Going, Going, Gone: My Retirment Favourites - Lovely Lattice

Today is my sister's birthday - so Happy Birthday Aimee!!!
Hello Stampers! with just over one week left to get your favourite retiring products (June 4th), I thought I'd share some of my favourite products this week. I had a retirement party last week to celebrate some great products sadly leaving the Stampin' Up! catalogue. I am really excited for the new catalogue, and all the new and fab products that will be available. But, I am still a little sad to have to say goodbye to a lot of my favourites and I wanted to give them a proper send off!! Today's share features a bunch of retiring goodies... starting with the 'Square Lattice TIEF', which is one of my ALL-TIME favourite products - I think I will miss it the most!! It also features the 'Lattice Bigz' die, 'Summer Starfruit Cardstock', '3/8" Stitched Satin Ribbon', and 'Sweet Essentials' stamp set. Lots of fun products, most are already sold out :(
But that also means that they are so loved that people couldn't live without them for all the fun creations that can be made!! For my card, I started with a piece of Basic Black cardstock, then cut one of the 'Lattice Bigz' diecuts and used it as a mask. I had diecut a bunch of all the different yellow colours (So Saffron, Daffodil Delight, Crushed Curry and Summer Starfruit) to have choices for my bits & pieces. I used a piece of tape to temporarily hold my lattice diecut in place while I made my design - then I used Tombo Liquid Glue to attach all the pieces, removed the mask (which you can use for another projects!). I then ran it through my Big Shot with the 'Square Lattice TIEF', I used a 'Candy Dot, and Candy Dot Brad Base' to the center of my flower image, then attached my Basic Black layer to the Summer Starfruit base card. I stamped the Thinking of you greeting from the 'Sweet Essentials' stamp set and added a bow with the '3/8" Stitched Satin Summer Starfruit ribbon' to finish my card!
