Fresh Cuts ~ Sneak Peek.... sssssh



This is a Sneak Peek promo for the upcoming SU Idea Book & Catalog (IBC)... I must confess, the Fresh Cuts set isn't my normal cuppa-joe, but I am liking this card. Part of the sneak peek are these nifty, 4" laser cut cards. The Purely Pomegranate DSP petals are actually the inside 'lining' of the card - they are the die-cut outs. The Old Olive DSP leaves are made from my 3/8" Circle Punch and the center flower is the 5 Petal Punch in Almost Amethyst, and finally, the very center flower is from the Spring Bouquet Punch (also Purely Pom). I snazzed it up with the lilac Rhinestone from the SU Ice Circles collection. I used 1/4" strips of Amethyst and Pomegranate DSP to 'frame' the background image, as it isn't as big as the card.

This month's SU eScape promotion is as much about "promoting" you to write handwritten notes and sentiments as it is about giving you a deal on the eScape bundle. Remember how great it is to get a letter in the mail - better yet a card that someone hand-made just for you? It's so easy to get caught up in the instant-gratification of technology... GO WIRELESS this month! I challenge you to send a card to someone who will least expect it... or me. Shy Just jivin'. Not that I wouldn't LOOOVE it! :) Recapture that fun! I double-dog dare ya...
