Paper Maniac Thursday - Texture, Buttons and Faux Stitching

Thursday, January 21, 2010

Hello! It's Paper Maniac Thursday! We've been focusing on texture, buttons, and faux stitching this week on the Paper Maniac Blog. My card uses all three elements. For texture, I used an embossing folder to give the dark brown cardstock the texture of tree bark. The rectangle of cork adds a bit of texture as well. The owl image is from Hero Arts and I hand drew the branch with a brown marker. It's hard to tell in this picture, but the owl's eyes are orange rhinestones. The sentiment is from Imaginisce. I added a button accent in the corner and finished the card off with some faux stitching around the perimeter.
I used two kinds of Spellbinders dies on my card- oval and scalloped rectangle. Thanks for stopping by today!

Hello Dana! I think this is one of my most favourite cards I've seen - EVER! (And I've seen a lot of cards!) I love How you've used the textures and kept it simple - it really showcases on that beautiful owl - think I might need to case this.... ;)
