I like to use unusual elements on my cards sometimes. Besides being very economical, using unique finds from thrift shops and yard sales can sometimes give you a look you won’t find at any regular craft stores - so your card will be ‘something different’.
I made this card for a relative -
I chose this GI Free Form (Citrus Stripe) Designer Paper from the GWEN collection by Kim Crothers. I simply layered a narrower strip with black, elevated it above the card base using foam tape and added my own “twine” which I created by twisting tri colors of crochet thread together. The sentiment is a Studio G, stamped using Versafine Black.
I find THESE - I call them ‘snaps’? These are a dime a dozen, literally, at thrifts and they are absolutely wonderful for masculine cards.
