Wishing you Peace with a Meditating Sloth

What better way to remind you that a wide swath of Designer Series Papers are about to retire than to make a “wishing you peace” card that showcases three of them (and, incidentally, showcases a sentiment from a retiring stamp set? I’m happy with this one and hope it will push you to take one more look at the retiring papers – some are discounted and all are showcased at the base of this post. These papers will be retired on April 30 or when supplies run out. Here’s my card:

Can you spot all three of the mostly black-and-white patterns I’ve showcased on my card? I’m not even going to make you answer – I’m just going to show you (I’m such a pushover). The meditating sloth is cropped from a page of the Zoo Crew Designer Series Paper with a Stylish Shapes square die. Here’s a look at the colors and patterns in the Zoo Crew Designer Series Paper:

Here’s a look at the colors and patterns in the Rock & Roll Designer Series Paper

Rock & Roll Designer Series Paper, Stampin Up! 162695This is such a great pack of papers – the guitars and boomboxes are great, but the other patterns can be used for nearly any other type of card.

To add a little extra “umph” to this card, I added three 1/2″ strips of a page from the Delightfully Eclectic Designer Series Paper, a DOUBLE BACK of Designer Series Papers for a variety of occasions. Here’s a look at the colors and patterns in this pack:

The sentiment on my card is pulled from the brilliant-and-beautiful Hills of Tuscany stamp set – perfect for this meditating sloth and perfect to remind you that the stamp set will soon be unavailable. Here’s a look at Hills of Tuscany:
