My monthly Stamp-In Workshop was supposed to be held in a few days. But, for several reasons, we have cancelled the workshop for this month.
I did, however, have the four projects ready for my girls to make. One of them, which was supposed to be a final tribute to several wonderful products that will be retiring at the end of this month, is the card shown below.
Since the next workshop won't be held now until June -- after the new catalog goes live and after these products are already retired -- I decided to share the card with you. 'cause I think it's cute. And, after all, it deserves its last hurrah, right?
By tilting the top layer of petals and creating the center with a flower-y button, the raised dots in the embossed background and the floppiness of the Paper Pumpkin "grass", you get quite a lot of dimension.
Read the supply list below to discover just which of the card elements will be going away forever, and to find out a maybe surprising product I used for a part of it.
Since I had the Supply List ready for my workshop and the card is easy to put together simply by looking at my photos, I will share the Supply List with you.
