How do you make a quick little card that makes a big statement? Bright colors and embossing folders do the trick and make this project Bloomin’ Marvelous for sure and are part of Sale-A-Bration 2013. In fact I used four items from the Sale-A-Bration brochure to make this project. Am I crazy or does the focal piece looks like a Pez dispenser?
The final piece of the puzzle, the Bloomin’ Marvelous Stamp set, is hiding on the inside. This sweet set has a sentiment for any occasion. The butterfly even fits the Bitty Butterfly Punch (#129406) offered in the 2013 Spring Mini Catalog.
Adding a few lines and dots with the writing tip of an Island Indigo Stampin’ Write Marker give the hummingbird a hand drawn appeal. For a softer look, use a blender pen with a stamp pad or re-inker.
Think these bows are just a little too perfect? You’re right! But they aren’t really bows. In fact, they aren’t even tied. They’re held together with glue dots. Why? To save on the bulkiness of a knot.
Now for some really important information.
Sale-A-Bration 2013 ends tomorrow, Friday, March 22, 2013 and there’s no guarantee you’ll ever be able to purchase these exclusive items after tomorrow.
