Touches of texture tutorial

Hi guys! I loved making yesterdays Design Project cards so much, I thought Id write up a tutorial, to get you inspired. Its Such an easy card!

Touches of Texture


***Base card: 5 and 7/8 inches by 8 and1/4 inches
***Faux Front layer: 4 and 1/8inches by 5 and 7/8 inches
*** stamp sets- Touches of Texture, and Me=grateful
***ink pads: melon mambo, wisteria wonder, daffodil delight, watermelon wonder
***extras- melon mambo/basic grey Designer series Paper (DSP) Tombo glue, dimensionals, winkofstella. matching ribbon or linen thread.

1-Cut a strip of DSP 1 inch wide by 5 and 7/8 inches (the width of the long side of the card)
2-Stamp your sentiment on the right hand side of your card, below where the DSP strip will go'

3-Stamp the flower elements on your card randomly. a good tip is to always stamp off the edge, so your elements never look crowded.
4-Use the eclectic block colour stamps in the touches of texture stamp set, to add colour to your flowers. They are not meant to fill your outline completely, and look a bit random. (especially the "random pile of letters on the melon mambo card!!!)
5-Glue your Designer series paper to the top of your card

6-Add a piece of ribbon/lace or linen thread to the top of your card, (I always put it on, and tape it to the back of the card-so I'm not wasting ribbon- and THEN add a bow to the front) just above the Designer series paper edge.

 7-Add your "faux card front" to your base card. This step hides ribbon attachments ect.
8- At this stage, if you choose to, you can stamp the bee/dragonfly out of the touches of texture stamp set, colour it with a blender pen or markers, and fussy cut the images out, and applied a dash of winkastella to add a little shine. I attached them to my card using dimensionals.
