How to Make A Big Difference With A Little Texture

Hello there everyone! Lydia here. Today, I'm so excited to introduce our newest release!

How to Make A Big Difference With A Little Texture

To start, I created a whole background onto a 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ panel of Classic Crest Solar White Cardstock. I used Stencil Art: Charming Delight – I just adore this gorgeous image.

For the flowers, I used Peachy Keen and Pink Pearl for the first layer, then Coral Bliss and Cotton Candy for the second layer, for the third, I used Lavender Fields and Deep Iris, and for the last layer, I used Desert Night and Dark Night.

For the blossoms, I used Pink Pearl, Coral Bliss, and Deep Iris. The leaves were created using Misty Moor, Marshland, Sea Forest, and Mangrove Root.

Adding Texture

Once I had finished creating the background, I cut the panel in half to create 2 cards.

I added one of the panels as-is directly onto the front of an A2 card base. With the other, I embossed it using Textured Hexagons 3D Embossing Folder – this adds such a fun effect to the panel without much effort.

Once this was embossed, I trimmed this panel down to 4″ x 5 1/4″ . This was then added to another card base using Instant Dimension Foam Tape.
