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.

June BWT (1)


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!!

    This is beautiful! I love that rustic cream with the inked edges. The embossing – awesome. (I am partial to wood grain embossing.) This card has such a soft and gentle feel to it. Just like the sweet whispers we make to newborn babies. Unique and lovely.
