Two bits got me excited about finally attempting to make one of the quite popular slim line cards. I unburied this card, from long long ago, while purging my stamping space once again. (I’ve been in this new space here in Idaho for a year now and it’s obvious to me that I need to do some serious reorganizing.)
Below is the sketch I’m using as a layout inspiration. Check the Freshly Made website for inspiration now and then. www.freshlymadesketches.blogspot.com. It’s a fun way to get started.
Today’s card is 6-1/2″ x 6-1/2″, scored at 3-1/4″, same as the measurements of the ice skating card. And no, I didn’t put my image in the lower right corner, per the sketch, once I got going. But the sketch was definitely my courage and inspiration to get going.
I used two items from this year’s Sale-a-Bration (aka SAB) offerings: A Touch of Ink stamp set and the Berry Delightful Designer Series Paper. If you don’t have a copy of the SAB brochure, click on the words Sale-a-Bration for the PDF link. Let me know if you’d like me to mail one to you. You might also want to 2021 January-June Mini Catalog. Send me an email and I’ll get one of each off to you.
Sale-a-Bration Items Used:
The envelope…… Believe it or not, wa-a-a-y back when, Stampin’ Up! had Open End Whisper White Small Envelopes (product #107286) and I still have some. Crazy! I’ll work out a simple pattern today, for this 6-1/2″ x 3-1/4″ card and post it tomorrow.
How can you get today’s Sale-a-Bration products? Place a Stampin’ Up! order (preferably in my Stampin’ Up! store unless you are a demonstrator or have a demonstrator with whom you normally work) of $100 or more to ‘earn’ them. The Touch of Ink stamp set and the Berry Blessings Stamp Set + Berry Delightful DSP (remember, that’s Designer Series Paper) are each FREE with a $100 purchase. All other items in the SAB brochure are FREE with a $50 purchase.
When you place an order in my Stampin’ Up! store, please use the January code below. At the end of the month, I’ll send you a thank you gift for shopping with me. 🙂
I’ll be back tomorrow with the envelope template/instructions. The rest of today is ‘shot’ so I have to vacate my computer now and take care of other business. Thanks for stopping by!
