Flashback Friday - Gorgeous Grunge

At least once a month I post a Flashback Friday, featuring a new card made with retired SU products.  Don't fret, if you are really interested in any of the retired products featured in this post, I (or your local demonstrator) can try to find the product for you.  Just ask and I will get to work for you.

Today, I am featuring a card I made for a young lady that recently graduated from Burkburnet High school and is preparing to attend UT Austin this fall.  I tried to use UT colors for the card.  The stamp set is Gorgeous Grunge, it was retired 1 June 2017.  It was a very popular stamp set  and it is one I will keep as long as I am stamping.  I love to use it to create bold and subtle backgrounds.  Full disclosure this card was inspired by a card I saw on Pinterest last year. 

Card Measurements:
Tangerine Tango base 5 1/2 x 4 1/4
Smoky Slate layer 5 1/4  x 4
Whisper White layer 5 x 3 3/4
Tangerine Tango stars 3 x 3
Silver Glimmer Paper stars 3 x 3

TIP: Use a Stamp-a-ma-jig to ensure the stamps were exactly where I wanted them.  I did not want the lined stamp to appear crooked.  Also, glue dots work best for attaching the Silver Glimmer Paper star to the Tangerine Tango star. (At least that has been my experience).

Thanks for stopping by my blog, Tea and Stamps, today for a little glimpse into popular retired products. I hope you enjoyed viewing my project featuring the retired Gorgeous Grunge stamp set and the retired Stars Framelits.  Below are two similar cards I made last year.
