A Special Thanks

I've had such terrific workshop hostesses this past month!  I've had incredible workshop totals, as high as over $700!  I've been so busy getting all of the orders  in and product delivered, and now that it's done, I want to work today on some special cards to say thank you!

Here's the first one:

Sometimes I'm happier with my cards than other days, and today, I'm just feeling really good about this card!  I began with a Splitcoast Sketch Challenge of the day which is always a great place to start.  I noticed that the main focal image was just the right size for a stamp set I haven't had a chance to use yet — it's a Level 2 Hostess Exclusive stamp set called Wings of Friendship.  You can earn this stamp set FREE when you host a workshop totaling at least $400.  AND if you were to host a workshop with a $400 total, you'd also earn an additional product from the Sale-A-Bration catalog FREE.  Check out the Sale-A-Bration promotion HERE.

I began with Basic Gray as the base of my card, then added blocks in Rich Razzleberry, Old Olive and Pale Plum.  The stamp set offered several choices of images that I could incorporate in the first two blocks, and the sentiment comes from Thank You Kindly, which you can earn FREE with a $50 purchase.

I stamped the main image on Very Vanilla card stock 4 different times — the first on the piece of card stock I used for the card, and the next three times on scrap card stock in three different colors.  I cut out the two flowers and bird, added a Gold Brad to one of the flowers, and adhered them with Dimensionals.  I paper pierced across the top with my Mat Pack and Paper Piercing Tool and added a piece of Rich Razzleberry 1/2" Polka Dot Gosgrain Ribbon.  Underneath the main image is a strip of Basic Gray punched with the Scallop Trim Border Punch, another item you can earn FREE with a $50 purchase.

Here's a close-up of all the dimension I was able to achieve on this card with one simple, inexpensive product — Stampin' Dimensionals.
