Gently Falling Three Cards & Box

Here is my three card class with a matching box, using the new Gently Falling stamp set and Spice Cake Designer Series Paper and Buttons from the new 2011 Holiday Mini. This mini officially starts for customers on September first, so this is a little sneak peak of the products! For Demonstrators, we have already been able to pre-order and get these products, so here are some great things to make with them and show your customers for when they can get them!
You can easily switch up the colors and stamps for this project and make it for any occasion. I thought pastels with a baby stamp set would be perfect for this layout!
The box easily fits three of each card and envelopes for a great gift!

Card Party Cards

I have already showed you the hostess gift that I made for this party but here is the card that I demonstrated there and the card that they did.

This card uses The Open Sea stamp set and the Top Note die with the Big Shot. I used VersaMark ink for the globe and chart stamp on white paper in back and clear embossed it. Then I sponged with Night of Navy ink on top. In person you can see the images are shiny and it looks really nice.

This is the card that they did at the party. We used the Just Believe stamp set and the background uses the Very Vintage roller. I tried to keep it simple since there were lots of first timers.

Simply Soft, Sponged

I used the hostess set Simply Soft to make this card. When I first got this set I wasn't sure what to do with it but I really like it now!
The colors I used on this card are Soft Suede, Pool Party, Pear Pizzazz, More mustard and Very Vanilla. The piece of DSP that you see is the new Spice Cake DSP that is in the 2011 Holiday Mini Catalog that most of the SU demos have already. If you are not a demo, you have to wait until September 1st when this catalog officially starts to get this great new paper, sorry! One of the many great reasons to be a demo is you get to pre-order a month ahead of time from the new catalogs and we get to see the catalogs even earlier then that! If you want to be able to do this and much more, see my page about joining my team! Did I mention you get a great discount too?!
I also used Crystal Effects over the flowers to make them glow. I even did an inside to this card! I think this makes the card seem so more more sophisticated, it's like getting two cards in one! I sponged the Ribbon very lightly with Soft Suede ink so it matched the tone of the card. Without that it seemed too bright to fit. For the edges of the inside and outside I sponged them with More Mustard ink first and then went around the very edges with Soft Suede to give a deeper look.
