Game Night

This card is the original thought I had when I purchased Game Night on my demo preorder.  I thought it would make an awesome invitation for Bunco using the calendar with the date highlighted.  I ended up not using it for my Control Freaks swap, but instead made up a few for a mini organized swap I did at Leadership. 

I printed off some calendar pages, then stamped the flower from Short & Sweet over the date.  I stamped Game Night in Basic Black on Real Red and punched it with the My Way punch.  The die I stamped with Craft Real Red and Craft So Saffron, then embossed them with clear embossing powder to make them shiny.  I punched with the 1 3/8 circle, then matted with the Scallop Circle punch in Basic Black and popped it up with dimensionals.  I cut a strip of the dice designer paper from Jackpot and layered it onto Real Red.  I covered the seam with the Red striped ribbon.  Bunco was cut with my Big Shot using the Go Go Boots die…what a fun font! 

Trivia for you…there are two correct ways to spell the name of this game…Bunco or Bunko.  I was in several groups when I lived in Canton…unfortunately, I haven’t found a group down here in Dublin that plays regularly.  It is a fun, mindless throwing dice game that allows you to talk and play at the same time.  Loads of fun!

OMG! I am in a bunco group here in HI and I would love to try and make something along the same lines. I never knew people elsewhere even heard of bunco until my sister in MN mentioned she plays dice with a group. I commented “oh, like bunco?” My sister couldn’t believe I heard of it. So anyway, now I know and now I know another stamper and bunco player. Wohoo! Thank-you.
