I'm back! Sunday was a full-on day of card making, chatting, shopping and eating at our Mini Catalogue Launch at the Banyo Bowls Club. Food FX catered the event, and as always, they did a magnificent job. My kids love to feast on the leftovers (if there are any) after our events. If you are looking for a caterer I can heartily recommend them. Here's their website: Food FX
These are the cards I designed for our Launch featuring gorgeous new Holiday Mini Catalogue products. Apologies for my photos, I was taking them at night in bad lighting (really I do know better!).
The first card features the new Chevron Border Punch, Winter Frost DSP Paper stack, White Stampin' Chalk Marker (for the faux stitching) and the Love & Joy stamp:
Nothing too complicated about it, but it is an easy one to mass-produce. If you are like me, Christmas cards MUST be capable of mass-production, unless you are only planning to send two cards!
The second card showcases the new Seasons of Style Designer Washi Tape, Oh, Goodie! Stamp Set, Silver ribbon (it is so pretty!) and Christmas Messages stamp set.
Lou's Tip: The Magnetic Platform is fantastic when trying to exactly line up a stamped image or sentiment in a framelit. I used to do the "Post It Note" trick where a post it note was used to temporarily anchor the framelit in place. Not any more! To see a video of the magnetic platform in action, look HERE.
And last of all, Christmas Messages stamp set and Tape It (from the main Catalogue).
As always, if you'd like to order these products so you can make these cards yourself, email me, or else head on over to my Online Store to place an order. Click to go to Handmade By Lou's Store
Next post I'll be showing Rebecca O'Gorman's cards - they are so pretty!
