PWC 248 - Terrific Texture

This week's challenge at Paper Pretties is "Terrific Texture".  Texture adds visual interest to your cards and there's many ways you can add texture to your card.  Here's what I did - the bottom layer of green card stock was dry embossed with a folder that looks like script hand writing   A gathered ribbon and cord were wrapped around the yellow striped layer.  It's not easy to see that the circle dies have an embossed circle.  Stickles were used on the icing and on the 4 leaf clover.  Besides these I can think of a few other things you can do to add texture.  Glitter, Flower Soft and Liquid Applique work well.  You can score lines too.  Use fabric or burlap even chip board can add texture.  That's a lot of ways to add texture to your cards and there's probably more but right now that's all I can think of.  If you pop over to the Paper Pretties challenge blog you can see what the rest of the pretty girls created.  After you've made your card link it up so we can see what you've made.

stamp -  Paper Pretties "Holiday Sweets II clear"
