In 2003, Stampin' Up! partnered with Ronald MacDonald House Charities, and each year since then they have designed a new stamp set that is dedicated to RMHC. Three dollars is donated from the sale of each set, and over the years this has added up to hundreds of thousands of dollars going to this worthy cause! I love being a part of this company!!!
I always thought the sets were cute in the past, but mostly weren't something I could really use. This year is a wonderful exception! I am so in love with this very versatile set - so many ways to use it, for so many different occasions!
This is a cute little love note-sized (3 x 3) card that would be perfect tucked into the top of a gift bag, or under the ribbon on a small gift. (It was the other project we made at the stamping team meeting last week.) The inside says:
MONEY CAN'T BUY HAPPINESS....
BUT IT CAN BUY CUPCAKES,
AND THAT'S KIND OF THE SAME THING.
We used the 2015-2017 In Color Envelope Paper for the little envelopes and leftover scraps on the cards. You can get four envelopes out of one 12 x 12 sheet, with enough left over to trim the cards. The envelopes started as a 5-1/4" square, and were punched and scored at 2-5/8" on the Envelope Punch Board.
3" x 6" Whisper White (1/8 of a 12 x 12 sheet), scored at 3" for card base.
5-1/4" x 5-1/4" Envelope Paper, punched and scored at 2-5/8" on all sides for envelope.
1-1/2" x 3" Envelope Paper adhered to bottom of card front.
2-3/8" x 2-3/8" Whisper White, stamped with greeting and cupcake bottom, then adhered to
2-1/2" x 2-1/2" Soft Suede mat, centered and adhered to card base.
Scrap Mint Macaron to stamp cupcake top in Mint Macaron ink, then punch out.
Scrap Whisper White to stamp candle in Soft Suede, then cut out.
Scrap So Saffron to stamp candle flame, then punch out and glue over white flame.
Trim 1/8" off bottom of candle and glue to cupcake top. Adhere cupcake top to card with Stampin' Dimensionals.
