For my project I was inspired by a card that My Design Team sister Jenny made Here

Jenny's Project- My design Inspiration

Orginally I wanted to try to make the twine diecuts, but after several failed attempts I decided to just copy her simple layout. I wanted to try to the clean and simple approach to cardmaking as my cards can be very involved with many layers.

Jenny used two pattern papers, one as a base and the other as a strip across and here is my attempt to replicate that simple clean style.

My project using Jenny's layout as inspiration. As you can see, I made it my own!

I went through my scraps and found some cardstock that would make a really nice card. I actually made some videos of my design process here, as well as a very detailed video of my coloring incase you were curious how I created such detailed shading on my project

My videos are divided in two parts because believe it or not this card was super time consuming

All stamps from Peachy Keen Stamps
All papers are from Recollections- available at Michael's
Pattern paper is from the Recollections Autumn Splendor

Hope you like it have a great day
