And next up we have Vivian Keh with some more cards…loving the Vintage Cardstock on this first one. Everyone LOVES a gray color palette and the Be(you)tiful is perfect for it!   I know gray has become my “go to” neutral.


And a gorgeous close up:


Hemp for cards is a favorite of mine because you can add a soft touch and it’s not too bulky:


See how Core and Authentique match PERFECTLY???



Get out those diec cuts and pop up dots!  Just some simple shapes cut out of cardstock, and of course sanded, not only add visual interest but it makes cardmaking easy!
