You Mean the World

Do you have someone in your life who you can't imagine living without? I hope so, because they are the people who make our journey through this world worth it. The events of the past few weeks have reminded me just how important it is to have close relationships.
Today's project is one that was designed with men in mind, but could really be sent to just about anyone.

The heavy lifting on this card is done by the beautiful World Traveler TIEF (retiring!) and lots of layering of colour. I began with a piece of Very Vanilla card stock which I ran through the Big Shot with the World Traveler TIEF that had been inked with Lost Lagoon (retiring In Colour!) ink. Then I sponged the continents with Crumb Cake ink all over. I added Soft Suede ink along the edges of each continent and lightly sponged the Lost Lagoon sections too. Using a dauber, I then lightly sponged the lines of latitude and longitude, as well as the edges of the continents using Versamark ink. I heat embossed in gold.  To distress it a little, I tore the top and bottom edges of the embossed panel, sponging the torn edges with Soft Suede ink and then dipping them in gold embossing powder and heating them. I adhered the completed panel to a card base of Kraft card stock.

The sentiment is from the Going Global stamp set (also retiring!) and is heat embossed in gold and then punched using the Washi Label punch (also retiring!!). I adhered it to the front of the card along with some gold baker's twine (also retiring).

On the inside I added a Very Vanilla panel on which I stamped the globe from the Going Global set in Crumb Cake (stamped off once). I heat embossed in gold the sentiment from the Sky is the Limit (retired SAB) stamp set.

As you can see, I used a ton of retiring products on this card. So many fantastic items that soon will be gone for good. Don't miss the chance to pick them up before it is too late!
