Best Wishes and More - an oldie but goodie
Every so often I challenge myself to pull out the retired stamp sets that I just can't seem to part with and put them to good use. And that's what I did here. The leave and flower come from the "Best Wishes and More" set, which is a retired Stampin' Up! set. Also in that set are a heart, a snowflake, a bird, and a couple sentiments, which makes it a wonderfully versatile set. I stamped the leaf in Crumb Cake on a Crumb Cake cardstock base. Then I ran a strip of Bashful Blue (retired) through the Big Shot machine in the Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder (#117335). Once I adhered that to the card front, I covered up the seam with some Chocolate Chip Satin Ribbon (retired) by adhering it with some Sticky Strip (#104294). Then I created the square by stamping the flower in Daffodil Delight on a scrap of Whisper White cardstock, and then cutting it out with my paper snips. I placed a button on my stash on it and tied some thread through the holes. I stamped the leaf in Pumpkin Pie and cut it out, then layered them both on a Whisper White square, which was then matted in Bashful Blue and Pumpkin Pie. I ended up making 8 of these card, and sent most of them out right away as thank you's and thinking of you's.
