Simple Lay-out with Added Texture

Card made with Stampin'UP!'s Sale-a-bration 2013 set: Patterned OccasionsThis is the final post about my paper scraps. Did you catch the first post?  Weird where our inspiration comes from, in this case it was from my scrap pile.
  • The first post showed 2 simple lay-outs for using the scraps
  • The second post showed how to use markers to vary the color on the stamps
  • This post shows how to jazz it up a little with added texture.
Card made with Stampin'UP!'s Sale-a-bration 2013 set: Patterned OccasionsThe top card has that scrap paper strip.  But for the 2nd card its jazzed up a little with some added texture.  

The strip was wide enough to fit in my Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border punch.  I love the sweet polka-dot effect you get with it and the tiny scallops along each edge.

The extra texture on this card is from the Delicate Designs Embossing Folder.  This product is a set of 2 narrow folders to emboss card edges.  

And they coordinate with the Large Scallop Edgelits Die.

Adding a little texture to a simple lay-out can really add a "wow" factor to a project.

Have you seen the Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border punched used to make Framing Layers?
