One of the amazing new packages of pattern paper in the Annual Catalog is Petal Promenade. This paper is loaded with tons of lovely floral images. You really don’t need to add very much to the card to achieve a beautiful look.
For this card, I stamped some flowers from the Abstract Impressions stamp set and then hand cut them out. These flowers are a little wonky when cut out, but I love the contrast between the abstract flowers and the soft florals in the paper.
I sprinkled a few pearls in around the flowers. They are a little hard to see in this picture with the background, but they show up nicely in person. The love is die cut from our new Gold Glimmer paper. I have to say, that the redesign of our Glimmer paper is so worth it! It is a little thinner than our old Glimmer paper, and that makes it so much easier to die cut. What a difference!
I had someone ask me recently if people still mail cards. And the answer is definitely YES. Wouldn’t you rather get a card in your mailbox instead of a bill? Don’t forget to share a little love with some friends.
Our Bonus Days special is a great chance to stock up on what you need now, and then get something at a discount in September. For every $50 you spend before August 31 (before shipping and tax), you will earn a $5 Bonus Days coupon code that can be used September 1–30. There is no limit to the amount of $5 Bonus Bucks you can earn and they can all be used at the same time! The Bonus Buck coupons are sent out by email to you once you place your order. Make sure you keep that email in a safe place as Stampin Up does not track those coupon codes.
