July Customer Craft Kits – Gingerbread & Peppermint. Every month I send all my customers who either placed an order over £150, or an order of any size, using the Monthly Host Code, a Craft Kit for them to make up at home. Usually this is two cards, but for July I just couldn’t stop myself from using the Pretty Pillow Box Dies from the new Mini Catalogue for one of the kits. They really are well named. The other Kit was for a card using the Gingerbread & Peppermint papers.
I have to admit that initially I wasn’t sure about the Gingerbread & Peppermint Suite in the new Catalogue, but now I LOVE IT. I especially like that the images on the paper are so easy to cut out, even without the matching dies. You have to love a bit of simple fussy cutting. To keep the colour combination used in the papers, I used an Old Olive card base with a Cinnamon Cider Mat, added a piece of Vellum (cut with a flag end at the lower edge) to break up the Cinnamon Cider and to help bring the focus where I wanted it.
My focal point has a couple of the Gingerbread Christmas Trees, fussy cut and layered to slightly overlap each other and the vellum. A couple of small pieces of Designer Series Paper and a sentiment, either heat embossed or not, your choice, and you are almost complete. A final flourish of some Red Rhinestones and the card is finished.
The Pillow Box is not only ‘Pretty’, but also really quick to put together. I die cut the box from Red Velvet card and, once it was constructed, added a piece of the gold trim from the Simply Elegant Trim pack in the Annual Catalogue. The label for the sentiment is from the Pretty Pillow Box Die set, as are the dies for the Peppermints. These are cut from Real Red and Snowy White card. I was kind to my customers and added Adhesive Sheet to the reverse of the Snowy White card, which makes adding the to the Real Red circles super easy.
See just how easy these are both to put together in the YouTube Live Video I recorded last Thursday. They really are such fun and I am especially enjoying the Pillow Box dies. Just think of all the different papers you could make them in.
I have an ordering special for qualifying orders placed between 1st and 31st August that use the following Host Code:

This is in ADDITION to my usual Thank You Card, Gift and Reward Vouchers. EVERYONE using the Host Code (or placing an order of £150 or more) will receive the August Customer Card Kit.
