Farewell to Framed Florets

 Hello friends! So is Spring ever going to arrive? It is still below average for temperatures and I am ready for some warm temperatures. Are you with me?

Today's card is another one that I created for my stamp group. I had to do a special honor to say goodbye to Sahara Sand. I am so sad that this colour is retiring. It has always been my favourite neutral and I am really going to miss it. I am also saying farewell to the Framed Florets Bundle as it is retiring too. Insert sad face here.

I started with a card base of Sahara Sand. On top of this, I added a layer of Basic White cardstock, another layer of Sahara Sand and another layer of Basic White that I embossed using the Timeworn Type 3D Embossing Folder.

On top of the embossed piece, I added the fancy oval from the Framed Florets Bundle that I cut out from a piece of Sahara Sand cardstock. I used both the inside oval and the outer flourished oval. I added these directly to the card front using adhesive. I used the other oval die in this bundle to cut out an oval from some Basic White cardstock. I stamped my sentiment onto this oval using Gray Granite ink. I only just realized how beautifully Gray Granite goes with Sahara Sand. Too bad I won't be able to enjoy this combination. I attached my stamped oval to the Sahara Sand oval using adhesive.

Using the sprig die, I cut out two sprigs from some Basic White cardstock and added them to the left edge of the ovals. I used the leaf dies and cut out two leaves from some Sahara Sand cardstock and added them on top of the sprigs.

On another piece of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the flower images from the bundle using Gray Granite ink. I stamped two of the small flower and one of the larger flower. I then cut them out using the corresponding dies. I added the flowers on top of the sprigs and leaves using dimensionals.

To complete my card, I added some Basic Pearls (also retiring) to the center of my flowers. I coloured the pearls using my Gray Granite Stampin' Blends.

Thank you for stopping by today. I hope you enjoyed this card. I am really pleased with how it came together.

Stay well and keep creating!


Here is a bonus picture of my sweet little angel. When she gets up from her nap, she is not quite ready to face the world. She likes to snuggle in the big chair which we call the snuggle chair. Sometimes it's only for 10 minutes and sometimes she falls back asleep and we stay here for an hour. I love this time with her!
