Million Dollars in Sales, Oh My!

This is the card I made for my friend/upline Patty Bennett. Last month she achieved 1 Million Dollars in Career Sales. Patty has been a demonstrator for 20 years and was #9 to achieve this GREAT milestone. I am so honored to know her. She is an amazing mentor and friend.

I have been in a “shaker” card mode for the last couple of weeks. For this card I wanted it to be all “gold”. So I took out everything I had that was gold. Sequins, cording, paper, embossing powder, you name it, I used it. I figured I needed to pull out all the stops. Its not everyday you achieve this milestone. Is it bad to realize that we don’t sell the Brushed Gold paper anymore? I only have a little bit left. Also used the Heavy Whisper White cardstock. Love the extra weight. (wish I could say the same about myself……but that’s another story).

The strip of stars is from the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits. You can see on one strip I embossed only part of it. I’ve seen that done a lot lately. I used the Metallics Sequin Assortment, Whisper White Confetti Stars Boarder Punch and Gold Glitter to fill the “shaker” part of the card. TIP: When you think you have enough stuff in the shaker, add more. Mine was lacking. All of the layers are kept together with Glue Dots. Lots of them. The sentiment is from the Watercolor Wishes Card Kit. I made this card a couple of weeks ago and was going crazy trying to find the stamp set I used. I really hate when I do that. I usually put a sticky note on the back of the card until I get it posted on my blog, but since Patty already had the card, obviously that wouldn’t have worked……I thought, I will remember…..yeah, not so much!

You can see all of the layers and the Gold Embossed Leaves. I also added some Pearls. I love all the layers.
You can see my other “shaker” card HERE! Also a tutorial on how I make the shaker part with Fun Foam. So much easier than dimensionals. 

If you’ve been following my blog, you probably have heard me talk about how hard layering is for me. I always think of Kimberly Van Diepen (LOVE her stuff and she does lots of layering). So I did my best impression of Kimberly. I hope I did her proud!

  1. GORGEOUS! From the pics I thought you'd combined Tip Top Taupe ink and CD with the gold accents. Hmm, wonder how that would look in reality. Probably not as elegant as your original. Gonna have to add the glitter ribbon to my wish list! TFS!

  2. Nope all embossed with gold embossing powder. Thanks Michelle!

  3. Absolutely gorgeous, Cindee! I'm sure Patty was thrilled with her card. How could anyone possibly NOT be thrilled with receiving such a beauty? Love your creativity!

  4. Thanks so much Donna! She did love it! Thank goodness!

  5. I love my card and all the love that went in to it!! 🙂

  6. Thank you Patty Bennett! You are such an inspiration to me.
