ESAD Retiring Blog Hop

Good evening and welcome to the ESAD retiring blog hop. It is always sad to say goodbye to the stamps and accessories, especially if we have a favourite retiring, but it is also very exciting to know that we have new products arriving.

For my cards I have used the set called Baby Prints. I got the design from a very talented lady called Kristine McNickle. I have pressed the stamp into our clay and let it set. The ribbon is the retired Satin Ribbon. The sentiment is also a set that is retiring. I love the font on this set and will miss this one a lot. It is from Sweet Essentials.

Here it is in Blue:

here is the card with its matching envelope, the inside of my cards match the envelope:

For the next card i have used the stamp set called secret graden. this has been stamped on vellum then placed on Whisper White Card. I have made the gold dotted Vellum myself by making a template with punched out circles and then versa marked over the template and then embossed. The sentiment is also from Sweet Essentials.
