October Creative Club - Christmas Cards and Tote Bag

October’s Creative Club will be held on Thursday, October 18th at 7pm. We will be using Close to my Heart’s beautiful Pear & Partridge Collection to make 15 Christmas cards (5 cards each of 3 designs) and a cute tote bag to hold them. Once you send out your cards, you can use the tote as a gift bag!

The project kit is $30 and includes all of the following: 
  • (15) 4-1/4" x 5-1/2" Colonial White Cards/Envelopes
  •  Pear& Partridge Workshop on the Go stamp set (see photo below)
  • (3) pieces of Pear & Partridge patterned paper
  • (4) sheets of cardstock (Colonial White, Cranberry, and (2) Cocoa)
  • (6) Pre-cut Colonial White bracket shapes
  • (6) Pre-cut Cranberry bracket shapes
  • (10) Pre-cut Cranberry poinsettia shapes
  • (108) Red Glitter Gems
  • 5 yards of Tan Twill Ribbon
  • Step-by-step instructions
Other supplies, not included, needed to complete the project:

Stamp set that is included with your kit.

Your completed cards and envelopes will fit inside the adorable tote bag that you will also make. Everything will be at your fingertips when you are ready to fill out your Christmas cards this year. Once you send out your cards, you can use the tote bag as a gift bag for someone special.

Make (5) each of these three cards.


Everything fits nicely inside your tote.
