Wedding card using Framed Florets and Cottage Flowers Dies

Are you looking forward to an upcoming wedding?  I needed a classy wedding card for a special couple in our family, and I pulled out some retired favorites in order to create this card.   Do you hang on to retired products you know you'll use again for special occasions?  I do.  And I'm so glad I did!  Today's card went together fairly easily because I had all the stamps, dies, and accessories tucked away for just such a use. I used a color theme of Very Vanilla and Sahara Sand, along with dies from the Frame Florets Dies and Cottage Flowers Dies, a background using Quatrefoil Tile Embossing Folder, and a sentiment from the So Sentimental Stamp Set. I also used a retired lace ribbon and retired pearls that I had on hand.  Yup, 80% of what I used today was retired!  Yes, we have newer products to use, and I'm anxiously waiting for my new catalog order to arrive so I can use them, but I needed to put this card in the mail tomorrow, so I worked with what I had.  New or retired, Stampin' Up! products harmoniously work across the product line!

The basecard for today's card is Thick Very Vanilla Cardstock.  Then a layer Sahara Sand.  Then I dry embossed a layer of Very Vanilla using the Quatrefoil Tile Embossing Folder.

I used the Framed Florets Dies to create the oval layers using Very Vanilla Cardstock.  I layered two of the different oval dies from this set to create the center layers for the sentiment.  I used some of the leaves and stems from this set to die cut images from both Very Vanilla and Sahara Sand Cardstock.  I use the Cottage Flowers Dies to die cut open florals in Very Vanilla and Sahara Sand Cardstock.

I finished my card by adding small pearls around the oval frame, and added bows of 3/8" Scalloped Lace Trim as well as Linen thread. The sentiment is from the So Sentimental Stamp Set, and is stamped in Crumb Cake ink onto a Very Vanilla Oval created using the Framed Florets Dies.  Enjoy using your retired Stampin' Up! products in addition to all of the new items introduce in the Annual Catalog released last week.
