Textured Cardstock: What to do with it! What's the benefit?
As you know, the special for the month is the textured cardstock collections. I have been playing with this over the past week or so and want to give you some tips and hints!
1. Use it on cards to dress them up a bit. It gives simple cards a classier look.
2. You really get two coordinating colors. The "back" of the cardstock is a lighter color than the front. On this card, I used the back of the baby pink for the bottom strip.
3. When you ink the edges, the texture stands out for a great "distressing" effect.
4. Use textured cardstock to cover dimensional elements, it adds even more dimension.
More techniques to come in a future post. Stay tuned!
