Birthday Card Stamp-A-Stack

So, I’ve been wanting to do a Stamp-A-Stack for a few months now.  A Stamp-A-Stack is similar to a Stamp Camp, where you come to my house to make cool projects.  At a Stamp-A-Stack, though, you make multiples of the same items so you build up your stash of handmade cards to give away.  I always need extra birthday cards myself. 

This Sunday is my birthday.  And I decided, for my birthday, I’m finally going to host that Stamp-A-Stack I’ve been planning.

These are the cards we’ll be making.  I think you’ll like them!

We’ll be making 3 each of the 4 cards (that’s 12 cards total) with matching envelopes for $20.  Those in my Stamp Club have a special price of $16. 

The event will be on Saturday, April 21st @ 2PM

You must sign up & pre-pay by Tuesday, April 10th!  That’s only 2 weeks from today!  Click here for my contact info.

We’ll have chocolate cake (I have to with us making that yummy chocolate cake card!), punch, chips & dip…  Expect a party!

The cards we’re making are designed so there is something for everyone on your card list- a pretty, feminine one, one for the kids, a nice masculine one, and a general birthday card (I know very few people who don’t like chocolate!). 

At each of the card stations there will be instruction posters with step-by-step photos.

Here are close-ups of each of the cards, and also their insides.
