Goodbye to Artistic Etchings, French Foliage and Vintage Wallpaper

Greetings, Stampers! I know, everyone is really excited about the new Stampin' Up catalog that was released yesterday, but I'm not quite ready to let go of the old one! Remember, you have until June 3 to order retiring products. So I thought I'd offer up another project featuring some retiring goodies. Today's card uses two of my favorite retiring stamp sets, French Foliage and Artistic Etchings, and my favorite retiring embossing folder, Vintage Wallpaper.

Taking center stage is the beautiful Faux Patina embossing technique on the back panel. There  is a terrific tutorial on how to do this technique by Angie Leach on Splitcoast Stampers. It's really simple and fun to do, and the finished product is amazing.

The two stamp sets were stamped collage style in various colors onto Very Vanilla Card Stock. One gold glimmer brads picks up on the gold embossing.
