Cards using Julie Comstock Prints

I was delighted when Julie Comstock reached out to me a couple weeks ago and invited me to use some of her digital products.  Julie was the creative force behind Cosmo Cricket, one of my favorite paper companies.

She's got some beautiful prints and downloads available at I'm sharing a couple cards today using two of her Fall Patterns.  These are such pretty papers that I didn't want to cover them up.  My goal was to enhance them, adding texture and interest.

For this first card, I got out my cutting knife.  It was delicate work, but I cut around the tips of those leaves which adds both dimension and texture.

The sentiment is from my So Many Sentiments set for Neat & Tangled, and I added a bit of thread and a few sequins to finish things off.

For this next card, I added texture through stitching.  The veins of the leaves were quite thin and delicate, so instead of using floss, I used thread that was doubled up.  

I also added some Nuvo drops in Oyster.  I have to admit I am not good at embellishments.  I think I probably added a few too many and it kind of looked like my card had a pox.  To soften those drops and add some additional texture and a little sparkle, I sprinkled some glitter over the still wet drops.

I finished the card off with a sentiment from my Oak Leaf set for Neat & Tangled stamped on one of the banners from the Scalloped die set.

I've got a whole stack of papers and tags from Julie yet to use, so stay tuned for more.  And be sure to head over to Julie's site to take a look at all the things she has available for download.
