We are a few weeks into Sale-A-Bration now so I’ve picked up a few products already. My goal each year is to try to get all of the offerings- either by earning them with my purchases or through benefits as a demonstrator. One of my recent acquisitions during SAB 2014 is the Good As Gold Simply Sent Card Kit, item 133512.
The kit includes:
- 8 card bases (3 1/2 x 5 inches)
- 8 envelope liners
- 1 sheet gold foil tags
- 1 sheet printed die cut tags
- 8 pieces gold elastic cord (24 inches each)
- 8 pieces Bermuda Bay Baker’s Twine (24 inches each)
If you follow the samples and photos shown, the kit yields 8 cards. Using the sentiments provided, you can make general occasion cards/gift cards (for you) or thank you cards. The sentiments are in English, French and German which is a fun twist. I have to send out several thank you cards so I opted to make thank you cards. Also, since I have to produce so many cards, I decided to cut the card bases in half and use them as a layer on a plain card stock base. I used Island Indigo, Crumb Cake and Pistachio Pudding for the cards shown.
Banner Blast Stamp Set (SAB 2014, item 133551)
- Banner Punch (SAB 2014, item 133519)
- In Color Boutique Details (IBC item 130938)
- RETIRED ITEM: Bitty Clear Buttons (you can get a similar look using Vintage Faceted Designer Buttons, item #127555)
By cutting the card bases in half, I will be able to make at least 16 cards. However, if I don’t use the entire piece of card base as a layer, I will be able to get more. There are enough sentiments to get 12 thank you cards, but using some other stamps, I should be able to get a few more.
So far, I’ve completed 6 cards. More to come later. But here the close-ups of each of the cards so you can see the detail. Sale-A-Bration ends March 31, 2014 so if you’d like a chance to have some of these great products, now is the time to act. For every $50 you spend, you earn 1 item.
