Crocheted Mat

***This is my second post for the day.  For my CAS-ual Fridays/Paper Players post please scroll down or click here!***


Happy 1 year anniversary to Dynamic Duos!  How quickly the time flies - I can't believe it's their 52nd challenge already...  For this week's challenge we get to choose any past colour combo to use.  I went with Week #15 - Certainly Celery and Pretty In Pink (although my colours look quite a bit darker in the photo...)  Anyway I'm excited to show off the crocheted mat I used for this card.  The fabulous Jessi Fogan of onecraftymama makes and sells these fabulous layering mats.  They come in a few different colours and add a gorgeous touch of texture to your card.  Be sure you check out Jessi's blog - even if you're not shopping for crocheted mats reading a few posts will be sure to give you a good giggle!


Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White) Bazzill, (Certainly Celery) Stampin' Up
Stamps:  (Vase & flowers from Gracious Vases, Sentiment from Fillable Frames #4) Papertrey Ink
Ink:  (VersaFine Onyx Black) Tsukineko, (Certainly Celery, Basic Grey)
Die:  (Nestabilities Standard Circles Large) Spellbinders
Gems:  Recollections

Stunning color combo, Jen - and this design is so delicate. Crocheted mat? What next? What a fun idea. Thanks for sharing.

Oh boy, and I fed right into that with my post from today & my Mother's Day flowers ;) Thank you so much for your sweet words, Jen. You are awesome :) I knew you would rock this in your CAS glory!

I love Jessi's mats. I still can't get myself to use them, then they will be gone. I need to make a card for myself so I'll always have one.

this is just stunning. the black mat makes everything pop!

Jenny said...

mmm that pop of black crochet is just the job!!! They're fab aren't they... I used most of mine on last years crimbo cards but of course never had time to take pics :0(
Beautiful card, the orchid is very pretty.
