Maxi Hold

I really enjoy the A Muse Virtual Card Club that I host. Each month I have the opportunity to design a card, create card kits and mail them out to the participants in the club. How fun is that!?!?!?

Virtual Card Club members agree to purchase a minimum of $25 of A Muse products each month for six consecutive months. In return, they receive FREE of charge, an A Muse catalog, plus the card kit each month.... and after their 6 month commitment, they also receive $25 of free A Muse merchandise of their choice. How cool is that!?!?!?

If you're interested in joining the A Muse Virtual Card Club, or would just like more information, please send me an email - Thanks!

Oh! And for those of you who don't want to be a part of the A Muse Virtual Card Club, but would like to receive the card kits, for a nominal fee, that can be arranged, too. ;)

I am so excited to show you this month's card - the kits are now on their way to the A Muse Virtual Card Club members' homes, so it's time to show you the card I designed for them.

This card features the Glamour Girl stamp set - the image and sentiments all come from it. There are actually 13 stamps in this set, including lipstick, nail polish, a compact, etc. It's such a fun set.

One of the things I'm most excited about with this card is the hearts. They are actually die cut (black cardstock) using two A Muse Dies. Simply lay the two dies side by side and it cuts a fun little row of hearts. What dies are they? The Pinking Border Die (use the largest one of the three) and the Scallop Border Die (use the middle size one of the three). Isn't that just too clever!?!?!?!?

The designer paper I used for this card is such a gorgeous color - it's called Bermuda. Of course I had to use just a tad bit of it on the image, too (I stamped it on a little scrap and the recipients will cut it out and paper piece onto the image... easy peasy!)

It doesn't show up well in the pictures, but I used a Copic Spica Pen (clear) to add a bit of sparkle to the spray marks of the hairspray. It's also available at A Muse.

The ribbon is an  beautiful sheer polka dot ribbon with black edges. Again, it's an A Muse product, as are the pearls.

Oh... and look at the inside of the card:

You look fabulous!
