Going Global... Happiest Birthday Wishes

Here's a great masculine birthday card today....  Well, really, it could be given to any adventure-minded soul for their birthday (man or woman!).

We start our card with a Mossy Meadow card base.  Mossy Meadow is one of the 2014-16 In Colors that will retire on May 31 - the other retiring In Colors are Hello Honey, Lost Lagoon, Tangelo Twist and Blackberry Bliss.  

Make sure to get your retiring 2014-16 In Colors before they are gone forever.  The In Color items (card stock, ink pads, ink refills, markers and ribbon) always sell out quickly (I'm honestly surprised some are still available!).  Order yours today here!

Next, we added a Very Vanilla piece embossed with the Stylish Stripes Embossing Folder.  This embossing folder is just one of the many other items retiring on May 31.  Stamp Sets are guaranteed to be available until May 22; all other items are only available while supplies last.  Check out all of the retiring items here.

Next, we added a strip of Going Places Designer Series Paper (DSP) mounted on top of a strip of Mossy Meadow card stock to our card front.  The Going Places DSP is also a retiring item.  Check out all of the interesting patterns in this DSP below.

Finally, we stamped "happiest birthday wishes" from the Watercolor Wishes Card kit (in Hello Honey ink) and the compass from the Going Global Stamp Set (in Mossy Meadown ink).  We punched the compass out with our 2" Circle Punch.  Unfortunately, the Going Global stamp set is another retiring item.  There are so many great, retiring items - see them all here
