Hello paper crafters!

I’m going to be showcasing some of my favorite products that are on the retirement list.  I made this easy, fun and bright card with the soon-2-B retired Lemon Lime Twist cardstock and ink. Here’s my card:

Lemon Lime Zest In Color to retire by May 31, 2019

Lemon Lime Zest In Color to retire by May 31, 2019

How to DIY:

  • Use a half sheet of Lemon Lime Twist cardstock and score in the middle for a card base.
  • Place your card base (the back side of the card) on the Simply Scored score board and start scoring the cardstock 3-4 times. Leave about 1 ” free of score lines so that you can attach a 1″ piece of gingham designer series paper to the front of the card and then flip it to the backside again and continue to score 3-4 lines.  It gives your card an interesting texture.
  • Use Whisper White Cardstock scraps to stamp 2 daisy images and sponge on some Daffodil Delight ink onto the stamped daisies.
  • Use the Daisy Punch to punch out both daisies and use your bone folder to curl the daisies.
  • Glue the daisies alternating the placement of the daisy petals. Use a 1/2″ circle punch to punch out a flower center out of a small scrap of Daffodil Delight  cardstock and glue to the daisy centers.
  • Add a Faceted Gold Gem to the flower center.
  • Use the Leaf punch to punch out the leaves in Vellum.
  • Tie a small bow with the Whisper White Bakers twine and attach with a glue dot.
  • Stamp the sentiment on the bottom right side in Tuxedo Black Memento ink.

Please note that all products in Lemon Lime Twist are on the retiring products list.

Here’s a much easier list to go through if you missed my post yesterday.The list on the Stampin’ Up! website can be a little confusing because they’ve listed the products that are being converted from wood mounted to cling mount so it might be interpreted as retiring. This link contains what is really being retired: Completely-Retiring-Stamp-Sets-2018-2019 with Page Numbers

I hope you enjoyed today’s card.  Just by adding a few scored lines gives this card some added interest to the bright Lemon Lime Twist cardstock.  Remember that items on the retiring list are “while supplies last.”

Have a wonderful Wednesday!  Come back tomorrow for another fun card.
