My efforts to use up this package of Rebecca Designer Series Paper from 2006 continue. It's amazing how difficult it can be to use up 12x12 pieces of paper when you are making cards. For today's trio, I used some retired stamps and some current stamps as well. To match the paper, I used ink and cardstock in Regal Rose (retired), Close to Cocoa (retired), Chocolate Chip (retired), and Sahara Sand (NOT retired!).
While many of these products are retired, Stampin' Up! offers a great selection of current stamps, papers, and accessories that could be used instead of these images. I hope that if you're in the market for new stamping supplies, you will check out my Stampin' Up! store.
To frame the sentiment, I used a piece of Hodgepodge Hardware. These awesome kits were also available around the same time period as the Rebecca DSP. They contained a number of brads, metal frames, buckles, and fancy paper clips. Each tin contained about 200 pieces. I still have two of the kits.
I attached the metal frame for the sentiment using a piece of pink grosgrain ribbon from the same period. This roll is almost gone! I'm hoping to finish it sometime this week. Maybe then I'll feel like I'm start to make a dent in my stash. Who are we kidding? It will take a lot more than one finished roll of ribbon.
The card base is Sahara Sand cardstock with a strip of Rebecca DSP added to one side and another piece of the pink Grosgrain ribbon attached along the edge. I added the layered image on top.
