Playing with Touches of Texture

August 15, 2017

Today’s card, came about because I saw one where a card had been created using the Touches of Texture stamp set with some fussy cutting.  The card was gorgeous and much more detailed than mine but I am happy with my card none the less.

I attached the Be Merry Designer Series Paper to the left hand side of Whisper White card.  Don’t you love it when you can use something in a way other than the purpose for which it was designed!  I stamped the greeting from the Best Birds stamp set onto the lower right hand corner using Rich Razzleberry ink.  I attached the Whisper White card to scored and folded Rich Razzleberry card.  I stamped the flower image from the Touches of Texture stamp set onto Shimmery White card using Garden Green ink.  I used my Aqua Painter to move the ink around to colour in the leaves.  I stamped the image once more onto Shimmery White card using Rich Razzleberry ink.  Again I used an Aqua Painter to move the ink around and colour in the flowers.  Once they were coloured in I cut out all the flowers and attached them over the stamped Garden Green image.  I cut the image using one of the Layering Ovals Framelits Dies and attached it to a scalloped oval cut from Rich Razzleberry card using the same dies.  The image panel is attached to the card front using dimensionals.

I kept the inside of the card pretty simple by adding a strip of Rich Razzleberry card behind one long edge of the same Be Merry Designer Series Paper before attaching to the bottom of the Whisper White card.

I think the fussy cutting on this card was totally worth it.  It gives the image so much dimension because the flowers seem to pop off the stamped image.  I’d love to hear what you think.

Bye for now,

    Beautiful. One of my favourite sets & you have used it to perfection. Never thought to fussy cut the flowers so will have to give it a go. Great use of the Christmas DSP too – multiple uses, gotta love that
