New Catalog Card Buffet

For my new catalog card buffet, I wanted my customers to create simple yet attractive cards.  Bright Blossoms is one of our newer stamp sets – and I love it paired with the new phrase set Sweet Essentials.  I'm also drawn to the color combination – Pool Party, Island Indigo, and Lucky Limeade!  My customers tried out our new paper piercing templates – LOVE, LOVE, LOVE!!!  Sorry – it is a bit difficult to see in the picture.
 
The larger piercing pad is wonderful too – I'm considering buying an extra one for STAMPING!  You can get a nice crisp image when you stamp on these (before they are pierced!).  The side scallop is from our Big Shot Tasteful Trim die – and the paper piercing template fits this edge to a "t".

At my New Catalog Card Buffet, I served a dessert from my childhood.  It's called Chocolate Dream Pretzel Torte.  The ladies loved it!  Here is the recipe:
 
Jane's Chocolate Dream Pretzel Torte

  • 16 ounces Cool Whip
  • 3 cups milk (I used skim)
