WPlus9 | Adding Texture to One Layer Cards. Video

A few weeks ago I shared a simple way to add texture and dimension video over on WPlus9 blog. In case you are not a subscriber of theirs, I’m sharing this video and project on my blog as well.

I rarely make one layer cards (even though I adore these kinds of projects) as I always feel the need to add something else, add one more layer, use dimensional adhesive and so on. By using the technique I’m sharing here I can add a bit of something extra to a card and still keep it a one layer project.

CARD DETAILS

It is rather hard to see, but if you look closely you can spot a bit of additional texture on each of these cards (I made 4 in total just because I wanted to play with different ink colors and also so that I could have a few cards like this on hand). What’s even more fun – texture matches to the stamped sentiment.

I started working on these projects by stamping wreath from the Fresh Cut Wreath stamp set from WPlus9 onto panels of white cardstock. I used my mini MISTI stamp positioner and double stamped each layer, you don’t have to do this, its more of a habit for me these days.

Once all of my stamping was done I created a DIY embossing folder or plate by using thick cardstock and a word die, any die can be used for this. I die cut the word die repeatedly and created a pattern. Next I embossed my stamped cardstock with the help of the DIY embossing plate in my Platinum die cutting machine.

To emboss with a DIY plate like this you will need to use embossing sandwich to emboss with dies (check the instructions manual for your die cutting machine) and a Tan Embossing Mat from Spellbinders. All Spellbinders machines come with this mat, but if you are using a different machine, I am not sure if it is included with the plates, so you’ll need to check that.

Here are a few more photos of the other cards I made using other colors of ink. everything else is identical on these cards.
