The Card Concept – Challenge #2

Card-concept-2-kerin-sylves

What an amazing response we had to our very first Card Concept challenge two weeks ago! The entries were outstanding! I'm so glad to see that so many stampers are joining in the fun. 

This week the challenge is to use TEXTURE in your card, and do it in one of the styles explained HERE. As you've probably guessed, my style is Clean & Layered.

I was inspired by the red and white of the house for my card, and chose this stamp because the tree trunk reminded me of the wood texture of the roof. For my texture I embossed two different size dots on my background papers. I also colored & cut out extra hearts and added them to the tree with dimensionals. 

You must check out the other designers' creations, oh my they did not disappoint!!
