Hello! The rustic look is so trendy right now, I love how you can easily achieve a rustic look on your hand made cards by using the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper Stack. Neutral colors are a great way to make cards with an elegant touch – but I'm a little worried that after yesterday's acorn card in neutrals you will think that I only use neutrals! So I added a colorful card that I made with this same bundle near the bottom of this post!
I adhered Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets on the back of the Wood Textures paper before I cut out the "Happy Birthday" words with the Happy Birthday Thinlits Die. Then I peeled off the backing and adhered it to my project. For a vintage touch I added a bow using the Very Vanilla 1/2" Lace Trim.
For the inside of the card I used some of the images from the Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp set which coordinates with the Happy Birthday Thinlits. They are stamped in Early Espresso ink and I punched out the frame with the Classic Label Punch and popped it up on some Mini Dimensionals.
When you purchase the two items together as a bundle you get 10% off.
I do love using neutrals when I'm creating…
…perhaps it is because I stare at these neutral patterns on my fawn brindle dogs all day long – lol!
Just to prove that I can stamp in colors – I'm adding this card in too. I love this color combination of Bermuda Bay and Lemon Lime Twist. I used the same Happy Birthday Gorgeous bundle to create this card – the polka dots on the "Happy Birthday" words are from the polka dot balloon that comes in the Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp set. The images in this stamp set also coordinate with the Balloon Bouquet punch. Thank you so much for stopping by today! Oh – I have a winner to announce…
