It's all about inspiration this week on the blog and today is day 3. Today I have a card that was inspired by Maile Belles. I love her simple and clean style, but especially love when she adds french knots as an embellishment to her design. I do not do needlepoint or embroidery, however, that's a craft that both my sister and mom enjoy...so i decided to give the french knots a try and here's what I came up with.
I broke out my anniversary set, Round & Round for this one. I haven't used that sent in a while so it was nice to hang out with an old friend again. I used a sheet of patterned paper from My Mind's Eye that matched perfectly with Papertrey Ink's Pure Poppy and Melon Berry. So I added some Rustic Cream and Kraft for a pretty simple card. Here's a closer look at my french knots (my first one's by the way). Maile's tutorial was fabulous!!
