Fond Farewell ~ Golden Afternoon ‘Thinking of You’

Just 3 more days before the  Stampin UP! 2018 – 2019  annual catalog retires and well-loved and well-used  stamp sets and other products retire.  In the last few weeks I been using  my blog posts to share some of the things that are retiring – along with links so that you can put in your order so you don’t miss out.

Today’s card uses the Golden Afternoon Stamp Set ~ along with the 1/2 ” Lace Trim.  This set has some useful phrases, whether you use it for Thinking of You as I have done or Sympathy, Thanks as well as ‘ Hope your Day is as Wonderful as You”  If you are a regular follower of my blog you will know I love greetings with a cursive script and this set has really pretty ones. 🙂

Card base:  11 x 4 1/4 Smoky Slate Card  ~ scored @ 5 1/2

Layer 1: 5 1/4 x 4 Highland Heather Card

Layer 2:  5  x 3 3/4 Very Vanilla  Card 

Ink Colors: Smoky Slate and Highland Heather

I stamped the little flock of birds first – that made sure there would be space for them! then the trees.  Now you could stamp the greeting directly onto the card however if you are a bit nervous about getting it level then using a scrap of card and punching with the Classic Label Punch takes all the stress out of it – and lets face it – we make cards to have fun not get uptight!

To get the background to the greeting I simply punched another label out of Highland Heather card cut it in half and attached it to the back of my greeting with a little Multipurpose Liquid Adhesive before attaching it to the card with a couple of Mini Stampin Dimensionals.

A couple of Basic Pearl Jewels and a bow using the, oh so dainty 1/2 Lace Trim, attached with a Mini Glue Dot and we are done!  Lets hear it for #SimpleStampin!
