As we wind down 2012, I would like to wish each of you a very Merry Christmas and may you have a wonderful celebration with family and friends.
As we look forward to 2013, there is Sale-a-Bration and I have a sneak peek for you. This is a quick and easy card and can be used for just about any type of occasion. All you have to do is change the sentiment and it can be birthday, anniversary, thinking of you, etc.
Stamps: Madison Avenue (c – 129660, w – 129657, 2013 Sale-a-Bration Catalogue), Pretty Petites(c – 129642, w – 129639, 2013 Sale-a-Bration Catalogue
Paper: Natural White, Whisper White, Summer Starfruit, Sahara Sand, Sycamore Street DSP
Ink: Calypso Coral, Summer Starfruit
Accessories: Big Shot, Floral Frames Framelits, 1-3/4” Circle Punch, Calypso Coral Marker, Sycamore Street Ribbon, Sycamore Street Button, Simply Score Tool, Borders Scoring Plate
I used the Borders Scoring Plate and did a zig-zag effect across the bottom of the Sahara Sand and stamped with the smallest stamp in the Madison Avenue set.
This plate comes with a guide to assist you in the embossing. A couple of things that I did find is that you need to be consistent in the pressure you apply with the stylus.
The DSP papers are made using MDS2 and printing on Whisper White card stock.
I hope you have enjoyed this sneak peek and I will be back with another one as we count down the days to the Spring Catalogue and Sale-a-Bration
