Have you gotten the new Gray Granite Ink Pad and the matching Gray Granite card stock?!  This color is SO elegant, especially when paired with white! It's my new favorite "go to" neutral. To make the card I started with a panel of Gray Granite and stamped the big beautiful flower image in Gray Granite ink twice, in opposite corners. Then I went to the Big Shot and cut out a window with the middle sized stitched label die. The piece I cut out became....

...the inside of the card. All I had to add was the greeting!

Blended Seasons Stitched Seasons with Delightfully Detailed - 1

On the front of the card, in the "frame" that I created, I added a piece of the beautiful Delightfully Detailed Laser Cut Specialty Designer Series Paper. I attached it to the back of the front panel using the "bonus" outside edge pieces that come with the Dimensionals.

Blended Seasons Stitched Seasons Delightfully Detailed Gray Granite - 7

I embossed the card base with the Subtle embossing folder before I added the top panel.  This amazing folder turns plain card stock into beautiful, textured, linen paper right before your eyes!!

To finish off my cards, I added the greeting from the set and used the Triple Banner punch to create the banner shape. Then I added a piece of Gray Granite ribbon, tied in a knot, and attached it with a Mini Glue Dot. I made 26 cards for the Stampin' Up! Alaska Incentive Trip Swap.

It was truly breathtakingly beautiful!

Our pilot landed the plane in front of the Hole In The Wall Glacier and the Taku Lodge. There were 4 wild bears strolling about the grounds while we waited for our delicious salmon to bake on the open grill.

This is actually a black bear - even though it is brown (they call brown black bears "cinnamon").

While we were inside the lodge eating the bears came to the grill to eat the salmon grease - bottoms up!

We had a lovely hike around the grounds with a guide. It was beautiful. (Our son Joe took this photo of Mike and I, you can see the glacier behind us).
