Grandma's Rocking Chair - May 3, 2015 - Card Design

Today I had my Retirement Open House party and we had a great make and take.  Someone asked how do I design my cards.  Well this card I had worked on for about 3 days.  It came from an example from a Stampin' Up! card and I changed it up a little to add my style.  I had a few versions before I came up with one I liked.

This is my first one that I did.  I wanted to use a retiring Stamp Set so I used Just Saying and also I wanted to showcase the retiring In-Colors.

But I also wanted to show off a background either Designer Series Paper or an Embossing Folder.

I added the Perfect Polka Dot Embossing Folder on this one and the Baked Brown Sugar Thick Bakers Twine.  I liked it but I still wasn't happy with it. It didn't show off the embossing folder very well.

So this is what I ended up with.  You have more of the embossing folder and you have all the colors and the Baker's Twine.

They could use any of the retiring In-Colors to make the card and also any of the retiring Thick Baker's Twine.  They really like it.
Here are the products we used.

Everyone at the Open House really like the card and I hope you did also.
