This week I have decided to feature the stamp set Back on Your Feet found on page 83 of the new Stampin' Up! 2019-2020 Annual Catalog.
Do you remember how you knew in a conversation that someone was getting old? Yes, they talk about their aches and pains. I hate to say it, but I'm around those kind of people about all the time now. Yes, I'm retired and age just keeps on creeping up on me. That's why I laughed out loud when I saw this set. I ordered it as soon as I could. If you aren't in my shoes, you know someone who is. That's why I think Back on Your Feet deserves a week. Here's my card for Day 1.
I already know who is getting this card. I don't mean to be calling her old. We all have our down times at any age!
The card base is 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and folded at 4 1/4. Stamp the OUCH! and the SIGH... in Crumb Cake down the sides of the card base.
Add a piece of Daffodil Delight Designer Series Paper that measures 3 x 5 1/2 to the center. This comes from the Brights 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper.
Stamp the giraffe in Memento Black on a piece of Whisper White. Color with the Light and Dark Crumb Cake and the Light and Dark Daffodil Delight Blends. Cut this out with the largest oval from the Stitched Shapes Dies.
Run Linen Thread around the card 2 times and tape down behind where the giraffe will be. Add the giraffe with dimensionals. Put a Linen Thread bow just over the oval. Take 2 lenghts of the Linen Thread that are about 8 inches. Tie knots down the row. Don't pull them too tightly. I rolled a glue dot to put behind each knot.
Stamp the saying in Memento and cut the words apart. Add with dimensionals.
Here is the inside of the card. Just stamp the saying and the giraffe. Color the giraffe just the same as the front.
This card is so cute and it's pretty easy. I think my friend will really like it!
I'll have more cards using Back on Your Feet on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday. Don't miss out on Back on Your Feet Week!
Need supplies to make this card? I can help you with that!
