Today's card is inspired by Colour Me Challenge #68 and the Deconstructed Sketch #198. The challenges were paired with some of the supplies that will be retiring from the Stampin' Up! catalogue at the end of May. One of the sets I'm most sad to see go is Just Sayin' (and the matching Framelits *pout*) It's a cool, fun set that I've used quite a lot on its own or paired with other sets. Here, I paired it with Around the World. I also wish the Dictionary background stamp wasn't leaving, but unfortunately it is.
Retiring items highlighted on this card:
- Around the World Stamp Set
- Just Sayin' Stamp Set
- Dictionary Background Stamp
- Stamp Punch
- Word Bubbles Framelits Dies
- Crushed Curry Chevron Ribbon
TIP: As I was putting the card together, I decided I wanted to stamp the card base with something, so I pulled the arrow image from the Around the World stamp set and created a frame around the card with it. Once I layered the other elements on top of the card base, I felt it was too busy, though. To save on work and cardstock, I then simply folded the card inside out so that the frame is now inside of the card. That way, the inside is decorated and I was able to start over with my card front without losing any cardstock!
