A Little More About Adding Texture To Your Projects

The last few days, I have been spending time working on ways to add texture to your projects.  The card that I'm going to share today features "repeating" texture. 

To repeat the texture elements on this card, I used my Swiss Dot Cuttlebug Embossing Folder to add the texture to the black layers.  This is the first repeat.  I then used the flower image from the Close To My Heart stamp set called "Spring Up" (B1365) to make the 3D flower.  This is a terrific stamp set.  The flower image has the dots.  Once stamped, you cut it out along the lines provided and wrap it slightly to form the flower.  I hold it together with either glue dots or Liquid Glass.  The "dots" in the flower image repeat the embossed texture on the black layers.  By the way, the cake image is from a set called "Precious Love" (C1444) and the flowers were colored with my Copics.

I really like how texture adds interest to a project.  What do you think?  For Now, Happy Crafting!
