My preorder came yesterday, and of course I had to play with it right away! I made the easiest of cards with the new Happy Birthday Thinlit. I can see that this is going to be a favorite. I found this thinlit easier to use than some of the other detailed thinlits – the script is a bit thicker, and it fell out of the die easily. It’s gorgeous isn’t it?
The designer paper is also from the upcoming 2017-2018 Annual Catalog – it is called “Pick a Pattern”. My card bases are Bermuda Bay and Melon Mambo, but I think this design would work on most of our Brights.
The balloons are made with the Balloon Bouquet punch. I drew the strings, but you could use a string stamp and mask off the greeting area. I didn’t want to take the time because my preorder box of goodies was calling!
As we await the new catalog, there are still awesome deals to be had in the store. Many of the retiring items are discounted, and the Clearance Rack was updated recently. Please visit the online store for prices.
Order $35 or more, and I will send you my Featured Card (the Jar of Love pocket card, through the end of May). Orders over $50 also qualify for a Buckeye Point in my Loyalty Rewards Program. Online Customers will also receive a new Annual Catalog.
Have a great day!
