SAB Simply Sent Stepped Up 4 Seniors!

Have you checked out the free Sale-A-Bration items yet?  One of them, which I order every year btw, is a really fun Simply Sent card making kit!  The kit includes Basic Gray Bakers Twine, 8 pre-printed die-cut cards and envelopes, die-cut stickers and rhinestone basic jewels.6simplysentcardkitonstripeddspcbyu213 Four of the cards are pre-printed with Hello! on the front… the other four are blank.  I wanted to step the kit up a bit for my senior stamping session last week, so added layers of whisper white an basic gray card stock just for fun!1preprintedcardoptionsimplysentcreatedbyuI also added half of a paper doily to give the card a little more pizzazz!  Some of the seniors made the pre-printed version… and others had to add a sentiment to their otherwise blank card.4alternatesabcardkitwithsentimentpunchedIt’s not always easy to center a sentiment exactly where you want it… so for my seniors I used a daffodil delight postage stamped mount for a whisper white 1” punched sentiment using basic gray classic ink.6sabsimplysentwithpostagestampedgreeting Tiny dots of liquid adhesive were used to attach the doily… and a stampin’ dimensional (pop dot) was used to affix the stamped, punched and layered sentiment to the blank pre-printed card bases.3sabcardkitfloweranddoilycreatedbyu Both cards also featured a die-cut layered flower, paper ribbon  and rhinestone basic jewel.5asimplysentpeabodyducksinsidewithflowerWaste not, want not… I also shared with how to recycle the sticker remnants to use on the inside of their cards…5bsimplysentwithleftoverstickersborderinsideWe added a 5.5” x 4.25” piece of basic gray and a 5.25” x 4” piece of whisper white card stock to the inside/back of each card.  My reasons were two fold… this way they had two opportunities to get their inside images stamped correctly… as they could turn over the whisper white card stock and use the back side if it didn’t work the first time.7exteriorsabsimplysentviewoncreatedbyu As an added bonus, the back side of the card was quite pretty too… don’t you think?

I hope you enjoyed today’s simply sent “Happy Hello” card kit samples for my senior stamping sessions!  This kit is free of course, when you place a merchandise order of $50 or more at my online stampin’ up store!  Just look for the Happy Hello Simply Sent Card Kit or use item # 130149.

Thanks for stopping by my little blog today, I look forward to reading your comments!

How pretty! love the "flat-style" flower-ish embellishment with those 3 layers. It looks great and will mail easily, too! Your red and ivory Valentine below looks great, too! (((hugs)))
