Farewell to the 2018-2020 In Colors!

Hello and welcome to today’s card, which is a fun card featuring the Timeless Tulips Bundle and the retiring 2018-2020 In Colors! I really wanted to give these fun and bright colors “one last card” as they will be retiring at the end of the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog, so I thought using the Timeless Tulips Bundle would be perfect for a final farewell card! As excited as I am for the new 2020-2022 In Colors, I’m also sad to see these colors go! They are so bright and cheerful, so why not make a bright and cheerful tulip get well card??

The base layer is Sahara Sand cardstock, cut at 4” x 5 ¼”, embossed with the Coastal Weave 3D Embossing Folder, and then I “dragged” my Crumb Cake ink pad across the embossed cardstock (left to right and top to bottom):

For the rest of the card front, you will need:

1. Use the second largest Stitched Nested Labels Die to cut out of Whisper White cardstock.

2. Stamp the sentiment from Timeless Tulips in Call Me Clove ink on Whisper White cardstock and punch out with the 1 1/8” Scallop Circle Punch.

3. Use enough Call Me Clover Grosgrain Ribbon to tie into a bow along the bottom of the embossed base layer.

4. On Whisper White cardstock, stamp the large tulip in Lovely Lipstick and Blueberry Bushel ink, using the coordinating punch to cut out.

5. Stamp the leaf in Call Me Clover ink on Whisper White cardstock two times and use the punch to cut out (not pictured).

On the die cut Whisper White cardstock, I stamped the small tulip in Pineapple Punch and the medium tulip in Grapefruit Grove inks. I then placed the two punched out tulips on the cardstock to see if I wanted anymore tulips stamped, which I did not:

I created a mask for the small and the medium tulips so I could stamp the stems in Call Me Clover ink:

Leaving the masks on the tulips, I used the smaller of the three leaves in Call Me Clover ink to do some additional fill-in:

Remove the two masks, adhere one leaf each to the large tulips and then adhere with dimensionals:

This piece is adhered to the embossed base layer, the ribbon is tied into a bow, and the sentiment is adhered with a dimensional:

This completed piece is adhered to a Call Me Clover cardstock card base, cut at 5 ½” x 8 ½”, and scored at 4 ¼”:

For the inside, cut a piece of Whisper White cardstock at 4” x 5 ¼”, stamp the sentiment in Call Me Clover ink and the tulips the same color as the card front, starting with the small tulip on the end:

Isn’t this a bright and cheerful card? So, which color are you going to miss the most? For me, it’s a toss-up between Lovely Lipstick and Blueberry Bushel. Now, if you were to ask me what color would be my favorite when they first came out, I would have told you Grapefruit Grove! It’s funny to me how you think one color may be your favorite, but as time goes on, it can change! The only products that are carrying over are the stamp set, coordinating tulip punch, and dies, so don’t forget, all products on the retirement list are only “while supplies last”!
