My hubbie asked me to make a card for one of his friends who was turning 65 last week. He is very fond of bush walking, so I decided to use the Waterfront stamp set, the Woodlands Embossing Folder, the Stitched Shapes Dies and the Layering Ovals Dies, all of which will retire with the 2020-21 Annual Catalogue on 3 May. I also used the retired stamp set Number of Years and the Coordinating Dies, which retired a few years ago, but I find perfect for special birthdays.
Colours I used were Shaded Spruce, Early Espresso, Misty Moonlight, Bumble Bee and Very Vanilla. I added Wink of Stella liberally but it is hard to see in the top photo, you can see it better in this photo, so pretty.
I was really happy with how this card turned out, I hope it inspires you. I am a bit sad to say goodbye to these products as they are some of my favourites, but I am looking forward to all the new goodies that will appear in the new catalogue.
Thanks for stopping by, til next time,
