Rustic Share What You Love Card

by Joanne James7. May 2018 20:00

Happy Monday everyone! Today it's a Bank Holiday and therefore a national holiday here in the UK so we have enjoyed a long weekend along with some wonderful sunshine to boot! Today I'm sharing a card using Jen's sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches that also works for the 'O' challenge over at Just Add Ink - I've been so busy out enjoying the sunshine I didn't make time to photograph my card in time to link up at FMS, despite hoping that I was going to manage to play along with these 2 challenges for the second week running as they are a couple of my favourites. You should definitely check them out, their Design Teams are awesome! Here are this week's challenge badges:

       

I was intrigued by Jen's sketch this week as whilst a simple oval it occurred to me that I rarely use ovals in my card making, so I thought I would give it a go. I've included the photo inspiration for last week's challenge over at StampInkPaper because although I'm not linking up there, it was this inspiration photo that led me to create today's style of card that I am ultimately going to link up over at Just Add Ink with my 'o' for 'oval' - take a look:

 

Here's the low-down on today's card:

Sharing What You Love - I have been busy making lots of samples with the fabulous 'Share What You Love' set that is on early release to customers this month using the products and colours in the bundles, so wanted to make something a little different. This card is all about the textures and so I kept my colour palette neutral: wood, white, vanilla, linen and a little Old Olive. Another way to share what I love!

A Rustic Theme - I don't use my Wood Textures papers anywhere near enough and decided to use them both for the background and my heat-embossed flowers. I added a little linen thread and the texture of my oval surround along with a little fussy cutting and a few pearls adds to the rustic feel of my card.

Delightfully Detailed Ovals - I have a new paper love: the Delightfully Detailed Laser-cut Specialty Paper is just beautiful! For my card, I used one of the oval pieces and used it to frame my focal point - it's just so pretty.

Here is the visual summary of the key products used on today's project for you to pin for easy reference:

 

You can see all of my 'How To' summaries on my 'How To - Tips and Techniques' Pinterest board in case you've missed any. 

This card is a little different for me but it's nice to experiment once in a while and step outside of my comfort zone. What do you think - did it work? I'd love to hear your thoughts below.

I hope you've all had wonderful days and that the weather is as glorious where you are! I'll be back tomorrow with another project. Until then, happy stampin'!

This is so pretty Joanne! I love how your wood background allows all your lovely details to pop, The delicate embossed flowers and fussy cut sentiment look so at home inside your fabulous oval frame. Thanks for sharing with us at Just Add Ink this week.
