Hi guys! I just love working with Kraft card and out it came again for this card. I like mixing different textures and putting things together that don't always look like they should go together. The most fun about cardmaking for me is there really aren't any rules. If you like it, if it works for you, if it makes you do the happy dance, then go for it! Here I have mixed felt flowers with ribbon flowers and paper flowers. I mixed different patterns in cardstock and used both ribbon and jute twine. All the things I love to play with in fact. I liked the result (I even did the happy dance) and didn't break any rules either (cuz there aren't any to break, remember!) For the focal element, I used the Picot edge circles, labels fourteen and the beaded oval die templates. I inked the top two dies using tea dye distress ink while still in the die. The paper and the felt flowers were created using the Spiral flower die template, while the ribbon flower was rolled using the cotton hemp ribbon. I used a small border that was cut with an edgeability insert. The entire piece was framed with black Pva glue dots. I was really happy with it when I finished it and I hope you'll like it too. You will have to let me know!
