I used the retrosketch #70 for the card design and the Tuesday Trigger: Scene in Tangerine for my color palette and idea to use fabric on the card.
I originally cut natural burlap, but thought the colors were a bit muddy when painted on, so dug through my fabric to find a white burlap. The same Happiness in Bloom stamp & die sets were used to cut a couple of cardstock flowers and leaves. The sentiment is from Bountiful Banners.
A Lifestyle Crafts embossing folder mimics the weave of the burlap and adds more texture to the card. My 14 year old son came in when I had everything done except the sentiment - he thought there was too much white space and it should go on the embossed panel, but I really wanted to tuck the sentiment tag in the flowers. Was he right?
