Grandma's Flower ...

I've mentioned before my love of crafting with textiles as well as papercrafts, today's card is another reflection of where the two crafts meet.  I've used hexagon stamps to create the same effect as when creating a 'Grandma's Garden Flower Quilt'.  Having created the panel I then embossed it to add depth and texture - this is the same as stitching a quilt.

The embossing is difficult to see in the photographs but it does add a lot of texture.  I used the following:

Stampin Up Inks - Bermuda Bay, Regal Rose, Baja Breeze, Coastal Cabana and Crisp Cantaloupe
Stampin Up Bermuda Bay card and ribbon
Clearly Besotted - Honeycomb Stamp Set
Die'Sire Embossalicious Knit One, Purl One embossing folder.

I'm entering in the following challenges:
