Attend Technique Class and make 3 projects for $10 (free for 6 month/$25 Stamp Club members or with a $50 order and $5 for my downline or with a $25 order). Just let me know no later than Wednesday at 7pm if you'd like to attend please, so that I may have the projects ready for you.
For the first card, we'll use Black Craft Ink and Clear Embossing Powder on Very Vanilla Cardstock to create an elegant card and matching envelope. It has an enclosure for your greeting or for a gift card. This card has a large brad, so if you'd like to mail this card, you might choose to exchange the Black Satin Ribbon bow and brad for an embossed flower also from the Creative Elements stamp set or a Monogram Letter as we've used on past cards.
This Zoo Review set card was a favorite of mine created by the Stampin' Up! team at Leadership this year. I used the penguin card for Emma's birthday thank yous, and I love the party hat added to it. (The hat scale is only right for the penguin.) You'll use the sentiment of your choice and choose either the Pool Party color scheme with a penguin or polar bear or the Old Olive color scheme with a zebra or lion. Please choose Pool Party or Old Olive in your sign up email, so that I may cut your cardstock.
Finally, we have this stained glass look card created by using vellum with the Designer Cuts Cards and Envelopes set from the Occasions Mini catalog. We'll use the StampAmajig to place our sentiments. It doesn't have to be for a mom....It could simply say Thoughts of You of course, but I like the idea of giving this floral heart to a woman rather than a Valentine/man since it is so frilly.
