Stampin' Up Garden in Bloom

Make and Take Monday!

Hello everyone! It's Monday and I want to share a make and take card that was created with the non stamper in mind. So many times we'll have a make and take workshop,and the guests are totally over whelmed. This is a card that is simple, and there's not a ton of steps to remember.

We are using the 2016 - 2018 In Color Collection stamp pad collection #141818


Whisper white card stock and the Garden in Bloom stamp set. #100730  #139433

Dapper Denim and Peekaboo Peach card stock. #141414  #141417

The other stamp set I used is, Work of Art, for the sentiment. #134114

This is on the same order as the One Sheet Wonder cards, that everyone is doing. Especially if you have a lot of thank you's to send out, this would be a great way to get those done.

If you do not have a Stamp' Up demonstrator and you would like to order these items, I would love to be your demonstrator and send you a catalog. Go to my online store 2 Peas in a Pod and you can order everything you need and have it shipped directly to you.

Thank you for stopping by. Have a blessed week! Hugs Brenda
