When I woke up this morning, I slightly panicked. I didn’t have a card/project for today’s post. Short on time, (like usual!), I pulled out my Big on Birthdays Stamp Set and worked from there. The In Colors for 2015 – 2017 caught my eye and the next thing I knew, I was grabbing my punches to complete the Big on Birthdays Card. What do you think, from starting from scratch? Have you been using up your In Colors 2015 – 2017 supplies? I really am trying to embrace saying good bye. I know many demonstrators are showing off new goodies, trust me I will be doing it soon, but I still want to highlight the items that are leaving. The Big on Birthday Stamp Set, thankfully is moving forward.
Let’s talk about the punches. I used three to complete the card. The Flower Medallion Punch and the Petite Petals Punch are also retiring. Both are ON SALE as well! WOO HOO!! If you do not have them in your punch supplies, you may want to order them before its too late. In between those punches, is the Pansy Punch, which is in the new catalog. I love the layered look. I sponged around the edges to give it some depth and added the awesome mini striped ribbon to the Lovely Lace Embossed Card Stock and my card was complete. The petals are creased inward to give more of a dramatic effect.
A little closer look…
The embossing folder is so pretty. I love the detail. The three In Colors together look really nice and pairing it with Basic Black and Sahara Sand was a look I wasn’t planning. At the bottom of this post, I list all the products I used, plus links to order.
Just a reminder…
