Simply Sent Card Elements & More Kit - Thanks x 2

As soon as I saw this kit in the new Stampin' Up! Catalog & Idea Book I just had to have it! The cards are already dry embossed and stamped with Chocolate Chip. I just had to add a few things to them to make some really simple cards.

I thought the price was pretty good too at only $24.95 for 8 cards and envelopes, a 4 piece stamp set, 11 feet of 1/4" Old Olive Grosgrain Ribbon and an Old Olive Classic Stampin' Spot. If you want to see the whole kit scroll down or go to page 168 of the 2009 Spring Summer Catalog.
I hope you like what I've done with them.
Thanks for stopping by!

The other stamp sets I used are Frames with a Flourish, Itty Bitty Buds, Yummy, Sip by Sip, and Polka Dot Punches. I also used our Chocolate Chip Taffeta Ribbon and alternated between Chocolate Chip, Kiwi Kiss and Old Olive Classic Stamp Pads. I did use the 1/16" punch for the scallop holes and the Scallop Punch to layer the scallops on one of the cards. By the way, our Scallop Punch matches the scallops on these cards perfectly!
Here's the embossing detail. It's so pretty in real life. Stampin' Up! told us that they will be having some dry emboss folders coming out this year. I hope these are two of the designs!!Details of the Thanks x 2 Simply Sent Card Kit:

Beautiful job, Lorraine. I didn't realize I needed this kit until I saw your post. You've sold me (and I'm a demonstrator!) Thanks for sharing.
