I’ve been seeing beautiful projects with the In Good Taste Suite all year. And I feel like I’ve had a love/hate relationship with the paper and the fonts in the stamp set, but when I sat down to recreate this pretty card by Artisan Design Team Member, Tammy Wilson, I really enjoyed working with all the elements. The Tasteful Touches embossing folder has quickly become a close competitor for my favorite the Subtle embossing folder and I just love the mixed fonts in this stamp. I hope you enjoy the lovely textures portrayed on this photographic paper. I didn’t quite have all the same supplies Tammy used, but I’m pretty happy with the results.
