It’s day 9 of our countdown to Sale-a-bration (starts 28 January). Sale-a-bration is our annual Stampin’ Up! party, with loads of free products. This year we’ll have THIRTEEN! different products to choose from and you’ll be able to get one free for every £45 you spend (with no limits to how many you can collect – spend £90, get 2 freebies etc). I’m showcasing a different SAB freebie every day in my countdown.
Today’s sneak peek is another swap from a Paper Dolls team mate, this time from Maria (in return for my Sale-a-bration MDS card). Maria used the Decorative Dots embossing folder to give interest to the white background without drawing too much focus from the prettily coloured image.
The small square base of Whisper White card was embossed with the Decorative Dots folder. After stamping and colouring the flowers from Simply Sketched (hostess exclusive Wood 129669 or Clear 129672) they were die cut out with the Labels Collection framelits (125598). The same set of framelits were used to cut a frame from Gold Foil Sheets (132622) and the image was slotted into the negative, die cut centre. The advantage to this rather then simply matting on top, is that you keep the card flatter for cheaper posting and make the Gold Foil Sheets go further (you’re not “wasting” the centre) – that’s clever thinking Maria.
Another sneak peek tomorrow – not long to go now!
