Pansies Make Me Smile

I just can't get enough of our Pansy Patch Bundle. Whether I am stamping pansies, die cutting pansies from the exquisite Designer Series Paper or I am die cutting and assembling beautiful flowers with dies and paper, I think I am creating flowers that will bring a smile to the faces of those who receive my cards. Tuesday's card utilized lots of favorites from this beautiful suite.

This might be a good time for me to explain the difference between a suite and a bundle. If you turn to pages 28 and 29 in the new annual catalog, you will see examples of each. On page 28, the headline reads Suite/Pansy Petals. It gives the inventory code of 155810 and lists the price off $70.25. That price includes everything that is listed below the headline, eg., Pansy Petal Bundle, Pansy Petal Designer Series Paper, and Bumblebee Trinkets. On page 29 at the very bottom, there is a box whose heading is Pansy Patch Bundle. A Bundle includes the Pansy Patch Stamp Set and the Pansy Dies at a cost of $51.25. A Bundle is ALWAYS 10% off and that 10% is also provided to purchasers of the Suite as well.

The only tip you need to replicate this card is that I used my Gorgeous Grape Marker to color only the words I wanted for my sentiment from the stamp that said, " A little hello from me to you."
