Two Step Stampin' set a hit!

This is the card I did for my first Hostess party away from the comfort of my own studio! This card and the cute Magnet Coaster Calendar contributed to a great party. This Two Step Stampin' set; "Blossoms Abound" was really a big winner. All but one person ordered the set. I apologize for the yellow appearing envelope. It really is more of a linen color. It just came out a bit more yellow in the photo. The party was a huge success! All total merchandise sales were over 1,300. There were 10 people (mostly family) of this gal and they all really wanted to help her get free merchandise. I even goofed on an order and missed and item on one of the receipts and had to call the gal's mother back to tell her and she ordered $100. 00 more in product!! Unfortunately no one wanted to book another party but this one was good so I can not complain! I really had forgotten how pretty this set can be. Paper used was Mellow Moss & Pale Plum. Inks were Classic Almost Amethyst & Orchid Opulence for the Lilacs and Always Artichoke & Mellow Moss for the sentiment, leaves and branches . Antique Brads and the Ticket Corner punch were used for the corners.

Great card, Sue! I have this set, too and have not used it at a camp yet! I know what you mean about comfort level - I try to have any parties at my home, as well - that way we can make a few more things. Congrats to your hostess on sales! With it being that successful, I'm SURE someone from that group will be inspired to have another party - it's only a matter of time.
