Pacific Etchings

I wanted to make a card using the Artistic Etchings stamp set and I had a scrap piece of Pacific Point that was already embossed using the Vintage Wallpaper Textured Impressions Embossing Folder .  So, I decided to use some shades of "blue" instead of "red" for this card.  I have found that I really like the monochromatic/dynamic duo look of Pacific Point paired with Baja Breeze.   I ruffled the Baja Breeze Seam Binding, a look that is so awesome.  I thought that the small butterfly image from the Clearly For You stamp set would make a nice accent without adding the bulk of a bow or knot.  Then I had to dress up the little fellow with some tiny Basic Pearls.  It's pretty cool how the embossing folder kind of mimiced the design in the medallion image that I stamped for the background on the Crumb Cake card base.  Don't you just love how Stampin' Up's products are so coordinated!?!

The layers of textures with the ribbon and embossed cardstock are striking.

The Leaning Eiffel Tower- love it. Your textures are great from the crumb cake through the ribbon. Neat card.
