Customer Card Kit Part 2 – Blackberry Beauty for Bruno and Kylie Bertucci’s Demonstrator Training Program Blog Hop. Every month I get to do a few jobs in particular that I just LOVE. They are all around thanking my wonderful customers for supporting me. EVERYONE who shops with me receives a Customer Thank You Pack with a handmade card and little handmade gift.
If the customer uses the monthly Host Code, or places an order of £150 or more, they also receive 2 card kits from me with supplies to make two fun cards. If their order was enough for the Ordering Special, they also get some FREE Product from me. Today I am sharing one of the cards I designed for September Customers to make up. I have already shared the other one, but if you missed it, you can find it HERE. I mentioned that this post is for Bruno and Kylie Bertucci’s Demonstrator Training Programme Blog Hop, so once you have finished looking at my project, why not continue around the Hop. There is a list of who is taking part further down this post.
Today’s card has a very different feel to the first one. I would describe this as ‘elegant’, but it is also extremely simple to put together. This is a simple case of layering up paper and card and adding a ribbon. That’s it, nothing more.
The Blackberry Beauty Papers are so stunning there really isn’t much you need to do to turn them into a really elegant card. Initially I was going to use the Gold Metallic Shimmer Ribbon from the Blackberry Beauty Suite, but this is currently on Back Order, so I chose the Gold Shimmer Ribbon from the Annual Catalogue. I am really pleased that I chose this option, I actually prefer the finished look; it is less ‘brash’.
I hope you agree that this really is all these cards need. No fussing, just simple cutting, layering and a short length of ribbon; making for a REALLY short shopping list. I am going to be using this layout again very soon I think. It just works! See just how easy it is to make in today’s Video Tutorial.
I have an ordering special for qualifying orders placed between 1st and 31st October that use the following Host Code:
Orders of AT LEAST £50 (before P&P) will receive the Seasons of Fun Host Stamp Set from the new Mini Catalogue, as a gift from me. AND for every £45/€60 you spend you will receive a FREE Sale-a-Bration Item WHILE MY STOCKS LAST! I will contact you shortly after you place your order I will contact you to ask you which Item(s) you want. At the start of October I have at least one of ALL the items, so there is LOTS of choice (PLEASE NOTE the 12 x 12″ papers will be cut to 6 x 12″ to save on postage, but will be FULL packs). ALL 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 October Customer Card Kit. Please note that there is only one Gift Pack per customer per month.
Video Tutorial Time!
