November Kard Swap group

Related Posts Plugin for WordPress, Blogger...Well I can't believe that Thanksgiving is next week.  This month our group met at Jeannine's house.  She always makes us a little something extra and this time was no exception.
Here is the treat box that held 4 Hersey's Treasures.  Yep mine are gone!  Aw you know you would have eaten them too!!!  They were delicious.
The box is cut from Art Philosophy page 22, the tag is on page 64, the leaf is from page 78
We always do a make-n-take that the hostess will do and Jeannine had us make Gift Card Holders.
The first one I made using a paper that had a horse one it.  Well you know me and my horses!  The card is cut using a Sizzix scallop square die.  You place 2 sheets together and cut them with the die at the same time.  Then you cut it all the way the 2 and tape the sides together leaving the on scallop un taped so it can overlap the bottom piece when you close it.  Use a piercing tool to make a hole and a brad to work like a hinge. The 3-D bow is cut from the Z1790 Artiste Cricut cartridge and so is the flower.
 The second on uses the same Sizzix die you just don't cut through the one side.  The card is cut and then scored and then you run it through the Sizzix machine.  You can also use the Z1790 Artiste Cricut cartridge it has 2 gift card holders

Tamara used Memory Box Die and a Sizzix embossing folder to make this cute christmas tree card.

This is what it looks on the inside how cut is that.

Next was Laurie's card which is a tea bag fold card.

Erin made a faux tri fold card.  I love the colors it uses the stamp set D1550 Happy Autumn

Here is the inside and what makes if a faux tri fold.  The paper is  CTMH too!

Debb used a border punch and then stamped and cut out the fall leaves from CTMH. 

On the in side it is stamped with a retired CTMH stamp set and punched with a scallop oval punch

Kathy's is a center Tri-fold card with a belly band.  I love all the colors.  The rain boot is a Stamps for life stamp and die cut.   

The inside is stamped with Close to my heart retired C1495 Just chillin and Stamp of life.

Lani made a easel card using Spellbinders.   

Here is is from the side so you can see how it sits.

Jeannine made a snowman card that opens up into a 3 tier snowman.  The snowballs are cut from Spellbinders.  The face is a stamp from Peachy Keen.  The hat is cut from Everyday Paper Dolls Cricut cartridge

Here it is opened up and stamped with CTMH C1506 Flakey Friends.  What a fun card to make and get.

Donna made a 60/40 card.  She use a random stamp technique for the front and a strip on the inside.
You never have to worry whether you have a coordinating paper or not because you can make it just the way you want it.

 You can see the strip on the inside as well as the 60/40 opening.  I love the colors she choose.

I made a post-it-note holder that I cut from the Z1790 Artiste Cricut cartridge.  It is a little album but I hid all the holes except the 2 on the flap to put the Z1921 bakers twine in.  I used the Pathfinding paper pack and Kraft paper
