Retro 113

Good morning, Friends! I think I could have slept another few hours! Bring on the coffee! I hope I can wake up this morning and get some things done around here! The last few days haven't been productive ones for me. Although, I did manage to finish my quilted Christmas stockings! Those turned out really cute! I love them!! I am looking forward to displaying them at Christmas! Right now I am in need of some creative mojo! Maybe today??

Today's card was inspired by the sketch at Retro Sketches. Such a fun layout! I decided to pair up my forest animals with the word bubbles again.

  • Card base is Whisper White
  • Adhere a strip of Early Espresso that has been flagged at the bottom
  • On a piece of Whisper White, stamp the trees image from Life in the Forest in black StazOn and color them with Old Olive and Early Espresso markers
  • Take a strip of Old Olive card stock and use the fringe scissors to cut the grass then adhere strip onto stamped panel
  • Tie a piece of Early Espresso 1/8" taffeta ribbon around the bottom of the grass and adhere panel to card with dimensionals
  • Stamp the fox image in black StazOn onto a piece of Whisper White and color with Tangerine Tango marker then cut out
  • Adhere the fox to the card with dimensionals
  • Stamp the greeting from Just Sayin' in black StazOn onto a piece of Whisper White and cut out using the Word Bubbles framelits then adhere to card with dimensionals
I was thinking of graduation when I made this one. Not your traditional graduation card but my niece who is graduating in a few weeks might appreciate this one! Thanks for stopping by and have a super day!
