Happy Monday!

Yesterday, I decided to play with the new Tasteful Textures Stamp Set and Tasteful Background Dies that I got this past week.  I used one of the dies to create a focal point on this card.  The die fit perfectly across the 3 3/4″ x 5″ blushing bride layer.  I really like the way it looks and in the picture, it actually looks like the white cardstock is puffed up and popping through the die cut design.   I love it, and the die makes a very pretty design on the card.  Don’t you agree?  There are 3 pretty dies in this set that will make any crd look beautiful. 

The inside is a little different from what I normally do, and I think it looks pretty neat.  I chose to stamp one of the images from the stamp set in Blushing Bride ink, but before I stamped it on the whisper white layer, I stamped off first and then stamped it on the layer.  I did it this way because my ink pad was a little too juicy, and it was going to stamp a little too dark.  By stamping off some of the ink, it lightened up the image a little bit which is what I wanted and then I stamped the sentiment in tuxedo black ink.   By having the background image lighter, the sentiment shows up really well.   


  • Basic Black Card Base – 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ scored at 4 1/4″
  • Whisper White Layer – 4″ x 5 1/4″
  • Blushing Bride Layer – 3 3/4″ x 5″ 
  • Whisper White for the Sentiment –  1 7/8″ x 3 3/4″
  • Basic Black to outline the sentiment – 1 11/16″ x 3 3/4″

With the Tasteful Textures stamps and Textured Background dies, you can whip up a pretty card in no time at all.   What do you think?  Do you like it?  I sure do and I’m so glad I got this bundle.  Speaking of bundles, the Tasteful Textures stamp set and Textured Background Dies can be purchased separately, but if purchased as a bundle, you will save 10% which is what I recommend you doing if you like this bundle as much as I do,.
