All good things come to an end I guess. But don’t worry, we’ve got an entire year to play with all these goodies. I know for sure you’ll be seeing the elements of this suite in lots of projects to come. One of which will be my WOW Class to GO! coming later this Summer.

I’m switching up the color palette to show you the versatility you will enjoy with this suite. Isn’t it dramatic? Because I embossed the Blackberry Bliss mat with the new Tasteful Textile 3D embossing folder, I’ve created lots of texture. Card #3 would not be complete unless I add some WOW. The vellum stamping is one of those WOW factors. It gave the elements a nice soft look and feel.

First of all, I chose the Forever Gold Laser-Cut grid. The entire design was built around that element. But, I couldn’t stop there. I pulled a couple of the leaf sprigs and added in some gold twine trim.

It actually was a happy accident when I found that the stitched rectangle die-cut was the perfect size. Not only was it great for the sentiment, but it fit side to side exactly with the gold grid.  Happy dance!!
