Card Candy

There are many great things about being a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator and one of them is getting to see and order products from upcoming catalogues.

Sadly some great products currently available in the Spring Mini Catalogue, including this gorgeous Spice Cake Designer paper, will no longer be available after 31st April but we then have our Summer Mini which starts on 1st May.

The Summer Mini caused alot of excitement amongst the European Stampin' Up! Demonstrators as there are some fantastic new products. My pre order arrived yesterday & I couldn't wait to unpack & get started.

I found a tutorial for a card candy box and have adapted it to fit UK size A6 cards & it was so easy to make using one of the new products which will be available from 1st May.
It's a great gift idea & includes colour co-ordinated sentiment mats & 2 of each sentiment from Sincere Salutations so the recipient can customise their own cards.
I've included 4 cards in 2 different designs.
And here's what they could look like after the sentiment has been added.

This will be one of my June classes and I will post full details of the item & cost once the new catalogue has launched.

Pssst - Have you spotted another new product one one of the cards??

  1. Love this Sharon - do you have the link to the original project? Have tried to find it, but unlucky! Or do you have the details available? Would love to do this for my elderly in-laws who find it difficult to get out for cards! Many thanks. Angela x
