Relief Society Card Club tonight!

We started this in January of this year and it’s getting more and more popular. Tonight we are having “Christmas in July” and I am teaching the make and take. This has been a lot of fun, because we have different sisters taking turns doing the make and take each month, and tonight for the first time, we’ve split into two swapping groups. The idea was to stop at 10 people, but we had 16 people sign up tonight so we have two swapping groups!

Tonight I’m teaching the make and take and I’ve made a Gift Card project…

The finished project makes a 4″x4″ card. I’ve used the Emporium papers from CTMH, a CTMH snowman stamp, I’ve chalked around the background of the stamped image, and used some SU! punches and corner rounders. The inside of the card holder looks like this:

I’ve done a similar project like this before back when I was a CTMH consultant, but not with this group — for the “holder part, you just pull a credit card out of your wallet, stick a couple of picture corners at the bottom corners as a guide, and place on your card where you want them to go. The card folds up, the little band slips over it to hold it in place and voila!

I’m also swapping tonight… this card is made with CTMH Evensong papers, and an Angel Company stamp. I’ve also used a couple of SU! punches, the lace punch and the ticket corner punch. Also Sparkles and Picture Hangers from CTMH and some stash ribbon.

The nicest thing about our Card Club, is we have it at a local Panera Bread. It’s actually closer to most of us than our church building, many of the sisters meet an hour early to have dinner together and Panera is very friendly about letting us meet there. No dining room to tidy up!! 🙂
