A simple card with the stamp set On To Adventure. Perfect for retirement, well wishes for vacation or any other occasion. I design this card for a group that we share projects each month.
This is a combination of coloring with Stampin’ Blends and sponging.
- Whisper White thick 11 x 4¼ score at 5½ card base, 5 x 3¾
- Old Olive 5¼ x 4
- Basic Black 1½ circle punch out
Step by steps
- Stamp both man and the woman using Memento Black ink on to whisper white thick cardstock 5 x 3¾
- Color with Stampin’ Blends
- For the background sponged Old Olive at the bottom. I didn’t mask I was careful around the couple. Top sponge with balmy blue in.
- Stamp the greeting using Balmy Blue ink.
- Cut the 1½ basic black circle in fourth.
- Adhere a fourth in each corner.
- Adhere Old Olive to the card front then the Whisper White stamped and sponged on top.
- Inside stamp Happy retirement using Old Olive.
Detail of the sponged background
The background I sponge lightly. I didn’t mask the little couple so I just sponge lightly around. If you are afraid to add color on to the couple when sponging you can use a mask. What is a mask? You just stamp on a post-it note and hand-cut. Place the cutout on top of the stamped image and do all the sponging then remove. With a mask the sponging goes fast and no worries to sponge over the little couple.
They sure look like they are ready for vacation. I think we are all ready for a little sunshine and vacation at this time. Well, I know I am ready, are YOU?
