Christmas Card Club Returns!

Yes, Christmas Card Club is back with a beautiful, softly-colored snowscape* that’s glimmering and shimmering with subtly sparkling glitter; not to mention a gorgeous Buffalo plaid background (with awesome embossed edge!) and the perfect seasonal sentiment. Join Elisabeth on Friday, April 15th from 5-9pm and make five cards of this lovely design. The cost is $25 and dinner is included. There are just six places available, so email elisabeth@paperanthology.com ASAP to reserve your spot!

This is a great way to get a jump on December’s biggest papercrafting chore, while hanging out with your fellow cardmakers. Please note that while the meeting starts at 5pm, you don’t have to arrive that early; you should be able to complete all five cards, even if you arrive later. Please bring your basic kit and a little bit of holiday spirit!

*For the record, the only place we want to see snow again this spring is ON CARDS! :)
