“I am really enjoying making these tall cards lately, they add a special touch. For this card I used the pretty Dream Text and Flourish (from Jumbo Dahlia) to make a background. Then I embossed different foliage patterns (from the Foliate Quad Cube) on varying shades of green cardstock, I love this gradient look. I embellished the card simply with some twine and little felt hearts. As a bonus for this card, I also created a sketch which you are more than welcome to use and enter your creation to win Stampendous goodies for yourself!” _Geny
