Today's card started off completely different than how it ended up. I was going to do a sketch challenge but wound up doing my own thing with a few of my favorite new goodies. Somehow I am late to the party with the whole Succulent Garden DSP. It is beautiful and it uses some of my favorite (and retiring) in-colors. Here is my card:
This is a square card, not something I usually make. The base is Tip Top Taupe with a sheet of the Succulent Garden DSP layered on top then a piece of Mint Macaron embossed on top of that. Can we take a second to talk about this embossing folder, Petal Burst. How perfect is this with all of Stampin' Up's flowers? Speaking of flowers I decided to die cut the flower from the Sunshine Wishes Thinlets, the top part in Sweet Sugarplum, the bottom also in Mint Macaron. I stamped and die cut the banner from the Banners For You Bundle. During Sale-A-Bration I really stocked up on those bundles that had been on my radar and I am so excited to have so many brand new toys! I finished the card off with a Sweet Sugarplum bow on my flower stem. I also made a coordinating envelope with the 2015-2017 In Color Envelope Paper:
Thanks so much for stopping by today. Head over to SSI to how some of the other Designers are using our embossing folders and which ones are their favorites!
