November Club Q Inspiration with Louise!

Hello Quick Quotes readers!

Louise here with a couple of quick holiday cards I made using my November Club Q kit and the new Very Merry Digital collection.



Both cards are 5 1/2" by 4 1/4".  I made the card bases by cutting a piece of 8 1/2" by 11"white cardstock in half.

To create the Hanukkah Card:
  • Print Very Merry papers 3 and 6 onto white cardstock
  • Stamp a greeting onto Very Merry 6 using PowderPuff Chalk Ink in Kokomo
  • Trim the stamped image to 4 1/2" by 3" and edge with PowderPuff Chalk Ink in Kokomo
  • Trim Very Merry 3 to the size of the card and edge with PowderPuff Chalk Ink in Kokomo
  • Assemble card as shown, adding ribbon and jewels from November Club Q


A couple of hints about the Hanukkah Card:
  • If you don't have a Hanukkah stamp, you can add the sentiment digitally before printing the paper out, or use a generic stamp that says something like Happy Holidays.
  • If you don't have a 12 inch printer, you can print a portion of the digital paper onto the size paper your printer supports since you are going to be trimming it into a card anyway.

The Christmas Card is made entirely from the Altered Kit in the November Club Q. To make the Christmas Card:
  • Cut Holly Jolly 103 to the size of the card and edge with PowderPuff Chalk Ink in Cactus
  • Find the pre-cut piece of red patterned paper and edge with PowderPuff Chalk Ink in Lipstick, adhere to green side of the first paper
  • Apply adhesive directly onto the ribbon and adhere along the line between the 2 papers, trimming the ribbon to about 1/2" past the paper on each end
  • Fold the ribbon over the edges and tape to the back
  • Thread the leftover ribbon underneath the attached piece of ribbon and tie a single knot. Trim the ends of the ribbon on a diagonal
  • Cut out greeting element and edge with PowderPuff Chalk Ink in Cactus
  • Trim pre-cut banners so they don't overlap the greeting element and edge with PowderPuff Chalk Ink in Cactus
  • Assemble card as shown, adding a single jewel from November Club Q


There are many different cutouts in the November Club Q that can be used as the greeting element in place of the one I chose. That is a great way to make multiples of the same card with each a little different.

These cards were both very quick to make and fit into standard envelopes, things that are very important if you send a lot of cards this time of year.
