Happy Sunday Bloggers!
Today is a new challenge over at The Crafty Pad Challenge Blog!
This week the theme is "Lots of Texture"!
We want to see lots of different textures on your card!
Here's the card I made.
I raided my stash to see what I could find!
I think I've managed to use lots of textures!
The base card was made from a sheet of A4 textured brown cardstock.
I added a matt of white linen textured card, then two matts of yellow
corrugated, card, topped with some hand made paper,
which was wrapped with some hessian mesh.
The image I have used is Polly With Flower, from The Crafty Pad Designs.
I've coloured her with promarkers & added a couple of
mullbery paper flowers, which are held together with a brad.
I also doodled a couple of little birds in the sky as I felt I'd left a bit of a space
when I cut her out with a nestie!
(Perhaps I should have moved her over a bit or used a different shape of nestie)
I popped her onto another piece of the corrugated card & cut round by hand,
before securing onto the card base.
The sentiment panels were computer generated & mounted using foam pads for dimension.
To finish off the card, I added some buttons & a couple of flourishes cut with a Marianne Designs die.
Because I love the colour of this brown card & the fact I wanted this card to have a gardeny (is that a word?) feel I didn't want to add an insert.
Instead, I adhered a panel of white card to write on, then added some hand made paper corners.
Thanks for stopping by to see my card!
I hope you like it & that you can join in with us at
