It’s Family Friday! Monday was for moms, Wednesday for Muscle Man, and yesterday we crafted for our kids. Today we celebrated friends and family. Join us as we with play dimension, embossing, and Host Exclusive items. We even stamp inside the card!
Many of you have asked us for inspiration on using a stamped sentiment inside your handmade card. Here’s a fun tip – most of our sentiments can look fantastic inside the card. It all depends on how you want to create it.
For this card, we created an inside / outside sentiment. We stamped the ‘Friends are our Chosen Family’ sentiment from the Chosen Family Stamp Set on the inside of our card. Then, we created a window with our Journey Circles Die to peek inside. It’s a simple twist to give dimension to your card with a sweet inside sentiment. Don’t worry; we have more examples to show you later on.
For now, let’s take a look at the outside of this card. We want to add a bit more color then a Whip Cream Cardstock with a Journey Circle right?!
Our sentiment calls for something sweet pretty imagery. It was the perfect opportunity to craft with our Pretty Petals Stamp & Die Set. These two items are special. You won’t find them in our online shop or the Blooms section of our catalog because they are Host Exclusive items.
What does that mean exactly? Our 2017-2018 Inspiration Book & Catalog includes 3 tiers of Host Exclusive items. Get your crafting friends together, and contact a Journey Coach. If you and your friends shop our products (you know all of those amazing items you’ve loved in our recent blog posts), your combined total can make you (the host) eligible to purchase a Host Exclusive item. The Pretty Petals, for example, can be purchased with a combined total of $300-$599. They are exclusive, i.e. only available, to a party host. See our Host Exclusive items here Host Exclusive Flyer ! Contact your Journey Coach for details.
Make these Pretty Petals pop. Black Licorice leaves with Journey White Embossing Powder outlines contrast beautifully with the colored cardstock flowers.
It’s simple yet serene – a perfect not to one of your best friends.
