I really love the simplicity of this sympathy card and I will be mourning the loss of the products used the create it. Yesterday Stampin’ Up! posted the retirement list and the Crumb Cake Note Cards (133766), Floral Affection Embossing Folder (#141713), and Affectionately Yours Specialty Designer Series Paper (#141632) are all on the retiring products list and only available WHILE SUPPLIES LAST. I love these products! The good news is some of these are on sale so you can take advantage and get a good deal! Don’t wait though as retiring products tend to sell out fast (especially if they are on sale)!
The base of my card is a Crumb Cake Note Card. You’ve heard me say before how these are such a great deal (20 note cards & envelopes for $6). I added a layer of Whisper White which measures 3 x 4 1/2. I embossed this piece with the Floral Affection Embossing Folder and adhered a layer of 1 1/4 x 3 DSP along the left edge. I stamped the sentiment from Flourishing Phrases Stamp Set in Momento Black ink (also retiring). I wrapped some Whisper White Baker’s Twine, tied a bow, and adhered this layer to my card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
I have used the embossing folders in this set on several cards in the past. Before they “Rest In Peace” let’s take a look down Memory Lane at some cards I’ve created with the Floral Affection Embossing Folders.
I hope you enjoyed this little trip down Memory Lane with the Floral Affection embossing folders. I will miss them!!! They are replacing the Crumb Cake note cards & envelopes with Very Vanilla so I am OK with that though I would rather just have all 3 colors to choose from. 🙂
