A Wonderful Offer!

It's the start of a new month, and with it, a new promotion! It's Palette o' Prints! For the month of May, when you place an order for $35 or more, you can get a gorgeous 6" x 6" booklet of patterned paper for only $12.95.

This card is all about the paper. I cut a piece 10 x 14.3cm to fit my card-front, and voila, instant background! The rest of the card just fell into place....all in Lovely Lilac and Almost Amethyst, to match the paper. The 'medallion' is from Boho Backgrounds (p 97). I had a ball layering this... With the great range of circle punches we have now, you could layer forever! First is the Round Tab, punched twice to make a large circle, then the scallop punch, the 1 3/8" circle, then 1 1/4" circle, then 1" circle, and finally 1/2" circle....I could have included the 3/4" and 1/4" circles but that would have just been overkill ;o)
I've used the "Wonderful Favourites" set to make a customised greeting. I have a feeling that this set may be very popular this year....with all the words in the set, you can tailor it to suit any recipient. Also the fact that it is priced at $39.95, when it should actually be priced around $77.95 will probably enhance it's popularity!
How easy would it be to use your Palette o' Prints to make up a range of these cards to suit all your family members?....sister, sister-in-law, uncle, aunt, mother (that one might come in handy soon!)
The ribbon on this card is the gorgeous white taffeta. I've gone through tons of the stuff already!
I'll be back later to show you the FABULOUS new punch storage my hubby whipped up for me!
