I'm late to the party--I JUST got my free Country Floral embossing folder with just one week left in Sale-A-Bration 2019. But I managed to inventory my cardstock and put together another qualifying order, and I'm glad I did because that folder is gorgeous! Can't wait to play some more.
If you're reading this too late to get your folder for free, it's going to carry over into the next main catalog, so that's great news!
I made these single-color cards with Whisper White and Gray Granite, a light grayish khaki color. Monochromatic neutrals give you a very elegant, harmonious look. The focus was on the texture, so in addition to the embossing, I added frames made with the Rectangle Stitched Framelits, sponging, twine, buttons and my favorite awesome die-cut sprig from the Frosted Bouquet set.
Here's a simpler version that still has lots of texture. I want to try this layout in some different color combos next! The floral stamp is from Touches of Texture and the tiny "hello" is from Beauty Abounds. I colored in just the flowers with my Aqua Painter brush and the Gray Granite ink pad.
TOP TIP: my favorite adhesive for attaching little things like mini buttons, twine bows and delicate die-cuts is our Glue Dots. They are very small and clear, and if you need them even smaller, you can roll them or fold them in half. I go through about a box a month, seriously. One in each corner also holds and entire cardfront on, they are that strong. Plus, since they're not a liquid or a sticky-style adhesive, there is zero residue on your fingers afterwards. WIN!
