Make-A-Stack On the Go by Mail

I am so excited about tonight's post, because I've been wanting to offer this type of "stamp-a-stack" by mail for quite a while and never had quite enough time to finish it until now. And to be completely honest, one of the reasons why I was able to complete this today was that we lost power for some time this afternoon, which mean that I couldn't do some of the other things I should have been doing, and actually had time to finish up these cards.

Since this was to be a class by mail, the challenge for me in making these cards was to keep the supplies very limited. As such, these 20 cards were made using 1/2 of the I wish simply scrappin' kit, 10 pages of kraft card stock (for the card bases), 1 yard each of real red 1/4" grosgrain ribbon and kraft taffeta ribbon, and 1 sheet of the Old Saint Nick Rub ons. I used the chocolate chip sheet of rub ons, but the white rub ons would work just as well, with the only difference being some reversal of chocolate chip and whisper white textured card stock.

I think my favorite thing about these cards is that they are all unique and so simple to put together! All you need is your own adhesive. And since we're using rub-ons, there's not even any need for stamps and ink. In other words, this would be an absolutely perfect class for the people who (gasp!) don't want to stamp.

So are you ready to order? Here are the details:

You will receive instructions and materials to make the 20 cards pictured in the photo in this post. Your cards will vary only slightly depending on whether you are using the white or chocolate chip rub ons. All of your card bases will be pre-cut, but they will not be pre-scored (so you will have to fold them yourself). Your textured card stock and designer paper mats (from the I wish simply scrappin' kit) and any additional card stock pieces needed to complete the cards will also be pre-cut, and you will receive 20 kraft envelopes.

To complete the cards you will need: adhesive, scissors and a popsicle stick or bone folder to apply the rub-ons.

The cost of this Make-A-Stack On the Go by Mail class is $25.95 per person + 4.80 shipping for up to 2 kits. Shipping will be $9.80 for 2-6 kits and free for 7 or more kits shipped to the same address. In addition to free shipping, anyone who orders 7 or more kits shipped to the same address will receive a free level 1 hostess set of her choice.

So invite your friends over for a fun night in and get a head start on your Holiday cards. Gather orders at your event and submit them as a catalog show for even more hostess benefits! Contact me at stampwithdiane@comcast.net for more information.

Edited to Add: The instructions for this kit will actually include additional designs that you can make using the pieces you'll have left over from your kit and adding your own card base and envelopes. See this post and this post for two additional designs.
