Shopping Our Stash #260 - Get Inspired By Your Bedding!

Hey, Crafty Peeps!
We are back with another one of our off the wall Shopping Our Stash challenges!  The last time we wandered this far into the land of unique inspiration we asked you to get inspired by your shower curtain! I drew my inspiration from the bedding in one of our guest rooms. 
The primary focal is the geometric pattern in the comforter.   The comforter is reversible, so I was inspired by the greyish brown color and tried to match that in the cardstock used for my base.  My paper is much darker but the true color is more correctly reflected in the banner and the designer paper used on the inside. 

 I wanted to play around with double-embossing the front of my card.  For this creation, I used ColorBox® Silver Embossing Powder in combination with the WRMK® Next Level "Quilted" Embossing Folder
A tutorial for double-embossing can be found HERE on the ClearSnap® Blog
I finished off the design with the Heidi Swapp® Love, Love, Love Banner.  I die cut a heart using my Sizzix® Hearts. Both the sentiment and the heart are secured with double-sided foam tape.  This created a cool 3D look IRL.  

The interior was finished off with a designer sheet from Teresa Collins'™ "Far Away" collection.   Finally, I added a Petaloo Glass Flower. 

Thanks for stopping by!   Try this double-embossing.  You can create fun, elegant faux metal designs and save money!  
Hugz,
Chana

  6. Hello Chana: Your card is gorgeous, the quilted look you got with the embossing folder is awesome but you hit it out of the park with the beautiful silver embossing.
    Love all the details and how this card looks so similar to your quilt.
    Just beautiful.
