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!
