Today’s card is an All Abut You card.  This one is made with distressed products which are not my normal card making.  I love a challenge.


Stampin' Up!, Distressed Tiles, Notes of Nature, Linen Thread, Jackie Beers


The Distressed Tile Embossing Folder is one of my favorites.  I love the design and the “worn” spots in the design.  And it seemed a perfect choice for this pairing.  With the card base of Crumb Cake, the Misty Moonlight is a great match in my book.  I am partial to blues and this is the one I tend to lean towards.  Plus it really shows the detail of the embossing clearly.


The Notes of Nature Bundle is a wonderful set for several reasons.  It pairs perfectly with the distressed look of my embossed layer.  But it could create a multitude of backgrounds.  I have trouble with the large background stamps.  But these small ones included here are perfect to create your own backgrounds.  I used the grid one all over the layer.  Then I had to add some of the splatter here and there.  And I even through in the tiny flower for a softer look.

The sentiment is from the stamp set and states the way a Birthday should be.  It is all about you!  I love the three different sentiments included with this set.  They are so different.  And then to the Dies in the bundle.  The fun notebook die created the holes down the left side.  Stampin’ Up! has had similar ones but this one is long and only adds the holes.  I think there is a lot that can be done with this one.  And those gorgeous twigs of greenery, except in blue, are a great addition for more texture and interest.


The finishes to this card are small ones.  With the textures and distressed paper, it really did not need very much.  But to add to the textures, I gave the card two more of different types.  First is the Linen Thread.  It is wrapped around the end of the sentiment with a double bow added.  I love Linen Thread and how easy it ties.  And the second and final touch is  a new embellishment.  The Adhesive Backed Cork Rounds are a fun addition included in the Nature’s Sweetness Suite of products.  One is all I felt it needed and that is showing restraint on my part. LOL!!!  The Stamp Bundle is part of that suite also.  This is all on page 41 of the Mini Catalog.
