Another Retro 79

Good morning, Stampers! What a wonderful weekend! But I just have a super hard time getting up for Monday! Ugh!! I read somewhere a funny quote that said, "I need another day between Saturday and Sunday". YES!! Wouldn't that be great - lol! Well, it finally cooled off around here yesterday! The days are getting shorter and now the weather is getting cooler... Won't be long! And it rained last night! Woohoo! We needed it so badly and we are supposed to get more! Thankfully I get a massage today! My lower back is killing me! I am looking forward to getting the kinks worked out!

Today's card was inspired by last week's Retro Sketches. This is actually the second card I made using that sketch. I am not quite in the mood for Christmas but I am working on a Christmas swap and a special Christmas card set for a design team so I was experimenting and playing to see what I could come up with. This happened to be an experiment. I love this very simple, clean lines, modern stamp set called Wishing You. Here are the details:

  • Card base is Chocolate Chip
  • Layer of Crumb Cake that was run through the Big Shot using the Stylish Stripes embossing folder
  • On the layer adhere a piece of Seasons of Style designer paper
  • Over the dsp adhere a piece of Season of Style washi tape
  • Stamp the greeting from Wishing You in Chocolate Chip onto a strip of Whisper White and pop up onto layer
  • Tie a piece of Cherry Cobbler baker's twine around layer and adhere to card base
  • Stamp the packages image from Wishing You using the Baked Brown Sugar, Old Olive and Cherry Cobbler markers onto Whisper White, cut out and pop up onto card
  • Add a rhinestone to the center of the bow on the middle package
Thanks for stopping by and have a marvelous day!
