Christmas Card Buffet

Get a jump start on your Christmas Cards and Holiday projects.  I tried to pick projects with different styles, with something that would appeal to everyone.

WHEN: Saturday, November 7 from 11-4:30

WHERE: Red Robin, 316 E. Winchester, Murray

WHAT: Make only the cards and projects you want to make and make as many of them as you would like.

RSVP: By Thursday, November 5 to or 801-967-3210.  Let me know which cards and projects you would like to make so I can have enough ready for that day.  Some projects may be limited on supplies and will be reserved for those that RSVP first.

The cards are $1.50 each, or 10 for $12.50 (mix and match) and include an envelope.  Here are the designs:

Dasher features one of the most popular stamps in the current catalog.  The card is a "Z Fold" and says Christmas Greetings on the inside.

Olive Swirl is the perfect card for mailing because it is very flat.  This card is completely inspired by one that jentimko posted on Stampin' Addicts. Ink is sponged on using an easy reverse masking technique.

Merry Christmas Tree features a band dry embossed paper that gives it lots of rich texture. Ruby Red, Mellow Moss and Always Artichoke give this a lovely muted look too.

Talk about texture, Joyful Ornaments features flocked paper for a velvety feel.  Those ornaments are punched out (no cutting required) to make this a quick and easy card that is very elegant.

The Santa's Sleigh card features the sleighbell ribbon from the Holiday Mini catalog.  It has a vintage feel to it with the Crushed Curry, Real Red and Old Olive color scheme.

This fun Snowman card has a card-length window on the front that peeks through to the greeting below.  It also features shimmer paint on the snowmen.  Thanks to Dawn Griffith for the inspiration on this one.
Razzleberry Trimmings is not your traditional Christmas card. The Rich Razzleberry, Rose Red, Black and White offers an eye-catching color scheme that is sure to stand out from the crowd this holiday season. 
And for all of you who like to send a Photo Card, this long card fits in a business-size envelope and has a place for you to put your family picture.  The greeting says "From our House to Yours."
Here are the other projects that will also be offered:

This beautiful Snow Frame would look beautiful on your wall or mantle, even after the holidays. It measures 8x10 and "SNOW" is cut from vinyl and placed on top of the glass.  Add a photo in the top right corner for an treasured keepsake. Cost: $12

Wish everyone Joy this holiday season with this JOY Banner.  An extra elegant addition to your holiday decor. It features the flocked paper from the Holiday Mini.  Each banner will be precut for you to quickly assemble. Cost: $5

 Deck the Halls in the color of your choice.  These Sparkly Ornaments can be made in any of Stampin' Up's 54 colors (assuming I have the reinker on hand).  Please specify which color you would like when you RSVP.  These are not hard, but they are time consuming. Cost: $2 per ornament

These small Gift Tins are perfect for lots of holiday gift giving.  Fill them with with candy, gift tags or they are the perfect size for a standard gift card.  $2 each

Speaking of Gift Tags, these are just a sampling of ones you can make.  I will have lots of samples for you to copy, or you can make them your own.  Thanks to Cris for these cute tags and to Rhonda for the photo. Cost: 4 tags for $1.

And it wouldn't be my buffet if I didn't offer a Scrapbook Layout as well.  With spots for three 4x6 pictures, it will be easy to complete when you take it home. (Printed Paper panels may vary.) Cost: $6.
