Gorgeously Made Textured Thank You Card FF0138

by Joanne James7. July 2023 09:00

Today I have my card for the new challenge over at Festive Friday Card Making and Paper Crafting Challenge


The challenge that we are celebrating this week is 'World Conservation Day' which is on July 28th. Remember the fun thing is that at Festive Friday you do not need to actually celebrate the occasion; your goal is to simply use three or more items from the inspiration list on your project. This week I used kraft card, copper, a wooden embellishment, foliage and a thank you sentiment and this is what I came up with:


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

The starting point for today's card was actually the wooden embellishment that I found in my stash; I thought it had a similar shape to the large foliage die in the Gorgeously Made Dies set so I grabbed that stamp set and dies and set to work! I heat-embossed one of the grassy stamps in white onto my kraft mat layer, and did some tone-on-tone stamping with the script stamp on this layer too, along with some added ink blended around the edge of my panel. I then added two pieces of diecut foliage, one cut from the Copper Clay washed pattern in the Fresh As A Daisy DSP pack and one from copper foil, then added my wooden embellishment and some Copper Clay enamel dots and ribbon behind my sentiment, that I cut out with one of the labels in the Gorgeously Made die set:

In addition to my layered foliage, I added in a shape cut from corrugated kraft card that I found in my stash and some distressed Copper Clay cardstock. This card is so chock-full of texture and the warm, copper tones give it a warm, naturalistic feel - I like it!

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