Faith in Nature

Hi hope your day has gone well.  A quick post this evening.   

Here's the card and holder that we made in class today.  We used the Hostess stamp set Faith in Nature.  You can't buy these sets but you can receive them free when you host a party with £150 sales or put in a personal sale of the same.  Another way is to gather up some orders from friends and family and as long as you reach the correct sales you can benefit from the hostess pounds to spend as you like in the catalogues.  If you don't think you know many people interested in crafting then why not join in with my Virtual Hostess Club. When it comes round to your month then you will be able to choose out of the hostess sets with out having to have a party.  You can see more information on this using the page tab along the top of my blog.  A new club will be starting in April.

Back to my card and this beautiful stamp set.  As you can see we stamped the leaf randomly on the Whisper White and corner rounded two corners then made a topper.  The topper is an Elegant Eggplant scallop punched circle.  Then Certainly Celery punched out with the 1 3/8" punch.  Finally just the flower head was stamped in Elegant Eggplant and punched out with the 1 1/4" circle.  We stamped the flower head again this time cutting out just the flower and attaching with a Dimensional and a Basic Rhinestone in the center. 

The main panel was mounted onto Elegant Eggplant which was attached to a Perfect Plum card base. 

I thought it would be nice to make a holder for the various cards that we make.  I got the template for the box from here.  Whilst there take a look round, as Jo has lots of lovely items. The box is also Perfect Plum with the same decoration as the card but has a frill of Certainly Celery punched out with the Eyelet Border.

This started out a quick post but I've waffled on a bit!  Thanks for coming by. x
