Saying Goodbye :(

Yes, it’s the saddest time of the year.  It’s just about time to say goodbye to all the limited time Sale-A-Bration items.  I know.  I feel your grief.  It is so heartbreaking… especially if you never took advantage of the offer.

Well, I am also sitting here wondering just how crazy you must be not to have already ordered.. but, hey.. It’s not too late!  There are a few more days left.  And, just to prove my point…  here is a great card that is sooooo simple to make.  And, by purchasing everything you need for it, you get a FREE Sale-a-Bration item… WOO HOO!!!

(And, so so you don’t go looking for it… this card is so simple, I didn’t even do a tutorial.  I am that confident in your skills 🙂

Now, isn’t that a lovely card.  Of course, I cannot take the credit for it, but you knew that already.  This one was CASE’d from Mae Collins.  And, the best part is, it’s so easy to make.  Here’s how…

oh… what the heck… here are the directions!  (It’s wasn’t that I lacked confidence… It just helped me organize my thought process as far as what all was needed to complete the card.  If I don’t think like this, I may forget something!)

But, here is a glimpse at the items that made the card…

Product List

But, you really don’t need all of it to create the card…  Just the Bundle and the watercolor pencils will get you the paper for FREE!  Just use the card stock and adhesive you already have…  🙂

And, look… you don’t always need to color the paper.  It is beautiful just as it is – don’t you think?  I CASE’d this card form Shannon Kay!  I really hope that the new catalog coming in June has some more papers like this!

For this card, I used just a strip of the Inside the Lines Designer Series Paper at the bottom.  The sentiment is from the All Things Thanks (143089/143097) in the 2017 Occasions catalog.  The little flowers are from Petite Petals (133152/133155) in the 2016-2017 Annual Catalog.  The one is punched using the Petite Petals Punch (133322).

And, here’s a insider tip… Did you know that you can color the Rhinestones (119246) with a Sharpie?  On this card, I colored them with a red Sharpie.  I also used the red Sharpie to color in the flower centers on the envelope and the inside of the card (oh – there is no sentiment on the inside – just some flowers in two corners like on the envelope!).  Imagine the rainbow of Rhinestones you can have!!!

That’s it from me for now… I just really, really, really, really, really urge you to not let Sale-a-Bration go buy without grabbing up some goodies FREE with a $50 purchase.  Visit my online store by clicking the link on the right!

Until next time… keep it simple, Stampers
