CCC: September Edition

The next meeting of Paper Anthology’s Christmas Card Club will take place this Friday, September 10th, from 5-9pm, see details below. We will be stenciling and ink blending to make this bold and beautiful card in traditional red and green, with plenty of fresh, bright white. There will be kits available, if you’re unable to attend; email elisabeth@paperanthology.com to reserve your spot or purchase your kit!

As promised, the details:

We’ll each be making five cards of one design (pictured above) featuring this lovely ornament stamp from Hero Arts and dies from Sunny Studio. The cost is $25 and includes dinner.

This in-person event is limited to six fully vaccinated participants. To reserve your place, EMAIL elisabeth@paperanthology.com AND include a photo of your vaccination card. You’re welcome to wear a mask during class, but please be aware that your (fully vaccinated) fellow participants will not be. Please note that all Paper Anthology staff members are fully vaccinated, and are taking care to keep surfaces and hands extra clean.

NEW Class in a Kit: Homespun Holidays

This three card Class in a Kit is called Homespun Holidays and has a strong winter/seasonal theme, rather than focusing on a particular holiday. All of the stamping (the sentiments are Hero Arts’ Comfort and Joy Clear Stamps) and diecutting (including Sunny Studios’ Warm and Cozy set) has been done for you; and a detailed set of instructions, with individual photos of each card, is provided. You’ll need only basic cardmaking tools and a few adhesives to finish these three sweet and cozy cards. The hardest part might well be deciding which friends to send them to!
