Hey there. My new card today is wishing for summer to come quicker then it is. But anyway, I think this card may be good for graduation or retirement although I will probably use it for another birthday or maybe anniversary card. Those are in high demand over here. I'll leave it blank until it's needed.
I stamped the Inkadinkado anchor stamp onto Ranger's watercolor cardstock with Versa Mark ink and heat embossed it with platinum embossing powder (also by Ranger). I die cut the image out with a Sizzix die and heavily inked the inside of the image with distress ink while it was still in the die. Then I sprayed the image with water and let it sit to dry.
The scalloped oval and banner were cut out using the Cricut and Bazzill cardstock. I used Lawn Fawn Harold alphabet stamps to stamp my greeting with Hero Arts charcoal shadow ink. The patterned paper is by Quick Quotes and it is cut a little bit smaller than the Recollections card base. The grey cardstock is by Momenta with the border die by Spellbinders. he cording by The Beadery and I had to use foam adhesive on the image because the cording is so thick.
Thanks for looking.
