Have a Wonderful Day!!

Whilst looking through my stamp sets I found a set of Penny Black Hedgehogs that haven't been used for ages, love these cheeky fun images and thought I would use them in conjunction with this fabulous White Linen card from papermill direct. which is from their 'Essentials' range, to create a Design Team project for them.  (materials list, links and challenges entered are at end of post).


For my card I chose the popular White Linen and teamed it with bright Raspberry pink.  I scored and folded the White Linen to create my card blank, and to die-cut with a scalloped circle and a lattice trellis background die.  I love the versatility of the Linen Card, and the texture is subtle but makes a big difference to the overall look of your projects.  
 
I like to stamp and colour onto Linen Card too, and that is what I did with my little Penny Black hedgehog stamp.  I also stamped a greeting of 'Have a Wonderful Day' onto the linen and die-cut it into a little tag.  My image was coloured with pro-markers and some stickles glitter glue was added to the centre of the flowers to give a little sparkle.  4 white card candis and a raspberry ribbon provide the finishing touches. 

I think Linen card really is an 'essential' part of every paper crafters stock.  It can have lots of uses from formal through to fun creations. 

Tomorrow I will show a card that features another of the 'essentials' so I do hope you will pop back.  I would love to hear any comments or feedback and I am always happy to answer any questions. Happy crafting!!
