For 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!
I 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
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!

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!
