Touches of Texture

Here's a gorgeous card for you today...  courtesy of our Make-n-Takes from the Mediterranean Cruise.  I wasn't able to make the cards while on the ship and just finally sat down to make them recently.  I loved this card so much, I decided we needed to make it at Bingo earlier this week!

We start our card with a Dapper Denim card base - this is one of our gorgeous new In Colors.

Next, we stamped some "texture" onto our card base using the long textured stamp in the Touches of Texture Stamp Set.

Then, we added a strip of the Moroccan Designer Washi Tape to our card, along with a piece of the Moroccan Designer Series Paper.

We stamped our gorgeous flowers using the Touches of Texture Stamp Set as follows:

-the flower outline in Early Espresso ink
-the splattering behind the flowers in Delightful Dijon ink ("stamp off" this image first on a scrap piece of paper, then stamp on your card stock)
-the small flowers were filled in with our smallest flower stamp and Cajun Craze ink
-the larger flowers were filled in with the slightly larger flower stamp and Dapper Denim ink 

Finally, we stamped "With Sympathy" from the Better Together Stamp Set in Early Espresso ink and ripped the edges of this strip of card stock.  We also added one more piece of Moroccan Designer Washi Tape below our sentiment and then tied a Linen Thread bow around the card.
