Christmas Card Club 1: Oh What Fun Card

This is the last of the five cards we made at my Christmas Card Club Session 1, held in my Colorado Springs home. Check out my Event Calendar for more classes you can enjoy if you live in or around this area. My Christmas Card Club Session 2 will be held soon, you can click on either day/time for more details, and to RSVP: Friday, October 18th from 7-10pm, or Saturday, October 19th from 9am-12 Noon. (cards are the same on Friday and Saturday, I just offer two times for your scheduling convenience)

This is another card design which was inspired by one I saw in a demonstrator-only gallery called Stampin' Connection. This private gallery is just one of many perks you can enjoy when you Become a Demonstrator! Right now you can JOIN Stampin' Up! for ONLY $25 October 7th through 21st, 2013 ONLY!!!
