Hello, folks! How are you today? My niece and I have been having a great time the last several days dividing our time between seeing the sights and doing cozy stuff at home. Today we are crafting up a storm in the studio. One thread that I’ve noticed throughout her stay is a real tactile interest in everything, whether it’s running her fingers through soil and mud even (lol), running barefoot in the garden, or feeling all the creatures and kelps at the touching pools at the aquarium. In keeping with the tactile theme of her visit, I decided to craft simply for today’s project, monochromatic, with a focus on yes, texture!
This is a die/embossing folder set, “Henna Butterfly,” #658803. I love the small scale of these folders, and especially, the unique shape of the small butterfly in this set.
The plain white piece offers an area of quiet, and an opportunity for the eye to distinguish between the variety of textures I included in this card project. I couldn’t leave it entirely bare though, and so included a pearl accent border.
This lovely pattern was embossed using a Sizzix Vintaj “Moroccan Fresco” #658819 Embossing Folder in that very useful 6×6 in. size.
My niece really wants to make a video together, so hopefully we’ll have something to share with you on youtube shortly! Happy crafting!
