CCT: touchy feely with Eric

CCT this week wants you to get touchy feely . . with your card that is!  For mine I've used lots of embossing, tearing & distressing to create lots of texture in the cardstock and then I've added some velvet covered brads which are nice and fuzzy to the touch!  I'll be needing a birthday card for my nephew soon so thought I'd use this cool Eric stamp from the Greeting Farm and I wanted to use some of my fab new EK success border punches - how cool is that chain punch and also that zipper one (which has been punched twice & staggered against each other)?!

  • Stamps: 'Eric' wild sprouts ~The Greeting Farm (from here), 'happy birthday' ~Basic Grey mini stamp

  • Colouring: Copics

  • Paper: just black Coredinations cardstock, silver & tan cardstock

  • Tools: embossing folders ~ houndstooth, stars, distresser tool, EK border punches~ chain & zipper. ATB tape writer for the 'cool dude'.  Just sanded it after typing it out

  • Others: doodlebug velvet brads

    Sorry for the rather simple card but that's about all I can come up with at the moment.  Off to do see which ones of the new Magnolia stamps to get . . kicking myself for not getting the kit this time as I'm loving the fairytale/princess theme - oh well, will just have to get them seperately.

    Thanks for stopping by. Until next time,
