You are cordially invited to attend my 5th annual
November 14th, 2009 from 10:00 to 3 p.m. Maranatha College, Watertown
Potluck lunch, Christmas music, Holiday Gifts & more!
Grand Prize: Christmas Punch stamp set (page 14)
NEW: 2 options for the day-- sign up for your chosen card designs & quantities of 10
OR pay $15 to come and craft on your own and have the use of my tools and inks all day!
Card Design 1: Rich Razzleberry Top Note Card. Unusually colored in shades of deep purple, this elegant card features a beautiful snow-white dove accented with Dazzlin' Diamonds and Crystal Effects, topped with our luscious new Whisper White Satin Ribbon. Two choices for inside sayings. Whisper White envelopes you may stamp or sponge to match your cards if desired.
Card Design 2: Ruby Red Poinsettia Card. A subdued but classic color scheme of ruby red and hunter green, this card takes a little bit of hand-cutting and a dash of Brushed Gold cardstock to make it memorable. Spritzed with Champagne Gold Shimmer Paint, so the whole thing subtly sparkles. Spritz the matching Very Vanilla envelopes to match if desired. Alternate inside and outside sentiments available.
Card Design 3: Bravo Burgundy Cardinal Card. A simple color scheme requires no hand-coloring of this bird, so it is simple to reproduce but still looks elegant due to the Hodgepodge Hardware accented with the Champagne Gold Shimmer Paint, and two layers of ribbon in moss and burgundy. Kraft envelopes match the card's base color. Alternate inside sayings shown here.
Card Design 4: Sterling Silver Snowflakes Card. A truly classic silver and pale blue color scheme compliments these heat-embossed silver snowflakes for a card that looks complicated but is really quite simple. Silver cording and a little sponging bring out the sheen without overwhelming. Keep your creation out where it can be admired with the coordinating Crystal Clear envelopes.
INSTRUCTIONS: email Lyssa with the design number and quantities you wish.
Cards must be ordered in multiples of 10, with a maximum of 100 cards per person.It is recommended that you choose at least two types of cards rather than making all one design, as that gets old fast! I would order ten more than you think you will need, as there are always a few last-minute cards needed.
Envelopes are provided this year. You must bring your own adhesive. Prices are as follows:
$20 for one set of ten cards
$30 for two sets of ten (20 total)
$35 for three sets of cards (30 total)
$40 for four sets of cards (40 total)
$45 for five sets of cards (50 total)
$50 for six sets of cards (60 total)
You must RSVP by Nov. 2nd. if you are making cards, Nov. 9th if you will be crafting on your own.
BONUS OFFER: order either of the "hand stamped by" stamps on page 136 when you RSVP and I will have it ready for you at the event so you can let everyone know you made these beauties yourself!
Special price just for attendees of this event: $14.95 instead of $18.95!!!!

Oh my! Lyssa, these are beautiful! I especially love the first one with Christmas Wishes. I've been toying with the idea of designing one without embossing and even using the Top Note, but hadn't been able to come up with it yet. This is IT! Would you mind if I use this or some variation of this for my SAS this weekend? I am posting today on SCS the card I had designed, but not been entirely happy with. I will give you proper credit of course!

What inspiration! Just held a stamp a stack for my customers, but I like your way of giving them options!

Absolutely GORGEOUS Lyssa! I sooooo wish I could come to your SAS - but I guess a trip from Australia would be a bit far huh! lol
