Creative Texture~~Challenge~~

Hi all! Today is the day for our first challenge ever! Are you as excited as I am? OK so for the details:


This challenge is ALL about texture.

Give your card that little something extra. This could be in the form of fabric, embossing, distressing, etc. You just want to be able to "see" the texture. I made two different project with this showing the new holiday sets. This used Holiday Sentiments. I wanted to try to make different kinds of cards and I have this great design paper that is embossed with glitter. I made regular A2 sized cards backs (4.25x5.5) and I used adhesive to put down the strip of design paper and then placed the die over the card and was able to cut through the folded cardstock. I now have mini Christmas note cards and this will make the perfect bulk thank you gifts or if you have a lot of cards to send out you bulk produce this project and make a lot of cards fast.

The above card uses turquoise. I love different color Christmas cards! They are always so unique. This card is pretty shimmery in real life but of course you can not see in the picture.


The above card Is embossed around the edges and the Christmas trees are also glittery and embossed as well. These cards were fun to make and I am thinking of making a lot of these to include with Christmas gifts.

OK now for the fun stuff! We want you to play along! Get some inspiration and show us your creativity!!! Of course their are rules. You must be a Creative Clear Stamps follower (super easy!
