Retiring In Colours for Fab Friday

Hello!

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:

Fab Fri 63

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.

  1. The little layer of Whisper white behind the BBS layer really caught my eye! What a neat way to highlight this framelit shape! So sorry that these will be going too! They were just right for square cards! Thanks for sharing at Fab Friday!
