Stampin' Up! Australia - Stampin' Up! Petal Parade Sale-a-bration 2014


Here's a bit of an unconventional Valentine's Day card....but appropriate if you give cards to your Mum or your daughter for the occasion. 

I was inspired by the image at Case Study this week plus the sketch from Pals Paper Arts has been on my mind ever since I saw it! 

I have used a BRAND NEW stamp set that will be available during Sale-a-bration from 28 January to  31 March. The stamp set is Petal Parade and you can get it for FREE with any order of $90.

If you would like me to send you a free Sale-a-bration catalogue, just email me and I will pop one in the mail. It's a great time of year to score new and free Stampin' Up! product!. 

Notes/confessions on this card...

I initially wanted to make this card more 'folk art' like the image, but my CAS style just wouldn't go there.....I used the little flower flourish from 'Best of Shelli' to give it some folk edge and the scallop of the heart framelit also echoes the doilies in the background. My card was also only meant to be a white panel on a white base with my masked feature, but my masked vertical feature was slightly crooked so, to 'fool' the eye, I cropped it down a bit and mounted it onto a Real Red panel as a slanted piece....it's all the rage right now so why not!!? :)
