This final time they are offering a colour challenge. Since it is using a mixture of retiring and current In-Colors, I embraced the chance to join the fun.
I decided to make a square easel card. I had just received my package of sneak peek products from the brand new Annual Catalogue and was "itching" to try some out. I also used a number of retiring products simply because I will miss them when they're no longer current and love the chance to use them now. The Windows Collection framelits, for example, have such a unique shape and add so much interest to my card.
What I love about the easel design is that it really shows off the card. It stands beautifully on its own and can be placed anywhere. I've done quite a bit of fussy-cutting for this card. The butterflies from the retiring Build a Bouquet stamp set, for example, were hand-cut right to their little antennae. I also added a bit of Dazzling Details to the white area on the wings. In person, it picks up the light beautifully, glittering in a variety of colours. The flower is from the brand new You've Got This stamp set and took quite a bit longer to fussy-cut, but the result is worth it.
Here's my card, folded up and ready for a square envelope.
I hope you'll also join in for the final challenge at the Around the World Stampin' Up! Challenge site.
