Hello and thanks for visiting!
Today's card features the all new Linen Specialty Paper. I was sad when the Subtle Textured Embossing Folder retired but this paper is a close second. It has an adhesive backing, and I think the best way to describe it, is to say it reminds me of a fabric bandage, like an Elastoplast band aid :) The layout for the card was inspired by Fab Friday. Please click on either my card or the Fab Friday image and go directly to their blog post and enjoy the inspiration from all the creative ideas.
And here's the card details:
4 1/4 x 5 1/2 Gray Granite card base ( 4 1/4 x 11 folded in half landscape orientation)
4 x 5 1/4 Soft Suede Cardstock (CS) layer
2 3/4 x 3 1/4 piece of Linen Specialty Paper ***** Click here Lesley's online store to purchase this paper. If you use the Host Code 7DT6ZCV2 in May, then I can send you a thank you gift with your card in June :)
2 3/4 x 3 1/4 piece of Gray Granite CS
Assembly and Trix:
* Stamp the Soft Suede layer with Queen Anne's Lace stamp set to create a background using Soft Suede ink.
* Emboss Soft Suede layer with the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder.
* Adhere to card base using Multipurpose Liquid glue (glue)
* Adhere the Linen Specialty Paper to the Gray Granite piece. ***Trix, I found it easier to use a slightly larger piece of both the Linen and Gray Granite paper and then trim to the desired size. The leftover piece can be used for the sentiment. The Linen paper has an adhesive back that is very forgiving if you place it crooked onto the Gray Granite, however it is fabric so it stretches slightly.
* Stamp the Wren from the Etched in Nature stamp set using Memento Black ink onto the Linen Specialty Paper. ***Trix, I used the Stamparatus® to stamp the outline of the Wren, the Stamparatus® is fabulous because you can re-ink the stamp and stamp again to get even coverage.
* Adhere the Linen layer using Stampin' Dimensionals.
* Stamp the sentiment using Memento Black ink onto a scrap piece of Linen paper and adhere to the Gray Granite Shimmer Ribbon with glue.
* Adhere the Gray Granite Shimmer Ribbon to the card with glue and embellish with Metallic Pearls.
Enjoy and have a super day!
