I used to be a Stampin' Up! demonstrator. I love the company, the products, the people. I still follow the blogs of several amazing designers. SU's new catalog was released on June 1 and as always there are lots of new goodies. I saw this card on one of the blogs and knew I had to case it.
It's a masculine card, which is sometimes difficult to put together. I have a male friend who wears bow ties and knew I had to make it for him. The cardstock is one of the new 2012-2014 in colors, Midnight Muse and one of SU's staple colors, Cajun Craze. The dsp is from a new collection called Comfort Cafe. I love how everything coordinates! I used the Petite Pennants Builder punch and the 1/2" circle punch to make the bow ties. Not my idea, but brilliant anyway. The sentiment is from the set A Word for You. It's available in digital format and is only $3.95 for 6 sentiments including the one I used.
Tomorrow I'm heading to a demonstrator's open house to see all the new SU products and to do a make and take. Looking forward to some FUN!!!
