PTI August Blog Hop: Herringbone & Lace

Fall. Are you ready? It’s getting cooler here already; I know that in the States many parents send their kids back to school in shorts and t-shirts (and more so now that school often starts in August) but here in northern BC we start carrying jackets and hoodies in mid-August. Mornings and evenings can be pretty chilly, and I’ll be unpacking my sweaters any day now, though we still have a couple of camping trips planned before we bid summer adieu.

Note: To see the sunflower painting that I used as a backdrop for this card, visit this post. I love my yellow ladies!

I’m joining the Papertrey Ink August blog hop today and I’m loving the theme of pattern and texture. Herringbone? Yes, please! Argyle? Sign me up!

Well, I didn’t get to use argyle, but I did have a lot of fun making a vintage style card that isn’t girly at all. Lace Bouquet actually looks right at home stamped in cocoa ink on chocolate card stock.

I die cut a little felt scalloped circle to frame my sentiment frame, stamped using Tag-Its 5 and then just added some pretty (but still masculine embellishments). The corners are Tim Holtz and it was really time to stop hoarding them.
Have a marvelous weekend! I’m hoping for a good morning of house cleaning; after my busy week it’s really quite disgraceful and I have a crafting class on Tuesday so I need to prep for that as well.

    Pretty! I love the lace bouquet paired with the herringbone and those fabulous corner accents!

    Indeed, floral, but not feminine. Great sympathy card!

    Oh, I do love the way Lace Bouquet looks stamped like that on the chocolate. Don’t you just love those TH trinket pins??

    Very pretty card! I love the corners you added to this. Definitely give the card a feel of vintage.
