Today’s card is in response to the Fab Friday Challenge to use the outgoing in colours (all, or your choice). Here’s the challenge banner:
I recently took part in a blog hop that challenged us to do exactly the same (see that post here) and I wasn’t sure how to represent this initially. I obviously went to bed with this on my mind as I woke up knowing the sentiment and framelit dies I would use! I decided that as the colours are retiring that I would showcase other things that are retiring. Things I will miss. A lot. I went with my three favourite colours of the five – Baked Brown Sugar, Strawberry Slush and Coastal Cabana:
As is my (quirky) habit with square cards, I went with measurements in inches!
- The base is Strawberry Slush and is 5×5 inches.
- I used the (retiring) Window Frames and if the smallest is #1, the Whisper White layer is #2, Coastal Cabana #3 and Baked Brown Sugar #4.
- I stamped the sentiment from (the retiring) Really Good Greetings in Coastal Cabana and then cut it out using the framelit and the Big Shot. I thought the sentiment was very apt, given the short time left for these colours!
- I cut a square 2 3/4 x 2 3/4 in Whisper White and then layered everything together with Tom Bow.
Hope you like it.
