Great sketch at Freshly Made Sketches #246, Capture d’écran 2016-07-23 à 16.17.51so as suggested by the Less is More Recipe: Use something Tactile (two week recipe challenge #286 & 287) I combined the two to create my handmade card 🙂

First, I passed the interior rectangle of white card stock in the We R Memory Keepers WOVEN Embossing Folder.  I cut a leaf die in three different materials, white card stock, white felt and white vellum (Tactile). Then I die cut a SSS whimsical flower die in silver-ish card stock along with a tiny butterfly.  With an eyelet, I attached all together, the leaves and card stock, along with a strip of silver wire (passed through my paper crimpler).  I adhered the flower and the butterfly, pasting this whole piece onto my card.  Hope you enjoy.

Thanks for stopping by, Happy Cardmaking 😀

  1. Oh MY Goodness this is awesome! I can’t believe how neatly you’ve scalloped the wire but I’m guessing that’s the beauty of the crimper! FANTASTIC look and design and each tactile element works so perfectly together. A fabulous CAS card and thanks for playing along with us at Less is More this week. Sarah x


  2. I couldn’t imagine what kind of embellishment that wire was. That’s brilliant that you made it yourself with a crimper. I was just saying to myself the other day that I ought to use my crimper more and so this must be a sign! Your card is amazing with it’s white on white layers and texture. The silver only adds to the beauty of this! Thanks so much for joining us at Freshly Made Sketches!
