Crumb Cake is … Yummy!

monogramFor some foolish reason I have treated Crumb Cake cardstock like a red-headed step child. It’s been filed in the back behind all of my other Color Collections. It’s been out of sight and neglected. I just haven’t given it much thought. But not anymore! On a whim I pulled it out for this card and I fell in love with the way Marina Mist and the embossing worked with the color of Crumb Cake. Beautiful. Classic. Natural. Lovely!

untitledI was following a sketch by the Paper Players … but I didn’t submit it in time for the challenge. Again. Second time this week. Ugh! Can I blame it on being distracted by our beautiful snow? Well … that’s my story and I’m sticking to it.

Features of this card

Heat Embossing:
The fern is embossed with clear and the monogram with black. It’s ok to emboss with more than one color per project.
I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the way clear embossing looks  on Crumb Cake!

Adding Dimension:
Stampin’ Dimensionals

What would I do without them? The flower from Crazy About You was stamped twice with Marina Mist and punched out with the Flower Medallion punch. I arranged one punched flower on top of the other with a twist so that the petals from the bottom flower showed between the petals of the top flow. The top flower is popped up with a dimensional. And the two, stacked flowers are popped up with another dimensional.

Both Crazy About You and the Flower Medallion Punch are part of a Bundle! When you purchase these together as a bundle, you save 15%. Not too shabby!

Everything was going well … and then something was missing. With all of the popping up going on, it was still falling flat. Hmm … so I pulled out my rhinestones and Daffodil Delight Blendabilities. I colored the rhinestones with the Blendabilties first. Then I added the rhinestones to the card. I placed a mid-sized rhinestone in the center of the flower with the smallest rhinestones encircling it. Ahhhhh. Perfect!
