Nice and Neutral Tasteful Touches card

Hello everyone.

If you’ve read my blog recently you’ll already know how much I love the In Good Taste designer series paper pack. I didn’t initially buy the stamps and dies from the same suite but after seeing lots of lovely projects made with them I could no longer resist the temptation!

Here’s my first card using the Tasteful Touches stamp set and the Tasteful Labels Dies…

I made a card base from Crumb Cake card measuring 29 x 10.5 cm, scored and folded at 14.5 cm. I then added a layer of the In Good Taste designer series paper measuring 10 x 14cm.

I stamped the feather from the Tasteful Touches stamp set 3 times Crumb Cake ink onto Whisper White card and then cut them out. There are no coordinating dies so I used my Scan N Cut but you could simply fussy cut them with snips.

I stamped the sentiment from the same set with Crumb Cake ink onto a different design from the In Good Taste DSP pack and then cut it with this lovely die from Tasteful Labels. It’s a beautiful shape and also has gorgeous stitching detail around the edges.

I cut a piece of Crumb Cake card to measure 4.5 x 9 cm and embossed it with the Tasteful Textile 3D embossing folder before adding it to my card base.

I glued one feather to the embossed section and then added the other 2 with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I used dimensionals for the sentiment label too.

I decided the feathers needed a little bit of bling so went over the stamped images with my Wink Of Stella pen to add some lovely shimmer. Finally I doubled up some Linen Thread, tied it in a bow and added it to the feathers with a mini glue dot.

This is such a simple card but all of the different textures give it lots more interest. I hope you agree.
