Stampin' Up - Art With Heart Colour Creations Blog Hop Week 22 - Grapefruit Grove

I am having a lot of fun when I get the chance to hop along with the Art With Heart team and challenge myself with the next colour in the list of gorgeous colours that Stampin' Up has to offer. This week it is Grapefruit Grove and it is one of the new In Colours for 2018-2020.
It is a very vibrant and gorgeous colour and I think you are going to like it a lot.
I have done a very simple and quick card for you tonight. I know you had better sit down. It is not a fancy fold card.

For this card I have embossed the Grapefruit Grove card stock twice. The first time through the big shot I embossed with the Subtle Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder ( DTIEF) and then I put it through the big shot a second time using the Tufted DTIEF.

Here is an up close look at the card stock so you can see both impressions.

It really looks gorgeous adding that extra bit of texture to the already beautiful Tufted DTIEF.

For the gorgeous Designer Series Paper I have used Nature's Poem I really love Blackberry bliss and the Petal Pink that is in this particular piece. Grapefruit Grove is one of the colours that is featured in the Nature's Poem DSP.

The Black Glittered Organdy Ribbon is just beautiful and is perfect to be the backdrop for the greeting that I have used from the stamp set Petal Palette and cut out using the Petals and More Thinlits that coordinate with this gorgeous stamp set. I popped it up on a few dimensionals.

To get the design on the front of the card I have simply cut the embossed piece of grapefruit grove card stock on an angle and then the piece I had left I cut the little extra bit to add as well.

Make sure you hop on over to the lovely Cathy Proctor so that you can see more inspiration for the colour Grapefruit grove. 

Don't hesitate to contact me if you need any help in making this card or for any of your craft need.

Thank you for spending some time with me today.
