I’m back after having my right knee replaced and feeling great. I’m getting around really well but the stairs still scare me. I’m able to go up and down them but feel more secure when my husband is in front of me when going down the stairs and behind me when coming up the stairs. Now that I’m older, I wish I had a ranch house instead of a split level house. Other than the stairs, I’m doing better than I thought I would. Stairs always scared me even before I had the surgery but more now and probably will until my knee is completely healed.
My card for today was made with two items from the Sale-A-Bration brochure that is still available to earn with a $50 item. Sale-A-Bration will end on March 31st and items are while supplies last. Some of the items have already sold out so if you like todays card, place an order in my online store for $50 or more and select the items used on this card.
This card also features In Colors that will be retiring this June when the new Annual Catalog comes out.
The main focus of this card is the beautiful Country Floral Dynamic Textured Impression Embossing Folder that I think looks stunning when colored with just a touch of ink. I used my sponged dauber to color the flowers with Berry Burst Classic Ink. I also used the same ink to stamp the greeting from the Meant To Be Stamp Set and cut it out with the Layering Circles Framelits Dies. I folded over some of the Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon and layered it under the scallop sentiment that I popped up with stampin’ dimensionals.
The sentiment on the inside is from another Sale-A-Bration stamp set called Part Of My Story which has 6 lovely sentiments. I’m all for stamps sets that have sentiments which is something you can never have enough of.
Berry Burst Card Base – 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 scored at 4 1/2 and scrap for scalloped circle
Powder Pink Layer – 4 x 5 1/4 (cut 2)
Whisper White Layer – 3 3/4 x 5 and scrap for greeting
Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon approximately 9″
This was a quick and easy card to make and not only did I use items from the Sale-A-Bration brochure, but also In-Colors that will be expiring in June. If you like the colors, you may want to stock up now with the Berry Burst and Powder Pink cardstock and the Berry Burst Classic Ink and Refill before they’re gone for good. Also get your Sale-A-Bration items while supplies last and/or before the promotion ends on March 31st.
