Combining Texture for Make It Monday

Tuesday is my day to highlight products from Papertrey Ink, so I'm here to share my card for Make It Monday #331. Stephanie Gold provided a fabulous sample and video showing how to create mixed texture in the background. (see it HERE). 

I loved the way she stamped leaves in gray and wanted to give that a try, since gray is not a color I use often. The leaves in curved patterns, almost like a flourish, from the Corner Adorner: June Mini Set made this easy to stamp along the left edge of the card, and carries over in the form of the berries and flowers on the main panel. Other PTI products include: Vintage Linens stamp set, and Soft Stone Ink. 

More texture comes from the Stampin' Up! Hexagon Die that covers the whole card front to add tone on tone dimension.

I loved making this card, and I thank you for coming by my blog today. Sending happy hugs your way. 

Be yourself
     Delight in your craft 
        Make something beautiful!

Cindy, this is wonderful! I love all your texture and the flowers are one of my favorites! (I think I say that about every flower set!!) And thank you for letting me know I was a winner last week...Nancy just ahead of you told me too, I wouldn't have realized it without my crafty friends keeping me posted! I just assume I wont win anything and I forget to go have a look! Hope you are having a great week! Heart Hugs, colleen

Love how you’ve combined two floral sets...the berries fit right in with your flowers! And you’ve mastered Stephanie’s challenge with perfection. :)

You've done this beautifully, Cindy! I like the leaves in soft gray as a background combined with the hexagon corner. The smaller flowers and berries are just enough accent for the pretty larger flowers up front. Finally starting to feel more caught up with my blog friends since vacation. I'm going to have fun visiting here today!

Cindy, this card is one of my favorites, and it’s very striking. The more I see Vintage Linens used the more I feel the need to own it. Love the gray leaves and colorful berries with your white on white background.
