I love the look of white embossing on Crumb Cake cardstock.  The All My Love 12×12 Designer Series Paper sets the color combination for this card.  The color to my stamped images has been added with our lovely Stampin’ Blends Premier Alcohol Markers.  They are a staple in my craft room and I don’t know what I would do if I didn’t have them….well, I would watercolor, but I love the blends just as much.

#GDP156 – Stitched All Around Wedding Card

Stitched All Around Bundle by Stampin' Up! Best Wishes Wedding Card by Stesha Bloodhart Stampin' Hoot! for #GDP156 Case the Designer

Happy Monday Everyone!

The Global Design Project has an amazing challenge for you this week!  CASE = Copy and Selectively Edit the talented designer Kerstin Kreis.  Although my card looks quite a bit different than hers, I took my inspiration from the flowers (Love What You Do) and using an embossing folder for my background (Tufted).

I had a wedding on Saturday for my cousin and their colors were Navy Blue and Dark Gray…so I based my card on the colors for the wedding and went from there.

The Tufted Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder makes a statement all on its own.  It really stands out on the Galvanized Metallic Paper.  All the stitched goodness paired together on the card pulls your eyes in and keeps them occupied.  The Stitched All Around Framelits and coordinating stamp set are at the top of my list for must-haves. Do you have them?
