That's right. On January 1st, Stampin' Up! will be retiring many of their dormant sets (see full list below). Included in this list is Central Park- a set of three stamps that includes a floral silhouette (used in this card) and some leaf images.
I simply love this set (see it in another post here)and I am sad to see it go. I decided I needed to ink it up one last time.
Some notes about this card:
- I clear embossed the image onto Whisper White before using a sponge to apply Crushed Curry, Really Rust, Ruby Red, and Rich Razzleberry (from bottom to top). TIP: Be sure to start with your lightest color and work your way up.
- The sentiment, from Garden Greetings (another retiring set!), was inked using Basic Black and cropped using the word window punch.
- To add some pizzaz, I created a flower using Rich Razzleberry Polka Dot Grosgrain. I simply snipped each end of the ribbon and pulled the top thread on either side to cinch it up. I used glue dots to secure it.
- A More Mustard (kind of close to Crushed Curry, right?) button was used to dot the center.
