Since I am off from work today, it's easier to squeeze in some extra time to create and post! Today's card is another edition in the Good Bye series.....it is also a sample that we'll be creating at my Stampers' Club meeting next week. The theme of our get-together this month is embossing, so this card features just that! Like yesterday's card, this is another easy one. Isn't it great when we can accomplish two things at one time?!!
Each flower/circle image was stamped in Chcolate Chip Craft, embossed with the Clear Embossing Powder and then punched out with the 1 3/8" Square Punch. Then the cute little mini brads were added to the center, but since I am out of the SU Bashful Blue mini brads, I used these instead. Not as great a color match, they are by Making Memories. (The Chocolate Chip looks a bit washed out on screen.....in real life, the images are a rich brown, nice and shiny.)
The background of this card AND the main focal points are both sets that will retire. Will miss both, but especially the Dotted Background! (I LOVE my background stamps!!) Oh, and the little mini brads in the center of each flower are not SU since I was just about out of the Bashful Blue mini brads. These work, but are not as great a match as the SU issue brads.....the color doesn't blend with our Bashful Blue as well.
