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!
