January Card Swap - Valentine's Day!

I participate in a monthly card swap so that I can get and share ideas with others. I got this idea for a similar card from Julie Davison, a fellow demonstrator. Here is her card. I tweaked it and made it my own! I love that I don't have to come up with my own ideas for cards I make. In fact several of my cards were inspired by others I've found online or via the Stampin' Success magazines for Stampin' Up demonstrators.

While my layout is similar to Julie's I eliminated the shaker aspect of the card and just left it as a window. I love the Peek-a-boo Frames Die for the Big Shot! How about that GORGEOUS Twitterpated Designer Series Paper and the Blushing Bride pleated satin ribbon! 

Don't forget the inside! I didn't add a sentiment so gushy love note could be written here (It could happen!) but I did emboss the hearts with cherry scented embossing powder. In the 2012 Occasions Mini there are 3 scented embossing powders - cherry, vanilla, and melon. The cherry smell is very sweet and not like any other cherry scented thing I've come across!

If you would like a copy of the 2012 Occasions Mini or the Sale-A-Bration catalog I would love to share one with you! The Sale-A-Bration is in full swing with something free for everyone - customers, hostesses, and new demonstrators. If you have questions about the benefits of Sale-A-Bration don't be afraid to drop me a line.
