Hey Girl by Sandy

Good design is always a source of inspiration. This month that inspiration came for me from Heidi Swapp's Destination Trimmings which is the first thing I completely used up. After the two ruffled and fringed borders made it onto my layouts, it is the turn of the packaging to spark creative ideas.

White woodgrain cardstock is used to recreate the shape of the packaging while the zebra stripes led to the idea of wrapping baker's twine in a radiating pattern. The twine supports a scattering of tiny alphas spelling out the card's sentiment.

For cardmakers feeling hesitant about using textured cardstock, here's a closeup of my stamped title. The little imperfections were covered up with my Marvy LePen which has a nice microfine nib for precision corrections.
