Hi there! Rhonda here to bring you a fun little card that I created using the Club Q October kits.

I wanted to create a Thanksgiving/Fall themed card with the very elegant papers from the kit. To play a bit with the elegance of the papers, I include a bit of black tulle. I attached it with some staples, then melted the top ruffles just a bit with my heat embosser.

One of the small black laser cut frames was the perfect size to create my sentiment block. Once I adhered the paper from behind and it dried, I attached it to the base using foam dots.

Aren’t the patterns and swirls in this line just beautiful? I tore my itty bitty quote vellum, then inked the edges with Mango Mai Tai.

Ingredients:
Non-Kit Ingredients:
  • Black Tulle
  • Foam Dimensionals
  • Epiphany Crafts Button Studio 14, 1 Button 14
  • White Thread
  • Tiny Attacher, Tim Holtz for Ranger

I decided to step outside the box and create some Holiday goodies!

JOY card - A mix of Savvy Davvy, Damsel in Distress, and Cherry Truffle come together for a card of more traditional colors. I cut one shadow and two snowflakes using my Cricut Expression and Winter Lace cartridge. I layered the snowflakes using foam tape adding more dimension to the card. To create the sentiment, I wrote the word out using a pencil then stitched over my pencil markings.

Other ingredients: Jenni Bowlin pin, DMC floss, Imaginsce bling, ribbon and lace unknown

The sleigh was formed using a mix of Savvy Davvy and Damsel in Distress. The pattern for the sleigh was found at www.clearandsimplestamps.com The holly was cut using the Cricut Expression and Seasons Cartridge. Other ingredients: Making Memories brads; metal studs from Imaginsce, and ribbon unknown

Celebrate the Sesaon Card - A mix of papers from Savvy Davvy and Miss Morgan blend well together to create a holiday card of non-traditional colors. The tree was cut using Cricut Expression, gypsy, and Christmas cartridge.

Other ingredients: EKSuccess punches, Twine from The Twinery, and metal studs from Imaginesce, Ranger Stickles
