The Amazing Birthday set (R) is on the Stampin' Up! retirement list and so is the awesome, It's My Party Designer Series Paper stack (R). I will miss both of these items.
This is a quick and easy card and one of my go to sketches. I love the 3 images in a row. I dressed them up just a bit with the It's My Party Enamel Dots(R) and the Baker's Twine Combo Pack(R).
Since I cut the card stock and DSP I decided to make a slightly stepped up version of the card.
Once I stamped the 3 images, I inked them again using VersaMark ink and then embossed it using Iridescent Ice embossing powder(R). I am very sad to see the Iridescent Ice embossing powder on the list of items retiring. I love this technique of embossing over stamped images.
I think this picture shows off the glittery goodness which is the Iridescent Ice(R) embossing powder.
I added some Washi tape to the inside of both cards and added the sentiment. Accessories on the Retiring list are while supplies last so be sure to check the list and order those soon! Stamp sets will be manufactured through May 22 but not after that so be sure to get your stamp order in before that. Click HERE for the PDF of the items retiring. I would appreciate you shopping via my online store and when you do it will get you on the list to be sent a 2016-17 catalog when they become available. Thank You!
