Crazy About You Mother's Day Card

Continuing to share products that I will miss once they retire. The Crazy About You is another stamp set I'm sad to see go. Actually, it's one I won't part with just yet. I love all the little words in it - perfect for memory keeping!

We made this card at this months card class. Never too early to be prepared for the next occasion:) It's hard to tell from the photo but the front is about 3/4" shorter than the back to show that little peek of pattern paper.

Here are a few tips if you want to recreate this card:
  • Card is 4-1/4" x 10-1/4" scored at 5-1/2".
  • The embossed layer measures 4" x 4-1/2" and embossed using the Falling Petals embossing folder.
  • When stamping solid images like this, especially if they are photopolymer, be sure to use a stampin' pierce mat for a nice crisp image.
  • Patterned paper strip measures 1" x 4-1/4" - this piece is from the Falling in Love dsp which is already sold out:(
  • The vanilla button I used here is actually retired but we still have the classy designer buttons which could be used in place of it. Although those are also retiring.
  • There are two layers of ribbon - sweet sugarplum ruched ribbon and the vanilla satin ribbon. Both are actually on sale right now (while supplies last).
Do you have a favorite item you are sad to see retire?
