Or you might call this a fond farewell letter! I've pulled together a few of my favorite (retiring) Stampin' Up! products for this sweet card. All of the patterned papers are from the Newsprint Designer Series Paper collection. I love the music sheets!
The scrap of Real Red card stock was texturized using the Square Lattice Embossing Folder run through the Big Shot. It truly looks like a piece of fabric (burlap?) in real life. Speaking of red ... I have the hardest time photographing red. It usually looks too orange or too bright. I can always tone it down through photo editing, but if anyone has any tips for me - PLEASE share them. Thank you. We now return to our regularly scheduled program. Hee!
The little square was created using the new Postage Stamp punch. The piece behind it was created using the Scallop Rectangle Clearlit; similar to the sizzlits dies for the Big Shot. Because it's clear it allows you to cut precisely where you want on designer paper or a photo.
The little bird is one of four rubber stamps in the Punch Potpourri Hostess Set and coordinates perfectly with the Two-Step Bird punch. I embossed it using VersaMark ink, black embossing powder and the heat tool. The sentiment, from the Apple Blossoms Hostess Set, was actually the inspiration for this card along with the designer series paper!
