Global Stamping Friends April Blog Hop So Long, Farewell

Welcome to the Global Stamping Friends April Blog Hop as we say So Long, Farewell to our retiring 2021-2022 Annual Catalog. There are so many favorites on the Last Chance Retirement List, so our Design Team is sharing their projects and ideas to showcase these products one last time. 
For my card design, I decided to focus on the retiring Hand-Penned Memories & More Card Pack to create a no-stamping design. The card pack contains a variety of cards in sizes 3"x4" and 4"x6" as well as sticker sheets that coordinate. I chose one of the 4"x6" cards and trimmed it down to 4" x 5 1/4" to create a card front for a standard size card. I attached the card to a Petal Pink cardstock card base which really helps the Misty Moonlight on the card front pop. To decorate the card front, I added a piece of White Glittered Organdy Ribbon across the bottom and added one of the sentiment stickers from the card pack to the bottom right side using Mini Stampin' Dimensionals, over the top of the ribbon. To add a touch of bling, I added several Iridescent Rhinestones Basic Jewels to the card front, including the centers of the flowers, and I added a small rhinestone to the sentiment label. This pretty clean and simple card design is so easy to put together and is a great example of how you can put together a beautiful card with a few simple supplies and this beautiful card pack.
