SSINKspiration Friday Favorites Retiring Designer Series Paper: Cupcakes and Carousels

Happy Friday!  It's dark and stormy here today so I have something bright and cheery to kick off the day.  Today the SSINKspiration designers are sharing favorite retiring designer series paper and today I'm showing a card using the Cupcakes  and Carousels Designer Series Paper Stack from the Occasions catalog.  This card is also jam packed with other retiring items that you're going to want to make sure to get your hands on before they're gone.

I started with So Saffron cardstock for the cardbase and then added a piece of the Cupcakes  and Carousels Designer Series Paper (retiring).  Next I took one of the Lace Doilies (retiring) and sponged all over the white side with Night of Navy Ink and because of the coating on the doily it gives a really cool watercolor wash effect.  Next I took a piece of Soft Sky cardstock and embossed it with the Big Shot and Elegant Dots Embossing Folder (retiring).

The greeting is from the All Things Thanks stamp set and was stamped on Very Vanilla cardstock with Night of Navy ink before being cut out with the Big Shot and Tags and Labels Framelits (retiring).  I added a little strip of the coordinating DSP to the bottom of the tag to add a little more color before attaching it to the cardfront with dimensionals.  The final touch was to take a couple pieces of the baker's twine from the Cupcakes and Carousels Embellishment Kit (retiring) and tied a bow and attached it to the top of the tag with a glue dot.

This card is so fun and as lots of texture and dimension, and who doesn't need to hear how awesome we think they are?  So important to let people know how we feel and that they're appreciated.
