So much texture!!!

I feel like I mention it a lot but texture on a card can really make it go from nice to FABULOUS! This card is fabulous for sure to me! I love all of the textures with the doily, ribbon loop, and embossed cardstock. Do you think it is too much? Let me know in the comments below if you like texture or not!!!

I started with a Wisteria Wonder card base and stamped the greeting from You’ve Got This in Basic Black on the bottom. Then I took a piece of Cucumber Crush and ran it through the Big Shot in the Elegant Dots Embossing Folder and adhered it to the card on the right side. I added a 1/3 piece of a White Tea Lace Doily to the edge of the Cucumber Crush. You can cut the doily into 3 pieces and really get the most out of each one! 🙂 For the flower, I stamped it from the You’ve Got This Stamp Set in Stazon Black onto Watercolor Paper. I used an Aqua Painter to color in the flower in Wisteria Wonder, Rich Razzleberry, and Cucumber Crush! I love how it turned out with the shading and all. Watercoloring is something that usually something I feel like I either nail it or it’s ehhh! After the flower was completely dry, I layered it onto Tip Top Taupe with Tear and Tape because I like to use a strong adhesive to really hold down the watercolor paper since it isn’t always flat. I added a little loop of Cucumber Crush Lace Trim to the right hand lower side of the flower before adding it to my card front. This is a great way to use those little scraps at the end of a roll or that you trimmed off from another project! Love it!!!

Happy Water Colorin’
