Baker's Dozen Card Event Card Set #1

Clean and Simple Designs with Sale-A-Bration

So Very Much & Avant Garden

Welcome to day one of five in which you will see the card designs for the upcoming Baker's Dozen Card Event.  A clean and simple design was used to create a set of five card using two stamp sets from the Sale-A-Bration Catalog.  

While I love the Hey, Chick Stamp Set, So Very Much and Avant Garden are my two favorite in this years Sale-A-Bration Catalog.  The beautiful font used in the Thank You stamp is large and elegant.  It is a fabulous stand alone stamp. 

Initially, I stamped Black Versafine ink on an A-2 size Thick Whisper White horizontal folding card and then heat embossed the sentiment with clear Stampin' Emboss Powder.  However, on the bottom card, I used VersaMark and heat embossed with Gold Stampin' Emboss Powder.  Next, I used the variety of stamps in Avant Garden to create delicate backgrounds in various color schemes. some of which, I used second generaltional stamping.  One card even includes some of the suggested colors in the Sale-A-Bration Catalog.  Lastly, I added and heat embossed a few of the other sentiments included in the So Very Much Stamp Set. In hindsight, I could of stamped these earlier when stamping the Thank You.   

Each of these cards takes no time to make and in a pinch they make the perfect combination for making a Thank You card on the fly, as well as a lovely set to give as a gift! Avant Garden and So Very Much is a must for everyone's stamp stash!
