My card for this week is inspired by this week's Make It Monday challenge at Papertrey Ink. You can find more information HERE.
I pulled out some cardstock that I felt matched the color combination this week. Then I saw the pad of Tim Holtz kraft glassine that I had sitting on my desk. I've been wanting to find a way to use it on a project but hadn't taken the leap yet, so I got out one of my bloom builder sets and die cut the small and medium sizes. After assembling the flowers I nested them together and added the Pure Poppy button to the center. I wanted the flower to take center stage on the card, so I kept the rest of the design very simple. I created my pocket using Pure Poppy cardstock and Edgers #1 die set. I then took a scrap of kraft cardstock and cut the accent piece to add to the pocket. I used Scor-Tape to close the sides and die cut a piece of Rustic Cream cardstock for the tag in the pocket. I added some twine, a couple tiny buttons on the tag tie, a sentiment from the Wildflower Garden stamp set, and some Kaisercraft pearls. The card base is Dark Chocolate cardstock, cut to 5 x 5.
I really like how the kraft glassine worked for the flower. It's got a dull sheen to it and adds just enough texture to the card to make it interesting.
