Looks Like Leather

Looks Like Leather

“Looks like leather,” is what my husband said when he saw the card I made for the Gina K. January Release color challenge last weekend (Kraft, Chocolate Brown, and Turquoise Sea). For the background, I adhered kraft card stock to a larger piece of brown card stock and ran this through my Big Shot with the Gridlock embossing folder.

The turquoise panels were muted with Old Paper distress ink to make the birthday card suitable for a male recipient. I used the layout from SCS sketch challenge 314.

Thanks for stopping by!
