Creative Circle Design Team - Saying Goodbye (retiring favorite)

Happy Wednesday!

Welcome to my first Creative Circle Design Team Blog Hop post. I am excited to announce that I have joined Liz Holloway's Creative Circle Design Team! Thank you Liz for having me on the team.

This month we are featuring retiring favorites. How is a girl to choose one retiring favorite?!?!? I chose two for my card, the Large Number Framelits and the Celebration Time Bundle (Celebration Time photopolymer stamp set and Celebration Thinlits).

So, let's take a look:

The card base is Basic Black with a layer of Gold Foil followed by a Very Vanilla layer. I embossed the stamped image with gold embossing powder, die cut it with the coordinating framelit, and used dimensionals to adhere it. The Gold Glimmer numbers were also attached with dimensionals. I am thrilled the yummy Metallic-Edged Ribbons will carry over to the new 2018-2019 Catalog. An elegant card deserves an equally elegant envelope--the sentiment was also gold-embossed on the front of the envelope.

This card design could easily be replicated for an anniversary card by changing the sentiment. The Large Numbers Framelits are very versatile. I have used them for anniversary, birthday, and graduation cards, as well as birthday invitations.

Now a look at the inside:

I kept the inside clean and simple with an embossed sentiment.

Waste not, want not:

I used the negative from the die-cut 50 to decorate a treat bag.

That's all for me this month. Please hop along to see what the rest of the Creative Circle Design Team created.

Thanks for stopping by--happy hopping!

Bravo, Lisa! I know that you will be a valuable addition to their team. Both these cards are awesome! And I like so much how you used the cut out piece from your '50' dies; how creative was that?!!! Hope things are going well for you. Hugs...
