This week I am going to focus on some of the products that will be retiring May 31st. Some products will be gone before the end of May since they are "while supplies last." It's so exciting to think about new products coming, but still it's a little sad to say goodbye to some old friends. Today my card features the Petal Passion Designer Series Paper and the stamp set Watercolor Words. Both will be going away.
When I started this card, it was to be a study in black and white. You can see that's not what happened. Out came my blends and I just could not stop. I had not colored this particular piece of the Petal Passion paper. It just looked like too much work. This was so easy! The paper is already shaded. I just colored with a color and not really blending. I think it looks great. The colors used are Dark Daffodil Delight, Light Calypso Coral, Dark Pool Party, Dark Pink Pirouette (retiring), and Light Old Olive.
The card base is Thick Whisper White measuring 5 1/2 x 8 1/2. Score at 4 1/4. Burnish the fold with your bone folder.
Cover the front of the base with the Petal Passion designer paper. Cut it at 4 1/4 x 5 1/2..
Once colored, stamp the words on a piece of Whisper White in Memento Black ink. Use the Layering Ovals Framelits to cut this out and attach to the middle of the card with dimensionals.
I told you that I just couldn't stop coloring, didn't I? I colored more flowers and leaves from more paper. Snip these out and decorate the outside of the oval. Glue the pieces that are over the oval and use dimensionals on the parts that hang off the side. So pretty!
Maybe you never make a mistake. Can you tell what I did with this card. Of course you spotted it. I did mess up stamping the sentiment inside. I just stamped on Whisper White and cut it out with the Layering Circles Framelits. I love the font used with the Watercolor Words stamp set. Color and add more flowers for the inside.
The dimension doesn't show very well in the pictures. This card is so beautiful in person! There's nothing better than a beautiful black and white designer paper. I'm not sure how Stampin' Up! can top this!
