Easy does it...

For this card I wanted to replicate a style I see a lot with "trendy" mass-produced cards. You know, the ones that cost at least 5 dollars.

I wanted this card to be all about different textures. There's the smoothness of the paper, the glossy shine of the button, the fabric of the ribbon, and lastly the dry embossing. The striped designer paper is covering a slide mount-shaped piece of chipboard. There's a clear button on top of the flower. I did the dry embossing to give the slightest illusion of designer paper. I had it plain, but decided to dab on some of the coordinating chalk colours from the designer paper. And to "round" it all off, sorry about the pun, I used the corner rounder to finish it nicely for the bottom corners.


  1. This card is gorgeous!With all of the different things you did to this card It must have taken you quite some time to make it.
