It's been a fun and busy couple days with the launch of Sale-A-Bration, Stampin' Up!'s biggest promotion of the year. Many customers are gobbling up the opportunity to earn free Sale-A-Bration stamps, ribbon and exclusive Designer Paper for every $50 spent. Ooh la lah!
Today's card begins with inspiration from a Clean and Simple sketch (FTL27) and colors I discovered blended here, in this week's Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC165). I layered two pretty patterns from Flock Together Designer Series Paper over Garden Green and a 4.25 x 5.5 card base in Very Vanilla.
The vertical banner includes Tempting Turquoise Textured card stock layered over Certainly Celery. I love the way the So Saffron 5/8" Grosgrain Ribbon (exclusively available as a Sale-A-Bration product) really pops against the Turquoise. TIP: Need a little help tying 5/8" ribbon? The trick is holding one side in place while pulling with the other.
"Thanks" (from Thank You Kindly, one of my favorite sentiment sets) was inked in Tempting Turquoise on Very Vanilla. TIP: I chose this font because it reminded me of the swirly tails on the birds. The sentiment is layered with Stampin' Dimensionals over So Saffron and Certainly Celery. So Saffron Brads accent the corner.
The Perfect Touch? I love to layer punches. This little flower was "just the thing" to finish off my sentiment. It includes a 1/2" Circle of So Saffron Textured card stock adhered with a dimensional to Tempting Turquoise and Garden Green Boho Flowers.
TIP: I quickly customized my Very Vanilla Medium Envelope (107300) with Beautiful Borders dipped in Tempting Turquoise.
