Madison Avenue Friends

Stampin' Up! Sale-a-bration Madison Avenue Stamp Set Friends Card

Are you excited for Sale-a-bration? Tomorrow is the big day kicking off Stampin' Up!'s annual party with loads of free products. Yippee!

I created this card for a shoebox swap we held during Leadership in Orlando. There were about a dozen of us getting in the spirit of things by stamping, chatting, and general silliness the night before check-in day.

Our theme was simple: Cards using new Spring Catalog or Sale-a-bration products, which is what I chose. I paired the Madison Avenue stamp set with Sycamore Street Designer Series Paper and the Ribbon & Button Pack. I love the paper (really pretty patterns) and the ribbon is beautiful with a shiny look and satiny feel.

Notice the embossed design on the side? That's one of two designs in the Needlepoint Border Embossing Folders in the Spring Catalog. To mimic the embossed scallop border, I added a little scallop edge to the focal point using the Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border Punch.
