I'm continuing to feature some of the retiring products from Stampin' Up! Today I am using the stamp set Wild About Flowers. This has been one of my favorites although I will admit that I haven't used it in a while. It's just so easy to make a pretty card with this set. Here is my card for today.
As a demonstator, I get a magazine each quarter called Success. I got the layout for this card from the current magazine.
The card base is Crumb Cake measuring 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and folded at 4 1/4. Find three different woods from the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper Stack. Cut these 1 1/4 x 5 1/2. To get your spacing, glue down the top and the bottom rows and then add the middle. Great news! The Wood Textures paper will be in the new catalog!
Fold over a length of the Berry Burst Finely Woven Ribbon and attach with glue dots.
Stamp the leaves and stems in Garden Green and the flowers in Berry Burst on Whisper White. Cut out with the Layering Circles Framelits. Attach with dimensionals.
The sentiment is from Rose Wonder. That set is also retiring. Rub the area with the Embossing Buddy. Stamp in Versamark and add White Emboss Powder. Use the Heat Tool to melt the powder.
The words for the inside of the card are also from Rose Wonder. Stamp it in Berry Burst. Stamp more flowers.
This card is a sympathy card. It can actually be any kind of card.
