Sweet Threads Simply Sent Card Kit

This card was designed by my upline, Rene Watson, for the shoe box swap earlier this month. She almost felt like she was cheating using this card - why? This card is part of a kit so everything is pre-printed, die-cut, and pre-pierced and is already color coordinated for you! Now - you too - can cross-stitch!! Look at everything you get with the kit:

  • 8 printed cards (4 each of 2 colors) - scored
  • 8 white envelopes
  • 8 die-cut pattern pieces (needle holes pre-pierced)
  • Embroidery Floss in 2 colors (Lucky Limeade and Primrose Petals)
  • 2 embroidery needles
  • 32 Stampin' Dimensionals
All that for only $12.95! The quantity of floss included is actually enough to stitch with 6 strands at one time - but you can also use less if you prefer. I used 6 strands in my sample but if you used 3 it would have a slightly "thinner" look. Some people said that it was easier to thread 3 strands of floss than 6 - so keep that in mind when you use this kit. 

The coordinating Sweet Essentials stamp set is not included in this kit so that you can use any stamp you want - however it can be purchased separately for $6.95. OR -

Stampin' Up! has created yet another GREAT bundle! You can purchase the Sweat Threads Bundle which includes the Simply Sent kit AND the coordinating Essentials stamp set for $16.95 - if purchased separately they would be $19.90 - that's a savings of almost 15%!

I'm so glad that Rene chose to use this stamp set. Really it's a great value for the kit but is easy to step it up with your favorite ribbon or paper scraps in your stash!
