neutrals with texture…

Hello Dear Friends,

The newest challenge at Double “D” Challenges is a departure that called for some creative muscle! The theme is neutral + texture. I love the look of burlap and white together and I’m especially fond of the contrast of texture in the burlap against lacy die cut edges and flourishing stamping details…

Using a gatefold as my card base, I layered the front panels with paper backed burlap. Two die cut circles were layered and then stamped with three different, lacy, circular designs in two neutral shades. I cut the layered circles down the center and then lined the cut edges with the outside folds. A length of hand dyed seam binding was adhered to the back panel of the card and used to keep the front panels closed…

What I like about this card is that it’s a great base for a birthday, anniversary, thank you, friendship, wedding or love card! It’s also convenient because it can be sent in a flat envelope.

I hope you will join us for this challenge. Here’s a great source of inspiration…
