PTI Blog Hop 2

A card dedicated to pattern and texture for Papertrey Ink's blog hop.


My color's were inspired by the strip of Studio Calico fabric: gray, cream and brown. I normally wouldn't pair brown and gray. I impressed some Rustic Cream cardstock with Woodgrain and then inked the edges with Frayed Burlap (love this color!) and Vintage Photo. I adhered the fabric after die-cutting it with the Simple Circles border.

Using the Tree Tops die, I cut 3 trees out of burlap, canvas and some fabric scraps from my curtains. I stamped the little bird from Through the Trees onto the canvas using Classic Kraft ink. The sentiment, from Falling Leaves, is stamped in Vintage Cream ink.

I'm also entering this into this week's Make It Monday: fabric die cuts.

I love my TH inks but I'm not really "up" on all the colors offered since no one carries them locally. I LOVE the one you've used here! It warms up your card so nicely...especially on that woodgrain. GREAT card!!
