OWH Boot Camp: Using texture to add interest

Our instructor, Paula, has posted a new Boot Camp session today at the OWH Stars & Stamps blog, entitled "How does it feel? Using texture to add interest." Our assignment is to make a card that incorporates visual texture, tactile texture, or both. Here's a card I made:

Card ingredients:
Sentiment: Tim Holtz "Visual Artistry" stamp set
DP: Basic Grey's "Oxford" 6x6 pad
Burlap: Really Reasonable Ribbon
Ranger Distress Ink: Old Paper, Vintage Photo
Tim Holtz distress tool
Button, twine

 My card incorporates tactile texture, with the torn, distressed edges, burlap, button & twine. I stamped "Congratulations" on the inside. I hope a hero will want to send it home to their college or high school age son. It looks pretty masculine to me. Paula, thanks for sharing your design expertise with us in another great session!

Beautiful use of texture in this Sherry! That background paper is marvelous and I'd say this is masculine too. Thanks for joining in and linking up this very cool card! :)
