Thank You, for your order

I had my first Christmas Card Club yesterday! and I believe everyone who attended had fun! We made 16 cards total. One card was a 'bonus' card. I was lazy and didn't make a party favor, so we made an extra card. (it was yesterday's post). So, for the remaining 15 cards, we made 3 different designs and 5 of each design. That way you have several to give away, and possibly one to keep for future reference.
When ever someone orders Stampin' Up! products from me, I always include a hand-stamped card. They are generally random, usually 'thank you' or 'thinking of you' cards, so my customers always have a card on hand, incase they need one in a jiffy. But, for my Christmas Card Club folks who placed an order yesterday, I thought, why not do something 'christmas-y'. They already made cards, so another card would be over kill. Or at least that's how I looked at it. So, instead of a card, they will receive this cute little box made with the big shot and a Stampin' Up! die: #113466 Pillow Box. I used the vellum card stock (#101856). How cute is that? I used Cherry Cobbler card stock for the snowflake and the snowflake die (#113449). I tied the pillow box with some of the new 1/2" Seam Binding in Always Artichoke (#121000). Inside the pillow box, I made 2 gift tags, one decorative piece, and two stickers. I used some of the stamps out of the Tags til Christmas stamp set (#121169) and I used the coordinating punches; Medium Oval (#120908) and the extra-large Decorative Label (#120907). For the pine cone tag, I used Crystal Effects (#101055) to give the pine cone some dimension. For the snowman tag, I used a glue pen (#100425) and Dazzling Diamonds glitter (#102023) to give the falling snowflakes some sparkle!
We had two door prizes, a SU convention exclusive re-usable tote and a package of some of the new buttons from the Holiday mini.
My next Christmas Card Club (#2) is on Saturday, Oct. 2! World Card Making Day! So, there will sure be some wonderful door prizes along with some cute 'thank you for your order' item. For those 3 cards, we will be using the Greeting Card Kids (#120633) stamp set, the Tree Trimmings (#116722) stamp set, and the Christmas Collage (#121279) background stamp. The bonus card, we will make a single card with the Joyful Season (#120981) letterpress plate. So, sign-up today. Seating is limited. The cost is $25, envelopes are included, and I always make food to feed your stomach. Because, who can stamp on an empty stomach?
