this month as Joy to You. I picked it becaue I absolutely LOVE stacked sentiments and I liked how large they were. No mini stamp that I could easily stamp on die cut or punch. It challenged me and creating 4 cards with the sentiments, I will consider a “Joy to me.” The first card, I did a fun folded card that is merry and bright.

The first reaction in class to this card…lots of pieces and lemon lime twist really isn’t a holiday color. HOWEVER, after completing the card, they were all happy with the results. Plus, it was another fun folded card!
