Hello Flourishes fans! It’s Meredith with you this month, and I was pretty excited to challenge the girls to one of my favourite kinds of cards: neutral with a lot of texture. I love creating all white cards, and when I do, I always make use of my impression plates, embossing folders and textiles to add lots of interest within the monochromatic scheme.
For this challenge, I decided to switch it up a bit, and instead of white, I chose to use rustic cream. I knew that I wanted to create a lot of interest with textiles, and also used my favourite impression plates to add texture to my paper. I also inked the edges to draw out that texture. I added even more texture by distressing the edges of my sentiment panel, which I stamped in a linen coloured ink, using the Just My Type set.
I created my accent flower by die cutting some wide lace, wool felt, and paper which I embossed and inked. I then layered my pieces, and finished it off with a vintage button, and some jute twine; more texture.
I had a lot of fun figuring out all the different ways I could include lots of texture to add interest to my card – vintage lace is my favourite textile to work with, and impression plates come in very handy!
The next beautiful destination on today’s world tour is…….Bridget in Northern Ireland!!
