Earth Day Card for Festive Friday

What better way to celebrate Earth Day on April 22 than to send an Earth Day card to some who truly does make the world a better place! It’s time to play at Festive Friday – Home of the Inspo List!

For this week’s challenge,  we are inspired by Earth Day.  Remember – at Festive Friday, you do not need to actually celebrate the occasion.  Your goal is to simply use three or more items from the inspiration list on your project.  I used blue, green and a globe on my card this week.  I can’t wait to see what YOU create!

The Stampin’ Schach Design Tips

Today’s card showcases retiring products from Stampin’ Up’s  2020 – 2021 Annual Catalog, namely the Beautiful World stamp set, the World of Good Memories & More Card Pack, and one of my all-time favorite die sets, Stitched Shapes.  Stitched Shapes is a work horse in my stamping stable, and I use it all the time.  Despite the multiple layers,  this Earth Day card is easy to make.  Misty Moonlight and Just Jade make a fabulous blue – green combination, with just a touch of brass for class!
