BasicGrey | Herbs & Honey | Audrey Pettit

 Happy Wednesday, friends! Sharing a card with you today that I made for the BasicGrey CHA booth featuring their adorable new collection called Herbs & Honey. Out of all the new BasicGrey collections, I think this one may be my favorite! Loaded with country charm and all things yummy and sweet, Herbs & Honey is a “Grandma’s Kitchen” kind of collection. And that’s just right up the alley of a vintagey, shabby-chic, funky junk lover like me!

What’s fun about this plant pick is that rather than the frame being clear, it is frosted. I backed the pick with a floral sticker peeking through the frosted pane. Then I wrapped twine around the card and added a few woodgrain accents to mimic sort of a tabletop. Kinda looks like a stand at the farmer’s market, doesn’t it?

Thanks so much for stopping by! Wishing you all a wonderful day.
