Floral Fusion Color Refresh CASE

Hey Stampers,

I have some REALLY exciting stuff to show you today !! I have a great video made by Carrie Cudney at Stampin' Up! showing an up close and personal look at the new color refresh !! I am not tech savvy enough to figure out how to embed this video, but here is a ink to it !!

The card I am sharing with you today is a CASE from that fun video !! Didn't you just LOVE those beautiful cards she showed ?? I made the Subtles version ... take a look !!

I am SO in love with this beautiful design, aren't you ?? And I am so happy it gave me a chance to dust off the Floral Fusion Sizzlit Die. Looking at this stunning card, I have NO IDEA why I don't use it more often !! Aren't those flowers just delicious ?? I cut out the die using Wisteria Wonder, Blushing Bride, Calypso Coral, So Saffron and Pool Party card stocks. Then I used my Bone Folder to really fluff up all of the petals. I adhered them together using Dimensionals so they have LOTS of pop !! I did add a Rhinestone to the centre of each one (though the original card didn't have them) and I really like the look ! SO so beautiful !!

My card base is a piece of Crumb Cake. I stamped the front half with my Distressed Dots background stamp, also in Crumb Cake ink. I then trimmed 1/4" from the front flap, so my Whisper White Large Scallop Edgelit could peek out of the bottom. LOVE that look !! The thank you sentiment is from the awesome Sassy Salutations stamp set. I just love that funky font !! I stamped it in Early Espresso ink  onto my card base. Then I just added my row of flowers with some Glue Dots ! Very simple but SO stunning !! Am totally loving this card !!

Well thats my project for today. Please check out that video ... it really got me excited for the new Color Families !! Thanks a lot for coming by today and Happy Stamping !!
