Silver & Gold Card Workshop

I knew the Silver & Gold products from Close to My Heart were going to be fun to design with the second that I saw them, and I was right! I loved creating the Scrapbooking Workshop so much I knew that I was going to have to play with it again, but this time it turned into a Cardmaking workshop.

They were so much to create. They are so so so much prettier in real life that in the photos!
Lets take a closer look. The workshop creates 30 cards, (2) of 15 designs.

              October is a wonderful month in the world of Close to My Heart...and I wanted to create a workshop that would help support the Share a Smile monthly special for October. During the month of October there are various products that are available to help support the charity Operation Smile. 


              With the purchase of every Punny Pals stamp set, Close To My Heart donates $7 USD of the proceeds to Operation Smile™, an organization that provides surgeries to repair cleft lips and palates for children around the world.

The card kit includes the dies, card bases, envelopes, paper, and step-by-step instructions for creating 32 cards, and it is available at a discounted price! Create these delightful cards and use them to share smiles all around!
