Today's card is to help send someone off into the sunset, who is retiring. Let's say HI:
I made a card from kraft cardstock as the base. I used Lawn Fawn's Fanciful Frames and stamped a frame onto Lawn Fawn's Petite Paper Pack patterned paper. I used Critters Ever After to stamp the horse (it used to be a unicorn but I didn't cut out the horn). I stamped the horse onto a piece of Lawn Fawn's Bright Sides Collection Kit patterned paper. I pulled out the new Sunny Skies stamp set and stamped the sun and bow on the Bright Sides patterned paper and fussy cut out the border, sun, horse and bow.
I wanted to create a sunset effect, so I pulled out my trusty Distress inks and ink applicator tool thing. I layered 5 colors (yellows, oranges, reds) onto white paper to create the sunset.
I like how it turned out. I also needed a title, and I pulled out the alpha sticker sheet, in the Bright Sides Collection Kit, and adhered the sentiment.
It seemed like it needed a little pop, so I wrote in dots around the letters and wrote in stitches around the card as well.
I hope Sharon enjoys "riding into the sunset" for her retirement.
Thanks for stopping by, have a magical day!
