I scrolled through Kathy's blog and found a number of cards that I wanted to CASE, but finally decided on this card. If I'd read Kathy's 'recipe' before starting, I would've realised that her card base is Crumb Cake .... but, I thought it looked like Soft Suede, so that's what I started with! After consulting my handy Color Coach from Stampin' Up!, I decided on the colour combo of Soft Suede, So Saffron and Riding Hood Red. I thought Very Vanilla would be a little less stark than Whisper White with these colours.
Like Kathy, I used the Just Believe stamp set, but as a slight variation, after stamping the main image on Very Vanilla card using Versamark ink, I embossed it with Iridescent Ice embossing powder. I then sponged So Saffron ink over the top. Here's a close-up of the embossed image, so you can (hopefully) see the subtle sparkle:
