Just popped on here to show you a card I am making as part of a set to go in a decorated tin. If you are a regular visitor to my blog you will remember a while back I made a decorated tin of cards to give to a friend - well she asked me to make two more as gifts. I have managed to make one set (although the tin isn't yet finished) and this is the first card for the second set. I have covered the tins in some of the gorgeous flocked paper from the Mocha Morning Speciality DSP and this one is for the Crumb Cake and Basic Black tin. I have used the Triple Treat Flower stamped in Crumb Cake and Basic Black and punched with the Fancy Flower, 5-Petal Flower and Circle punches. SU have just announced (early) that the 5-Petal Flower punch is no longer available - apparently it was going to be retired at the end of September anyway but stocks have run out and they are not replenishing. Such a shame because it is a lovely punch but sadly if you haven't already got it then you won't be able to now. Having said that it is not too difficult to cut out by hand, just not so quick :0) Back to the card - the flowers were assembled and an Antique Brad was added to the top flower, these were positioned onto a strip of Crumb Cake DSP punched with the Scallop Border with a thin strip of Basic Black cardstock at the top. The sentiment from Curly Cute was stamped in Basic Black onto Crumb Cake and cut into a banner.
Times are changing for SU in the UK - a brand new seasonal catalogue will be available on 1st September as will the retiring list from the current annual catalogue. If I'm right, there will be quite a lot of products on that list this year so, if you have a wish list, make sure you check out what's retiring because these products will not be available after 30th September.
