Today I have a product focus for you. I am going to give you an insight into the Good as Gold card kit, which is currently on the Year End Closeout sale for just £6.79. This was one of this year’s SaleABration products, and is available to buy for a limited period (very limited if stocks go quickly!). Please be aware that SaleABration products from SaleABration 2015 will NOT be available after the SaleABration period next year – they will not be on the clearance rack, or in the year end closeout, or at any other point. They really will be exclusive and limited edition!
So, what do you get in the Good as Gold card kit? Let’s have a look:
You get 8 of everything in the kits: card blanks, patterned with dots including gold-foiled dots; envelopes to fit the card blanks; gold foil envelope liners (wowzers!); banners with two different sentiments in three different languages; gold foil flags (SU call them tags); small coloured banners; bakers twine, and gold elastic! Not bad for the price, eh!
I sat at my dining table during SaleABration earlier in the year, and made up a whole bunch of these cards – and I ran out of time and energy before I ran out of cards to make!! These cards would be perfect for your Christmas Thank You cards – or stamp your own sentiment banners and have them for whatever occasion you like – you could even use them as party invitations…
Here’s the “serving suggestion” from Stampin’ Up!:
I actually cut a strip off my envelope liners, as you don’t *need* the complete length, and punched extra flags and the like using my Banner punch (another SaleABration product, but one which made it into this year’s Annual Catalogue!), and went to town on decorating my cards in gold! I am not usually a gold girl, I much prefer silver as a rule, but this kit is lovely! I need to get my cards finished off, maybe next week… Somehow I don’t seem to have posted about my Good as Gold crafting session, but I might have a photo stashed somewhere that I could share with you sometime. I will have a look.
In other news, we have our work department Christmas lunch on Thursday, and I need to do some place settings for that (not least because none of them will know what they ordered for lunch!) and then my Pre-Order goodies are due to arrive today. Gary is out for the evening at a WordPress event, so I ought to be able to spend the evening crafting if the twins go to bed quickly and sleep well 🙂 Yay!
Have a great day, and don’t forget to order your Good as Gold card kit(s) if you want some quick and easy crafting (which is completely customisable if you want it to be!) and something to play with over the Christmas period. Gold Christmas? Yes please!
