Technique Tuesday - Creating Your Own Cards w/Texture

Hi friends, happy Tuesday!!

Here's a fun little tutorial that I came up with for our "Technique Tuesday" over on the Timeless Twine blog for creating your own pocket scrapbooking cards with some fun texture. :)

1.  Take some cards (color and size of your choice!)
2. and spray with any kind of color spray.  I used Heidi Swapp's Color Shine.
(I misted in the kitchen...shhhh, don't tell my husband!!)
3.  Put into embossing folder and run through whatever embossing machine you've got.

4 and 5 are the completed embossed cards.
6 was actually a happy mistake that I didn't know I was making.  One of the cards was placed differently than the other creating a de-bossed look.  Kind of fun!

After your cards are dry (I left mine out overnight!), then comes the fun part of decorating them.

I used Timeless Twine in Lemonade YellowAqua BluePurple Passion, and Bubblegum Pink to add even more dimension than the embossing made.  I also added a few sequins in (Raspberry Pink) for some added sass. :)
