Today, I wanted to try my hand at another slimline card, and I really wanted to use the Tasteful Touches stamps again.
For this card, I started with a Rococo Rose base and added a layer of Gray Granite. I decided to make my own background paper, so I stamped the flower image randomly in Rococo Rose, and used a mask before stamping the foliage in Mint Macaron and then the pretty background stamp in Gray Granite,
I stamped four of the flower image in Rococo Rose and fussy cut them. I then glued two together to give it more dimension. I cut two labels from the Stitched So Sweetly Dies, one in Gray Granite and one in Very Vanilla. I stamped the birthday sentiment from the Best Year stamp set.
I wrapped some pink twine (I think this is retired SU, but not positive) around the layers three times and added a bow. I adhered one of my flower images flush with the card and then used Stampin’ Dimensionals for the second.
For the inside panel, I stamped the sentiment and the flower image along with some foliage. I also stamped the flower image and foliage on the envelope.

Today, I saw a card made by Dorothee Coudroy and I HAD to attempt it. I just couldn’t believe that there was actually water in the card. She has a tutorial on her YouTube channel, so I decided to check it out. Unfortunately for me, the tutorial was 100% in French, and while I could understand about 1 in 10 words (my French is BEYOND rusty}, the tutorial was so well done that I was able to grasp the basic construction concept. I am so thrilled with the results!
I changed a few things from Dorothee’s card, but kept it pretty close to see if I could make it work. I honestly didn’t expect to have such great success right out of the gate!

Here is another card I created using the Tasteful Touches Bundle. This time, I changed the color palette just slightly, and used a different combination of stamps. I fussy cut the flower, and layered it over the stamps in the background. I have to admit that I despise fussy cutting, but this set is really easy to cut.
