Welcome to the second NC Demos Blog Hop. You should have just come from Tracie Langley's blog. I loved her two projects!! Hope you are enjoying the projects this month from the Occasions Catalog and using Stampin' Up's In Colors and are getting a lot of ideas for your own projects.
Each year when the new annual catalog comes out (June 1), there will be 5 NEW In Colors introduced. The sad news is that means 5 colors will RETIRE. The retiring colors this year are shown below:
The ink pads, cardstock packs, ink refills and accessories will only be available while supplies last. They usually sell out quickly!! So I would suggest if you love these colors, you order them now before they are gone AND also so that you can take advantage of the FREE gifts offered during Sale-a-Bration!
OK - on to my project. This was a fun card to make! It measures 5.5" x 5.5" so a special envelope was made for it using the Envelope Punch Board The card folds flat for mailing but when the recipient receives it, he/or she can open each section like an easel card. Wouldn't this look nice sitting on a desk for all to see?!
The In Colors I used are Hello Honey and Mossy Meadow. I also used Cajun Craze and Mint Macaron which are the matching colors for the Botanical Gardens DSP.
This is the card flat - well sorta flat! It kept popping up as I was trying to photograph it. I needed a couple of extra hands to hold it shut but when you put it in an envelope, it will be flat.
This sentiment is from Flower Patch. I used the Decorative Label Punch to punch it out and sponged the edges with Hello Honey ink.
Each top square (Hello Honey) measures 2.5" x 2.5". They are attached to the bottom rectangles (measuring 2.5" x 5" and scored at 1.25" x 2.5".
The stamp set, Botanical Blooms, framelits AND DSP can be purchased as a bundle saving you 15%. It is a great set!! If you would like to place an order online, please use my Hostess Code found at the top of my blog posts. By purchasing this Bundle, you would qualify for a FREE item from Sale-a-Bration! Who doesn't like free???!!
Hope you are enjoying the Blog Hop! Check out what my other NC pals have to show you!! Laura Meier is next on the Hop so make sure you click on her name.
