Technique Tuesday - Texture Blog Hop

It's time for another Technique Tuesday Blog Hop.  This month we are focusing on Textures.  I love adding textures to cards and it's easy to do when using an Embossing Folder.

My card today features the new Stampin' Up!® Fern 3D Embossing Folder.  I love this embossing folder!  Check out my card which also features the new Stampin' Up!® In Colors.


  1. Cut Starry Sky card stock 5 1/2" x 8 1/2".  Score at 4 1/4" and fold on score line to form card base.
  2. Cut Tahitian Tide card stock 4" x 5 1/4"
  3. Emboss Lovely Layers Vellum using the Fern Embossing Folder
  4. Adhere to the Tahitian Tide card stock.  Apply adhesive in the middle of the vellum so that it doesn't show
  5. Cut 2 pieces of Woven Metallic ribbon in Starry Sky and Tahitian Tide about 20" long.  Adhere about 1" from bottom. Tie a bow
  6. Adhere to the card base.
  7. Color sentiment using the In Color Stampin' Write Markers
  8. Stamp in Basic White card stock
  9. Cut out using die from Fabulous Frames Dies
  10. Adhere outside frame to card base
  11. Adhere sentiment piece using Dimensionals.
  12. Adhere embellishments
  13. Cut Basic White card stock 4" x 5 1/4"
  14. Adhere to the inside of the card base.

You can find all of the supplies for this card in my Online Store.
