New Catalog Open House

Last night's open house was quite the small turn out, which was a bummer because of all the preparation I did, but something I understood with it being summer and all. There's just so much to do when the weather is gorgeous!

However, the gals that were able to come said they loved the card I had designed as the free "make n take", so that was worth it. Plus, I have lots of leftovers for my next card making event! I absolutely am biased towards the color purple, so of course I fell in love with the color combo that I chose.



All products listed are Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted
Whisper White, Rich Razzleberry (new in-color!), Old Olive, Cottage Wall DS paper

Stamp Sets: Flight of the Butterfly, sentiment from Really Retro (retired)
Ink: Rich Razzleberry
Accessories: Rich Razzleberry polka-dot grosgrain ribbon, dimensionals
Tools: 1 1/4" circle punch, 1 3/8" circle punch, scallop circle punch, piercing tool, scallop edge punch


Just a few snapshots from the event...

These are York peppermint patties...
Just a little treat to say thanks for coming!

And, of course there has to be door prizes! With only three gals coming (other than my upline and her friend), they each got a door prize!

Door Prize #1 - 18 sheets of 6x6 recently retired designer series paper, including Good Morning Sunshine, Sweet Always, & Rainbow Sherbet (congrats, Kim!)
Door Prize #2 - Recently retired "in-colors" card pack, including 8 card bases, 1 yard of ribbon, and a handmade card using some of the in-colors (congrats, Sarah!)
Door Prize #3 - Same as above (congrats, Angie!)

What a nice open house. Can you tell me how you got the white paper in the card? How did you do the slits?
