The Stampin’ Schach Design Tips

For my three elements, I went down a diagonal:  patterned paper, embossing, die cut. The paper, from the Artistry Blooms collections, certainly saves a lot of work.  It gives the impression of a water color wash with spatters, without any of the time and work involved.

For the embossing, I used one of my new favorite 3D embossing folders, Tasteful Textile. I can’t say enough about this folder.  It definitely imparts texture while staying subtle.  Of course, the focal point of the card has to be the dove die cut.  And to think I almost did not buy the Dove of Hope bundle, which includes the Detailed Dove dies. What was I thinking? These dies are gorgeous!
