Full Bloom

 Hi there. I've been practising with my Karin Markers and Zigs and made this card today...

I used a few new (to me) products in the making of this card. First of all I'd been noticing this gorgeous textured card around blog land and discovered it was a made with a SU embossing folder that was about to retire. Luckily I just managed to get it and you'll be seeing this texture a lot in the future! 

I stamped and coloured the images with the markers. The sentiment was stamped with Altenew Dark Night, which is a wonderful alternative to black. I fussy cut around the sentiment, although I'm not sure if I. could have stamped it on the card before embossing. 
Stamps:- Stampin Up Flowering Blooms, Butterfly Bouquet, Southern Serenade
Dies:- Stampin Up Full Bloom

I'm sharing at the following challenges:- 

One of my faves

  4. Beautiful! Love the timeless and stylish look of your card. Thanks for playing at AAA Birthday, hope to see you join in with future challenges too. Stay safe and keep crafting!

  5. I hope you enjoy this embossing folder as much as I enjoy mine, Jenny! Such a pretty flower and butterfly! I stamp on my embossing without problem, but use the MISTI. If you stamp before you emboss, make sure the ink is good and dry. It can last a l o n g time on the embossing folder! Ask me how I know!

  6. What a beautiful card. I love that embossed background and I love the sentiment stamped in the navy x.

  7. yes, I have noticed that embossing folder too, such lovely subtle texture. I shall look forward to seeing more of your cards made with it. Love the overall design of you card and how you have coloured the flower xx

  8. Hi Jenny please can you let me know what a 'DSU' embossing folder means and where you got it....I love it! Thanks very much Mac x.
