Farm Fresh – by Holly McMillen

Today Holly used the little chicken dies included in our Farmhouse Signage Series to create her card. She took both a mesh type ribbon and a mesh type embossing folder to represent chicken wire using black and copper as her color scheme. Take a look:

I love the background Holly created with the use of DecoArt Metallic Lustre.

I can see this use of the Metallic Lustre with embossing folders being a wonderful application for so many masculine themed cards, too!
