Today, the card I have for you is an ode to the lovely collection of paper in the In Good Taste suite. If you follow me at all, you know I love texture. Visual interest adds so much richness and depth to a card. And this paper makes it so easy.
Starting with a base of Very Vanilla, I added the paper that looks like reclaimed wood planks as my base layer. Then I added three strips of 3/4″ pieces on the diagonal: a wood grain, a tweed, and the pattern that reminds me of a man’s sweater.
Next, I added another layer of Very Vanilla, this time with the paper that has that vanilla nubby texture. I’m telling you—so much texture! I cut the shapes for the multi-layered sentiment using the dies that came in the suite. Those dies are going to see a workout in my craft room long after they retire (not this year). The shapes are fantastic for sentiments and stack so well. I stamped the sentiment from Enjoy the Moment in Early Espresso.
Lastly, I stamped the flower from the Tasteful Touches set on Very Vanilla using Early Espresso. I added a touch of Rococo Rose with the Stamp n’ Blends right in the center. That’s a small taste of the patterns in this set of DSP. It’s a must-have.
I hope you’re finding ways to add visual interest to your cards with texture. If not, give it a try. I have some tips on my Textures page. Until next time, happy crafting!
