Happy Thanksgiving

Sometimes the coolest things happen when you experiment. That's what happened on this card. Here's the story . .

I participated in a swap with other Stampin' Up! demonstrators and was the recipient of some gorgeous cards! I decided to use one of the swap cards for my Rich Regals and Bold Brights stamp club projects this month. I was wondering if the person who created the card ran the Peach Parfait cardstock through the Big Shot with the Concord Crush and Pear Pizzazz cardstock attached, or attached the Concord Crush and Pear Pizzazz cardstock after it was run through the Big Shot. So, I attached the Concord Crush and Pear Pizzazz strips and ran it through the Big Shot using the Square Lattice Embossing Folder and was amazed at how it came out! It looks like the cardstock strips were weaved into the Peach Parfait cardstock! Click on the picture of the card for a closer look -- you'll be as surprised as I was. Now, I believe this look is due to the detailed embossing folder that I used with all the "nooks and grannies." You just have to try this!! It's soooo awesome!! (And no, the person who did the swap card did not do it this way.)

Also, this card uses the French Foliage stamp set in the Holiday Mini Catalog. I'm a sucker for any stamp set that has a realistic leave image(s) in the set. Stampin' Up! should just go ahead and send the set(s) to me because you know I'll buy them! The other thing I love about this card is the color combination - Pear Pizzazz, Peach Parfait and Concord Crush - all new In Colors. Don't they look lovely together?
