TE March Key Ingredients

This month, Taylor challenged the Baker's Dozen to create a card or project that includes texture inspired by the outdoors using this month's Key Ingredients. First of all, let me say that I LOVE this month's Key Ingredients. The patterns and colors of the papers are wonderful and made the "outdoors" theme easy!

I created one of Jodi's AWESOME card purses along with three cards to go in it. I created texture through embossing folders, templates, chipboard and jute. I continued the nature theme with the sentiments.

For my first card, I used a chipboard flower that I colored using acrylic paint daubers. I added a couple of pearls in the center of the flower. For the patterned paper, I added extra texture by using the Daisy Cluster Template and Lettuce acrylic paint dauber to create a flower theme. You can see the comparison between the original patterned paper and the patterned paper after the template and paint dauber. The sentiment is from the Favorite Peeps set.

For my second card, I thought the patterned paper looked like water. I used the Cosmic Swirl Template to add "wind" to the top portion of the card. I used a sentiment from the Faith & Hope stamp set.

My third card uses the butterflies that come in the Key Ingredients kit for texture as well as the Frills Cuttlebug folder. The sentiment is from the Discover Your Wings set.

The card purse uses a butterfly as well, along with another sentiment from the Faith & Hope set.
