Totally Textured

I have to touch things... to feel the texture of clothing and fabrics and even paper. It's special when something not only looks nice but feels nice too. With that in mind, I decided to incorporate texture into today's card -- a small, cute, quickie -- perfect for popping a sweet note in the mail.

My card base is 3.5" x 5" -- a small note card made from Kraft card stock. I love the way Kraft looks organic and earthy. To begin, I matted a strip of textured Baja Breeze onto Chocolate Chip. Textured card stock is a wonderful addition to your projects. In fact, I think it should officially be added to your wish list... or your shopping cart. ;)

Speaking of wish lists, get yours ready for the Occasions Mini. I'm so excited to share it with you next week. (SUBSCRIBE on my right sidebar to be sure you don't miss out on the FUN!) One of my fave new products are the Summer Love Rub-ons. I added a few to the main panel, as well as along the bottom border. Some 1" Double Stitched ribbon in Chocolate perfectly merges the gap between the two elements. For our Sassy Something today I wanted to use my Canvas Cuts. Have you seen these on page 177 in the Idea Book and Catalog? They are canvas, die cut shapes made to be used with the Fashion District Rub-ons. Stampin' Up! is so great about coordinating products!

My background for my canvas bloom is a Gallery frame stamped in Cameo Coral onto Very Vanilla textured card stock. A Baja Breeze corduroy brad provides the perfect middle - with perfect texture. Last, but never least, two Vintage Brads find a home in Ticket punched corners.

OMG, I'm dusting off my Canvas Cuts (and Fashion District Rub-Ons). I haven't done a thing with them and I love your card. Hugs, Mary
