At first I wasn't going to get this card kit, because I usually just do my own thing when it comes to card-making. But after taking a closer look, I knew I had to get it, not only for the great stamp set that is included, but also for the die cuts - especially the one on this card. I am positively thrilled that there will be a die like this one in the new catalog! It is in the Eclectic Layers Thinlits Dies (p 213), and you can bet your booty that I'm ordering it on June 1st!
But back to the Soft Sayings Card Kit, which is on page 11 of the new catalog. This is perfect for beginning stampers because it includes everything you need to make 20 beautiful cards (2 each of 10 designs), except the glue and/or glue dots. Really, it even comes with a clear acrylic block for sticking your stamps on to stamp! Even advanced stampers will love the convenience and versatility of having a card ready to assemble without having to do the prep work.
The kit includes a Basic Gray Stampin' Spot, pre-cut and scored card bases (already colored), matching envelopes, all the die cuts, an acrylic block, the awesome 15 piece stamp set, Stampin' Dimensionals, Washi tape, and baker's twine. All in a tidy little box, which would make a perfect gift, too!
I loved the faux stitching on all the white labels! It's just the perfect little detail that makes the card extra special.
So, as you are poring over the catalog, make sure that you look closely at the kits! Don't skip over them, as I did at first. There is a lot you can miss if you do! Don't have a catalog or a Stampin' Up! demonstrator? If you live in the U.S. I'd be happy to send you one so you can see for yourself just how fabulous it is. Just contact me, and I'll be in touch!
