Hello, friends! This week is all about TEXTURE here on the blog! There are a lot of ways to add texture that add wonderful dimension and depth to your projects, however, if you are looking for a cleaner look you can bring in texture to create fabulous visual interest. Today’s project shows you how to use various Bazzill cardstock textures together in a clean and simple design.
To create both this beautiful card and this gorgeous tag, I began with one of my favorite Bazzill Card Shoppe colors, Peanut Cluster. This is a fabulous soft kraft color and it is AWESOME for card and tag bases. I trimmed my card base, folded it, and then cut a simple rectangle for the tag.
I then layered Flamingo Monochromatic Cardstock rectangles over the Peanut Cluster. This adds a texture layer over my smooth layer without any business at all! LOVE IT!
Soft Shell Dotted Swiss comes in as the next layer. I kept this one a bit smaller, as I wanted it to essentially frame my focal point. While this adds a beautiful texture, I wanted it super subtle, so I layered larger pieces of Bazzill 40lb. vellum over the dotted swiss and monochromatic cardstocks for a pretty veiled look. (P.S. I sort of swear by Bazzill 40lb. vellum. It is the BEST. I love it. Lots. Super duper lots. For reals, though.)
To finish the card, I simply placed some GORGEOUS, metallic accented Heidi Swapp Memory Planner stickers for the images and the sentiments. I rounded the corners on the tag for a finished look before adding some coordinating ribbon to the design. I love how easy it is to add these pretty stickers and still have a stunning finished design!
I hope you leave this post today inspired to give texture a try! Bazzill Basics Paper offers SO many fantastic options when it comes to texture! Scrapbook pages, cards, tags, home decor projects… they work for all of it! And it is super fun to mix them up!
Have a Happy!
