Now that the Retiring List is out, I want to share some cards and projects using retiring stamp sets and accessories. This card is made with the Stippled Blossoms set, the Dictionary background, and the Petite Pairs set, all of which will not be returning in our next catalog. All of these sets will be available through May 26th, but retiring accessories will be while supplies last only!
I used the Ovals Collection Framelits, largest scalloped oval and next-to-the-largest oval for this card. First make a card from Pear Pizzazz card stock, then cut out a scalloped oval with the Big Shot from 1/4 size piece of Soft Suede card stock. Using retiring Occasions piercing template, pierce a hole in each scallop, then attach scalloped piece to green card. Stamp the Dictionary image on 1/4 size piece of Very Vanilla card stock and lay the smooth edged oval centered on top, tracing with a pencil around the outside edge. Make a mask out of thin scrap paper with the largest flat flower image and cut out. Stamp the big flat flower at the bottom of the drawn oval with Blushing Bride ink, mask and stamp again next to it. Stamp the detail image in Calypso Coral ink, mask and stamp again. Stamp three small flat flowers at the top of the drawn oval with Blushing Bride ink and stamp the detail image in Calypso Coral ink. Add leaves by stamping the flat images in Pear Pizzazz ink and the detail images in Old Olive ink. Lay the oval framelit that you used for drawing on top of the stamped card stock, matching drawn lines, and run through the Big Shot. Wrap several strands of Linen Thread around the middle of the stamped oval and tie with a bow. Attach to scalloped piece on card. Stamp sentiment in Chocolate Chip ink on a small piece of Blushing Bride card stock and punch out with retiring small oval punch. Attach to card over bow with Dimensionals.
