I’m a BIG lover of all things layered and textural. As soon as I saw the Country Floral Embossing Folder, I knew I had to have it.  I couldn’t wait to run it through the Big Shot to see the impression it would create. It did not disappoint. I’ve said it before, but I really feel like I need to say it again. The Country Floral folder has to be the prettiest I’ve ever seen.

Let me say, first of all, I’m very sorry that the Grapefruit Grove Foil paper is no longer available. But, that tells me one important thing. There are lots of you out there that have it. So, I wanted to show you how to use it. GET yourself the Country Floral Embossing Folder and run a piece of that gorgeous paper through the folder. You are gonna swoon.

In today’s card I am also featuring the gorgeous Botanical Butterfly DSP, that you can earn for FREE during the Sale-a-Bration promotion. It’s so easy to make a dramatically beautiful card by just fussy cutting one of the large butterflies from the paper.

One of my favorite stitched die sets is the Stitched Labels. That set is so versatile and so many different shapes are in the set. You’ll find yourself cutting and layering them on every project. I cut the largest label in Highland Heather for the backdrop of that lovely butterfly.
