Welcome to my blog!  Today’s card is made using products from the In Good Taste Suite by Stampin Up!®.  The nice thing about these suites is that you can buy it all at once or just the bits and pieces that you like from each suite.  I find that I do combine elements from other suites at times.  Like this card I brought in the ribbon pack from the Flowers for Every Season suite.  Some elements help to add texture to cards like the In Good Taste wooden elements from this suite.  You can also add texture by using Stampin Dimensionals.  Have fun and experiment with textures when your creating your cards.  You’ll surprise yourself when you see your end project!  Hope you enjoy this card.

Here’s a video link with this card and 2 others using this suite!


I’m also including written instructions.
