Two More Retiring Sets!

 I love this technique! I must confess I don't always save every scrap of paper. Pretty much anything smaller than 3" goes in the recycle pile. However, this would be a great way to use those leftover strips of paper!  For the inspiration card and tutorial click HERE to go to Canopy Crafts blog.         

         I used a Labels framelit to cut the opening and a piece of Baker's Twine instead of ribbon.  

    The sentiment is from the soon to be retired set called Sincere Salutations. Great set of sentiments; I like the script. Definitely a keeper! The background stamp is from the Stampin' Up! set called Extreme Elements, also retiring May 30.  

  The weather here in KC is lovely! I am sitting on my deck listening to my new Carrie Underwood CD, the kids playing, birds chirping and my cat Zoey whining 'cause she wants to come outside. I would bring her outside on the leash but her only collar is a break away one and I am afraid she might see the neighbor cat and "break away".

Hi Rhonda...
I thought Sincere Salutations would be around forever. I can't believe it's among the retiring.

Your card, using SS, along with the background, Extreme Elements is awesome. Love the color combination.

Hi Rhonda,

What a neat effect! This is a great way to use up those scraps. It looks great with the embossed background. Have a great week.

Love this! What a great design! The colors are so bold and beautiful - they pair easily and wonderful together!

You are the one who "showed" me how to do this, with that sweet card--I love this technique, now, too!!!
