Celebratory Card with Retiring In-Colors


Karen and I are back with another CASEing (Copy & Selectively Editing) Coast 2 Coast.  Karen, in CA  and myself, in PA,  literally live across the country from each other but have enjoyed taking this virtual cross-country stamping trip each month for several years now.  Each month we take turns choosing our direction and this month I chose to highlight Stampin’ Up!’s 2022-2024 retiring In-Colors.

While I didn’t use these colors nearly enough in the last two years, I think they’re such a pretty color palette.  And needless to say, they’ll still be in my craft stash for a long while.

To create this card I cut a 6 x 1/2″ strip of each color from the 6 x 6 In-Color Glimmer paper pad along with 6 1/8″ strips of black cardstock. After gluing each color strip diagonally starting in the lower right corner on a piece of white cardstock, I trimmed the excess “hangover” paper.  Then glued this panel to a mat of black cardstock before gluing it to a white card base.  The sentiment, from the Layering Leaves stamp set, is stamped in Versa-mark ink and heat embossed in black embossing powder.

The inside is embellished to coordinate with the front by cutting the glimmer strips in 1/4″ strips.  The sentiment is also from the SU Layering Leaves stamp set.  I like that the sentiments can be used for a variety of sentiments, so I didn’t have to commit this card to a specific one at the moment.

Thanks for stopping by today and if you haven’t already been out West to see Karen’s lovely card, please head HERE

Take care,
