We are wrapping up some fun at CHF...clearly you know what I am talking about?! Ok...just in case you missed it, the clear sheets have been on sale and that sale ends this week--I am telling you this is by far the BEST clear stuff I have ever used. Just a pointer...they would also be AWESOME with your cuttlebug and dies, your nestabilities, your punches...you can customize your own shapes with these beautiful clear sheets and they are durable enough to last.
Before I share my card with you I have had some very GOOD questions recently. I have been wondering how I could highlight them so they wouldn't get lost in my post so I am going to do a mini Q&As.
You use a lot of CHF and I went looking and I find it hard to find what I'm looking for...any suggestions for their site? I love the backgrounders you use and the school set.
A: The best place to start is the homepage
You'll always find the newest releases on that page and the main links. You can click on the images in the new release area and get a direct link to the set. You can also click on the "buttons" (Thomas Kinkade, Kim Hughes etc) along the edges. I find that if I know the set--or the images in the set, the search button will help refine that search for you. There is always room for improvement and I know that is the plan for the future so your input is welcome.
I have a question for you. what prompted you to go to all Prism cardstock? None of our LSS has this brand of paper. What do you like about it over Stampin Up paper?
A: I switched over to prism for a few things...1) I LOVE the ability to choose texture and non texture sides 2) Many magazines (for publications) like you to submit cards made with products that are more readily available, although SU! is available in many communities it's not available in all communities 3) CHF carries Prism paper--you'll find that I usually use products available through CHF--it's a one stop shop.
**Prism paper is not as thick as SU! paper but I still really like the quality.
This is absolutely beautiful .. just one question .. where do you write your sentiment for the recipient of the card?
A: Kimberly was referring to THIS card. I actually placed the inner strip of polka dot paper just for that reason and then the front strip covers it. If you don't mind seeing the message through the card there is always the option of writing it on the visible part of the flowery paper.
I used a sanding block to distress my buttons.
I even decorated the inside of the card!
So after I took photos of this card I found some gingham ribbon on the floor and suddenly thought "I NEED to add this to my card". So my question is, which one do you like better...ribbon or no ribbon?
