Zip a 2 3/4 x 3 1/2 piece of Whisper White card stock through a die-cutting machine with the die from the Tasteful Backgrounds Dies, positioned in the lower left corner.   Wrap a piece of Crushed Curry 3/8″ Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon about 1/4″ from the top, securing in the back with Snail Adhesive.

  1. My favorite way of adding texture is to use embossing folders and then to apply a little color lightly on top with a sponge or brush to enrich the embossed design.

  2. Love, love, love the unconventional colors and all the wonderful layers, each one adding another layer to the beautiful card.

  3. My favorite way to add texture to my cards is heat embossing, not only because it raises the heat embossed item up but because of all the gorgeous embossing powders available.

    I was so surprised when I read that the DSP was your background, I thought it was water colored by you and it is gorgeous. Your card is a true work of art. Using the negative of the die is genius.
    The second card is outstanding, I LOVE the colors. TFS.

  13. Love this sentiment, love this layout, love this paper! ♥

  14. Cynthia D. Howard

    I love the two cards on your e-mail today. I have the paper with the Brusho background and i love the flower cut outs on this card, so I have to add that bundle to my list. The crumb cake and mint green heart card is so soft and elegant looking. I would have never thought to put crumb cake and that light green together, but it’s very pretty together. Thank you for sharing your talents with all of us, Mary.

  15. I wasn’t totally sold on this stamp set on my first time through the catalog, but those dies! Such a pretty card. Anyone who would get this card in the mail would smile from ear to ear!
