Hostess Club Projects for September

 September Hostess Club we made these cute fall projects.  I guess they were a hit since I received a lot of orders for the Hardwood stamp and the Wonderous Wreath and the Curvy Keepsake box Thinlit.  For the "door" we used Soft Suede on Baked Brown Sugar I cut two panels one that was 4 x 5.25 and one that was 3.5 x 4.5.  The larger is adhered to card base after stamping and sponging and the second is cut down the middle at 1.75 and then each of those is cut off center at 2 creating two panels 2 x 1.75 and 2 panels 2.5 x 1.75.  The wreath was stamped in Tangelo Twist then over stamped in Soft Suede, the berries were stamped in Gold Encore and then Gold Dazzling Details was applied after the whole card was assemble.  The bow was stamped in Tangelo Twist on Tangelo Twist.  The box was simply cut out adhered together with Fast Fuse.  One hint on the assembly-don't try to line up the inner corner of the box bottom just make sure the box bottom is a square and that you have handle across from handle and slot accross from slot.  I found that my score lines were very deep so I put them to the inside of my box so that the didn't have too much stress on them and tear.  The Gold Glitter Paper Feather and the Mossy Meadow Leaf are cute with the Wood Accent and the Linen Thread.
We stamped the To and From image from the Merry Everything Stamp set then punched it out with the Note Tag Punch then flipped it over and stamped the Grateful for You in Mossy Meadow.   The Give Thanks if from the Good Greetings Set that you can only get by hosting a $300 workshop between now and October 31.
