Welcome Crafting Friends!
Today’s tip is about adding dimension and interest to your cards. If you stamp cards or spend any time scrapbooking, chances are you are always looking for new ways to add texture and tp make your projects more interesting. One of the easiest things you can do to make your project unique is to try embossing folders.
First, embossing folders can be used to create an interesting background with different color strips of paper that will make your design pop.
Second, you can add texture to enhance the design. With a light touch and an inked sponge, the embossing folder was used to created pebbles for the beach scene below.
If a card design seems a little flat or uninspired, and you want to add a little something for that WOW Factor, look for at least two ways to add texture such as:
- Embossing folders
- Dimensionals and Foam Adhesive Strips
- Heat embossing using Stampin’ Up! embossing powders
- White Perfect Accents and Enamel Shapes
- Buttons and Charms
