Falling For You - Last Chance Card!

Hi Stampers,

We made this "last chance" card at my class on Sunday.  I call it a last chance card because all of the products used here except for the cardstock and inks are retiring at the end of May!

Isn't it gorgeous?  And best of all, it took only a few minutes to create.  The stamp set is called Falling For You.  I love the fonts in this one and there are sentiments for any loving occasion - "for the bride & groom", "anniversary wishes", "every heart needs one special person to love", "celebrating with you", and more.

This one uses Soft Sky cardstock for the base.  The sentiment is stamped in Early Espresso ink on a 1" strip of Very Vanilla, flagged at both ends using the Triple Banner Punch.  The background is embossed with the Falling Petals Embossing Folder.  The leaves are die-cut from the Stylish Stems Framelits using Bermuda Bay Glimmer Paper (this was a free Sale-a-Bration item).  The Lace Doilies are printed Very Vanilla on one side and white on the other.  A single flower from the Falling In Love Embellishments completes this card.

This time I used Perfect Plum cardstock, Elegant Eggplant ink and Gold Glimmer Paper.  Here's a tip for using the Triple Banner Punch:  when punching a 1" banner on both ends, cut your strip of cardstock exactly 1" longer than you want the finished banner to measure - the TBP takes off 1/2" from each end.

More and more of the retiring products are disappearing every day, so shop early to avoid disappointment!

Happy stamping,
