Holiday Card Club October 2023

And just like that…another month of Holiday Cards has been created. I have one month left then December I gear the cards towards gift card or money holders. It amazes me at times that after 20 years with Stampin’ Up! I am still crafting away. I often think are my designs boring  or are they too simple? However, I LOVE when I am finished and everything coordinates and I sit back and say, this is why I continue to love being a part of Stampin’ Up! it looks so pretty. Let’s take a look at the Holiday Card Club October 2023 cards.


Holiday Card Club October 2023

My Project:

This month I stuck with the basic colors of Cherry Cobbler and Mossy Meadow. I chose the Shining Christmas Speciality Paper and added a few embellishments and ribbon to finish out my cards. I hope I will inspire you to create a card or two! Let me know if you like them!
