I was happy to use the sketch at CAS(E) This Sketch as inspiration for today's card.
I am continuing my exploration of Petal Palette, a gorgeous set that I bought from the new Occasions catalogue. This card uses not only the stamps but also the co-ordinating dies (Petals and More) and embossing folder (Petal Pair).
This card is a rarity for me, made as it is from a single sheet of Heavy Whisper White card, with no extra layers or inserts. I have embossed straight onto the card front then picked out the design by softly (and carefully) sponging on Blushing Bride and Pear Pizzazz. This sponging was a technique I was shown by my upline's upline - so I guess my Stampin' Up grandmother - Pauline.
The embossing folder is just the right size to emboss the back flap of the envelope perfectly.
Since I'm playing with my new stamps, dies and - newest of all - embossing folder, I'm going to also enter at Just Add Ink's Challenge too.
Update: Delighted to get an Honourable Mention at Just Add Ink this week!
