The AGA Card... Part 1 with Perfect Mix...

Well this card prompted the loudest (and longest) audible reaction in a class ever! I really wished I had thought to tape it... as I did have a hunch that it would go down well!!!
Edited to Add.... Tutorial now available. Click here for the details...

Though the 4 funniest things were that...
(1) we were doing our Men's cards in May class... but only 1 lady chose the alternative more manly option!!! More on that another day!
(2) Two ladies are not sending this anywhere... but are buying a frame to display and protect it in their kitchens!
(3) such excitement at my AGA label.... care of Festive Flower Builder Punch (reduced to £12.80 while stocks last) and Labeler Alphabet...
(4)  I wasn't going to buy the Perfect Mix stamp set... SO glad I did!!! It has come in very useful this week... and not just for baking themed cards... more on that another day!!! Though sadly Perfect Mix stocks have just run out... 

So what do you think?? 

I have to admit that this is my favourite card ever (so far) ... and I don't even possess an Aga...

And my favourite bits... actually the combination of the whole thing.... but in the details... oh the covers, knobs (Festive Flower Builder Punch again... though fiddly!) and AGA label of course!! Not forgetting the card fold... and the Irresistibly Floral papers for the tiled splashback!
And yes it does actually fold down flat for posting....
Though I added a bit of ribbon so the recipient has a "prompt" to push/pull that flat top.... and I giggled as ... when I explained the purpose of it... none of my ladies added it for their display version!!!
I will be making a tutorial available to purchase for the 3 cards in this series... hopefully by the end of next week...

Though for UK only... the Trio tutorial will be sent automatically to my downline team members and can be obtained for free for May class attendees... OR ... for everyone else...  free with an online order of £20+  ........ click here for my Online Shop. Make sure you can see my name (Amanda Bates) at the top right of the screen... and enter the current Host Code VQTSBUDV where prompted...

I will be providing "Class in the Mail kits of the Trio including tutorial " - so please email me here asap but by the end of Tuesday 16th May latest if you are interested in one of these...particularly if you and some friends wish to arrange a private class here in North Yorkshire...  As the Urban Underground papers are out of stock in the UK so I will only be able to provide from the packs I have ... nice to share! But a complication for me to work through/price up depending on how many people are interested... It may end up as a First Come, First Served... I also don't know if I can supply outside of UK!?
