SSNOTIME131***CAS WITH TEXTURE***



Adding texture to cards is fun. Today lets try to add texture, but still keep it clean and simple. Those 2 challenges may seem to be incongruous, but let's try! I think we'll get some pretty results!!! Your texture can come in any form -- embossing, distressing, adding embellishments for dimension -- whatever you like -- just add some fun texture to a CAS creation!!!

I don't use my Cuttlebug folders as often as I should and thought that this would be a great way to add some texture and still keep it CAS.

I used my distress inks and water first to color a piece of white cardstock. I used Peeled Paint and Antique Linen. Dry it thoroughly and iron to flatten.
Run it through your Cuttlebug or Big shot with a folder. I used the leaf one.

I added a piece of ribbon turned back on itself with a detail rhinestone. I also put the corners through my corner rounder for a little more detail. No sentiment this time. I hadn't decided what to use but will probably do a birthday sentiment on the inside.

Okay, you've inspired me (so what else is new?!). It's time to get my Cuttlebug out again!

Great background paper you created, really pretty. The other thing about this card that inspired me was that I never use this folder sideways. I always use it up and down. I love it sideways! Thanks for the idea. Best, Curt
