Subtle Texture

A friend of mine is having a baby... she wants a girl... she has a boy, so she wants a girl.. I told her girls are trouble...LOL. She doesn't know what the sex is but I made her this card anyway... I used a dot stencil to add modeling paste that I tinted with distress ink (spun sugar) and layered it on... I had so much fun.. but I had paste everywhere.

I then inked the sides of the card after the texture paste dried using my blending tool with the same color ink. 

I inked some card stock layering it twice to make it a little darker so I could make a frame. I  used  circle dies of sizes very close together. I then cut a circle where I wanted the little hand to show through

The hand is a stamp from stamping up (kid prints) in the definitely decorative section. I used a stamp from stampabilites called "Palm of His Hand. The verse is Isaiah 49:16

So just in case she has a boy... I made her this one.

I want to link this card up to Texture challenge at simon says stamp, because I added a little texture

I also want to link up to Monochrome at CASology, because I like the tone on tone feel of this card

I also want to link up to Make your MARK at Addicted to Stamps, because I made a mark

I also want to link up to, because what better birthday than the first one.

Hope you enJOY


  1. Cool card - love that hand print - you definitely made your mark here! Thanks so much for playing along with ATSM this week!

  2. Beautiful and clever cards here and love your funny post about your friend wanting a girl. My sister had a baby before Christmas and her older daughter (3) insisted she wanted a 'boy - sister'! She got a baby brother which is I think what she meant!
    Thanks for playing along at ATSM
