Today I had a play with some of my preorder goodies from the new Occasions Catalogue that will be starting on 28 January, 2014. I have made a simple and fresh thank you card using the flower image from the new 'Happy Watercolor' stamp set stamped onto a tag. This image is fabulous for colouring in whatever manner you prefer.
One of the great new products is the Scalloped Tag Topper punch that produces the scalloped top and opening on the tag in one simple action. You can trim the card to whatever length suits your project. The width of the tag needs to be a scant 2 inches to slide into the punch and I have cut the white layer slightly narrower so that I could mat it on the Calypso Coral base.
Another new item I love is the gold washi tape. It comes as a set of 3 rolls with the spots, stripes and solid in different widths. The bottom section of the card has been embossed with new 'Decorative Dots' embossing folder which is one of the FREE products that you can choose during the upcoming Sale-a-bration promotion that also commences on 28 January.
For the inside, I've added a base of Crisp Cantaloupe and the Whisper White has been finished with a small section of embossing and the gold striped washi has been folded in half to create a narrow border. The cute little flower comes from the new 'Petite Petals' stamp set and punched out with the matching punch.
