Card Making Tips Day 5 - Adding Texture, Stampin' Up! Celebrate Sunflowers Bundle

Hi There!  Today's card is all about adding some texture to your card.  One way you can add texture is to use an embossing folder on one of your layers.  In today's card, not only did I emboss the back layer, but I added some ink to the embossing folder to give it a little more depth! It really made a big difference in the look of the embossed panel.  

I used two of the new In Colors in this card.  My card base was a 11" x 4 1/4" piece of Bumblebee Cardstock, scored at 5 1/2" for a top folding card.  I inked the Old World Paper  3D Textured Embossing Folder with Early Espresso Ink and ran a 5 1/2 x 4 1/4" piece of Cinnamon Cider Cardstock through the Big Shot.  I adhered the embossed piece over the front of the cardbase with Multipurpose Adhesive.  I used the second largest of the Stitched Rectangle dies to cat a panel of Bumblebee Cardstock.  I stamped the smaller sunflower from the Celebrate Sunflower Stamp Set in Crushed Curry randomly over the die cut panel.  I will be so happy when I get my In Color Inks but for now Crushed Curry over the Bumblebee gives the look of tone-on-tone.   I stamped the large Sunflower in Crushed Curry on another piece of Bumblebee Cardstock and used the large outline die to cut it out.  The detailed panel was cut out in a piece of Cinnamon Cider In Color DSP and in Early Espresso to layer them up for even more texture!  The layers were adhered only in the center of the flower with Multipurpose adhesive.  The center of the Sunflower was also cut out in Early Espresso and was popped up with a Stampin' Dimensionals.  The large completed Sunflower was then adhered with Multipurpose adhesive leaving some room at the edges to tuck in the leaves.

Garden Green Cardstock was used to cut out the leaf dies.  I added just a touch of Multipurpose adhesive on the leaves and tucked them under the edges of the Sunflower.  The sentiment was heat embossing in White on Early Espresso Cardstock and fussy cut and then added with cut up Dimensionals.  I added three Enamel In Color Dots to finish this one off!

Thanks so much for stopping in!  Blessings, Tina
