9/25/13 Favorite Cards from Founder's Circle Part One

 

One of my favorite aspects of Founder's Circle is the AMAZING swap that most of us participate in. Last year I picked my five favorite cards to share with you and this year . . . I couldn't pick just five. So, I went with eleven!! The first six are Christmas cards and the five that I will share with you tomorrow are my five favorite non-Christmas cards. The card above is by Shelli Gardner and Sara Douglass. Just beautiful! It uses the stamp set O Holy Night on page 33 of the Holiday Mini. Love the Pretty Print Embossing Folder in the background, too.


This card went right to the "gotta case this" pile! It's a very sweet Santa inspired dress. Sara Wills created this card using the Dress Up Framelits and the stamp set called Tags 4 You. I just think this is so cute!! How about you?


Lee Conrey created this card . . . and I love it! Nice and easy with great sparkle. I don't have that sentiment from the set Joy to the World pictured in the Holiday Mini on page 24, but it is on my Wish List now! The ornament is from the stamp set called Christmas Collectibles and you can save 15% when you bundle it with the punch. Both items are found on page 35 of the Holiday Mini.


This card by Debbie Moczek just makes me laugh out loud! Yup, her swimsuit top is made out of the stocking cap!! Too clever! If I lived in FL, I would make these for my Christmas cards. Unfortunately, we won't be exposing quite so much skin here in MN and the stocking caps will be planted firmly on our heads come December! This card uses Snow Day on page 25 of the Holiday Mini.


Laura Mulligan made this lovely vintage post card featuring Santa. I'll admit, I'm partial to anything vintage and this one was my favorite! She used the stamp set Santa's List (page 31 in the Holiday Mini), and the following stamp sets from the main catalog: Post Card, Postage Due and Notable Notions.
 
 
And finally, check out this CUTE card that Jill Hilliard made! OMGoodness!! Do I "need" that stamp set, too?? Might as well buy the whole darn catalog at this rate! lol! This set is featured on page 32 of the Holiday Mini. It's called Color Me Christmas. The sentiment is from Christmas Messages on page 24 of the mini. The card is a flip card and you can find ordering information by clicking on Thinlit Dies.
 

Here you can see the card opened to reveal the message on the other side of the flip. Just an all around GREAT card and I'm excited to feature it at one of my upcoming Clubs.

I hope you've enjoyed seeing some of my Christmas favorites from Founder's Circle. Stay tuned and I will share with you my favorite five non-Christmas cards tomorrow!
