cards, Catalogues, Sale-A-Bration, Stampin' Up!

ANY OCCASION SITTING HERE!

Last day for Sale-A-Bration tomorrow.  Unbelievable!  I can’t believe that we are 1/4 of the way through the year either.  Crazy!

I have had in mind for a few weeks to do this card but I wasn’t sure how it was going to work.  I managed to grab a little time yesterday to put it together.

I wanted to hang the banners from the Sale-A-bration set Any Occasion across the “ropes” of the bench on the Sitting Here set.  I was pleased that they actually fit.

Colours are Watermelon Wonder, Mint Macaron and Tip Top Taupe.  Three colours that will be leaving us at the end of May.  😦  You better stock up on these colours now.

I coloured the bench seat with the Inkpad and the Blender Pen. The cushion was stamped separately and coloured, then raised up off the card with Dimensionals.  The card layout is based on a Freshly Made Sketches #179 sketch.  I added some Silver Glimmer Paper down the side but thought it still needed something.  I then added a Baker’s Twine bow and a Rhinestone on the cushion.

Hope you like it?

Last orders will go in tomorrow night for Sale-A-Bration so don’t delay.

Keep dry if you are on the East coast of Australia.  It is a little wet around these parts.

MINI SCALLOP SQUARE CARDS WITH ANY OCCASION!

I have been making these mini Thank You cards recently for all my lovely customers who have placed orders with me during Sale-A-Bration.   I used one of the Sale-A-Bration sets ‘Any Occasion’ which I think is overlooked in the Sale-A-Bration catalogue.

The cards are about 7.5cm square (about 3″). They are quite simple cards cut with the largest Layering Squares Framelits.  I will show you how to do that below.

The left one is Watermelon Wonder with a little Blushing Bride for some banners. The right one is Bermuda Bay with a little Mint Macaron.  I added a bow with White Baker’s Twine.  I really should have added some bling I think???

To create your own Mini Scallop Square Cards:

Place the largest Scallop Square of the Layering Square Framelits on your folded card base so as the top edge of the framelit is just off the edge of the fold of the card. This will mean that the top won’t be cut through. See the photo above.

Run the card and Framelit through your Big Shot as you would normally.  Below shows how the card looks after cutting it.

Decorate the card as you like.  I also added a piece of card inside to write on.  They make quick little cards to give with a gift.
