I always imagined the Touch of Nature set would make a great retiform (or grid technique) card. Now that the set is retiring next month, I wanted to finally get it on paper. This was one of the first techniques I learned as a beginning stamper, but to refresh my memory I followed the directions in Beate’s step-by-step tutorial.
The colors I used are from Kristina Werner’s 15th Color Inspiration challenge. The sentiment comes from another beloved retiring set, It’s Your Birthday. I distressed the edges of the Whisper White and Certainly Celery card stock and added an Aged Copper photo anchor to the card. If you like this Hodgepodge hardware as much as I do, you’ll be sad to know it, too, is retiring in August. The good news is that it’s on sale this month, at a 25% discount!
Thanks for stopping by!
