Hi! Welcome to my blog. I’m Sara Levin theartfulinker. Today is the monthly Creating Kindness blog hop. And the challenge or theme the design team is working with this month is “texture”. I’ve created a Tasteful Touches Forever Fern card to go with the theme.
Tasteful Touches Forever Fern Card
For cardmaking, I generally think in two kinds of texture:
the kind you can feel;
and, the kind you can see.
On this card, I’ve combined both.
To create tactile texture, I used layers, embellishments and trim.
And to create visual texture, I’ve combined shapes, colors and die cut vellum.
You’ll stamp the images from Tasteful Touches, Forever Fern and To a Wild Rose in
Calypso Coral, Mango Melody, Pool Party, Poppy Parade, Granny Apple Green and Old Olive.
Then, use your Stampin’ Blends to color in the flowers.
(Find the list of Stampin’ Blends used below)
Add a strip of Vellum cut with the Many Medallions Dies.
Then accent with tufts of Braided Linen Trim and Woven Threads Sequins.
