Botanical Builders Framelits aren’t retiring either!

Sketch card for Create with Connie & Mary #CCMC403

I’m back with a lovely card (ok so I’m biased lol!) that I made for the Create with Connie and Mary Sketch challenge using Botanical Builders Framelits to create that beautiful, colourful flower. I am sooooo happy to say the framelits are not retiring when the current Spring/Summer catalogue retires. They are carrying over to the new annual catalogue in June – woohoo! Well best get on with the show – here’s the sketch my card is based on.


As usual my card is a CAS card, but I’m happy with the way it turned out!

Botanical Builders from Stampin' Up! Tracy May #CCmC403

I used Softly Falling embossing folder to create a patterned background and to break up the white a little and soften the overall look of the card. I used the retiring Fun Frames embossing folder to emboss a piece of the Neutrals Designer Series Paper stack and then cut it out. I stuck a square of Whisper White stamped with the sentiment from Another Thank You (retired and unfortunately now sold out in Europe) and a small flower from Botanical Blooms, which is also carrying over to the new catalogue.

I love the pink and yellow with black and white for the colour scheme – don’t you?

Thanks for stopping by, make sure you pop by the Connie and Mary Challenge Blog to check out the rest of the design team’s gorgeous projects!


Also make sure you check out the retiring list (link in side bar). Some items are already sold out. Once they are gone they are gone!
