Saying Goodbye

Most of you may be hopping through this awesome Stampin’ Up! Retiring Products Blog Hop put on by Janet Wakeland, so Welcome! I’m Britney Vanderlaan and I live in North Carolina, US. I love blog hopping! I think it is a perfect way to get some inspiration from all skill levels and styles!


I love layers, stitched shaped framelits and some bling!

At first glance my project just looks like it’s a simple card… but it’s actually a fun envelope card with a gift inside! I started with a piece of Powder Pink 12 x 12 card stock. I have to say Powder Pink is not an easy color to photography lol


The banner is made from a piece of Night of Navy polka dot sheet from Tutti-Frutti designer series paper 6×6 pack. I will truly miss that pack of fun patterns! They can be used in so many ways. Either the fruit side for a fun cheery look or the more solid pattern side which can be used on any type of project!


I layered a Powder Pink large stitched shaped die cut on top of the banner with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Then I used the Petal & More thinlits to die cut the flowers. The large cluster out of vellum and a small flower cluster out of Powder Pink. I added these on with Glue Dots then hid one of the glue dots with a rhinestone.


I stamped the sentiment onto Whisper White with Night of Navy then die cut it with a smaller oval from the stitched shapes framelits. I layered it on top with more Stampin’ Dimensionals. The sentiment is from the retiring Garden in Bloom stamp set. I am very sad to see this stamp set going! Partly because the sentiments are so pretty! Also because the flower reminds me of one on an upcoming new designer series pack!!


I measured out my gift to build the envelope perfectly around it. I used the envelope punch board to create the envelope. I then sliced off one side of the envelope so that I had that package look.


To add the silver and white baker’s twine I punched a 1/8″ hole punch into Powder Pink card stock then punch out with 1/2″ circle punch. I thread the twine through the hole and tied a double knot. I then added a Stampin’ Dimensional on top to keep the twine down and to attach to the envelope.


My gift inside is this face mask from Bath & Body Works. I just thought the colors were perfect fun to use as inspiration.


The inside of the envelope card uses the same idea as the outside but with a few changes. I put a layer o Whisper White card stock then I layered the same designer series paper from the front, from Tutti-Frutti pack. Before I adhered them to the envelope I added my ribbon around and did my slide bow.


I then added another Powder Pink large oval using the stitched shapes and the flower clusters. Well that rhinestone has a mind of its own… it was on the middle of the flower to hide the glue dot! HAHA

The sentiment is the inside sentiment that goes along with the front one. I used the Clasic Label Punch for the inside sentiment. Those were from the Garden in Bloom stamp set. Again it’s retiring so if you don’t have it and love it then go grab it up before it leaves us forever! 😦 It’s such a fun set to use!
