Thank You Cards For April Orders

This month I decided to make little thank you cards for my customers using some old stamps and some new, which will be available from June 2nd. Just for a change, I cut my card to 3 inches square and used the tiny square envelopes (item #107309) which come in a pack of 40 for $12.95. These are too small for posting through Australia Post, they'd most likely get lost along the way, and because they won't be going into the post, I've stamped on the outside too.

Since we're all getting into re-cycling and up-cycling, I wanted to show my customers how to up-cycle this card by cutting off the message I've written to them, and using the front of the card. Add a couple of squares of coloured card, cut just a smidge larger!!!

My thinking is in imperial measurements, and most of my ladies would think metric, so a smidge is the technical term for just a mark or two larger than the original. My choice is ¼th  inch or 1/8th inch and metric users probably have their own favourites.

These pieces of Watermelon Wonder and Delightful Dijon could have been stacked neatly, and that was my original intention, but as they accidentally became skewed, I really liked that effect too, so that is what I chose.

The old favourite stamp on this stamp is Work Of Art for coloured splashes of colour and 'Thank you'. The new stamp is You've Got This for the flower and the texture on the Tip Top Taupe base. These new In Colors for 2015-2017 are gorgeous and slot into the existing colour palette so comfortably - it's the best-fit ever, in my opinion.

You can request a new annual Stampin' Up!® catalogue now, in time to begin ordering 2nd June 2015. Call or email to arrange a time to pick one up, or have one dropped off. Postage within Australia can be arranged for $7.50 direct debit to my bank account, again, just email rpalmieri5@bigpond.com with a catalogue request, and I will contact you for an address and for payment details.
