Design tips: If you’re looking for ideas for interesting texture in your handmade cards, this card will give you some inspiration! The artwork is strong enough that it holds its own in front of everything else on the card.
- The background layer was stamped tone-on-tone with a stamp from Touches of Texture.
- In front of the background are strips of 5/8″ Burlap Ribbon on a piece of Crushed Curry Cardstock. This “ribbon” is quite stiff, so it doesn’t fold around the edges of cardstock well. Try adhering it flat to your cardstock with some Fast Fuse or Tear & Tape Adhesive. The burlap has a bit of shimmer due to the very fine nylon thread that holds the strands together.
- In front of the burlap is a mess of Gold Baker’s Twine, found in the Holiday Catalog in a Trio Pack with Cherry Cobbler and Garden Green.
