Remember the TV show “What Not To Wear”? The hosts, Stacey and Clinton, gave fashion makeovers and participants on the show were given new wardrobes. The hosts gave advice on selecting the new clothing and guests were told to pay special attention to pattern, texture and shine. Turns out this advice works for more than fashion!
If you have a layout or card that feels like it is missing something or if you’re looking to kick your designs up a notch, why not try adding texture with embossing? Close To My Heart just added embossing folders to our product line. There are 5 patterns of folders available: dot, chevron, quatrefoil, damask, and stripe. (All patterns are repeatable for larger papers.)
Our February promotion, Embossing is Boss, makes this technique easier to try than ever. Simply purchase any combination of 2 color cardstock packs, including single color or combo packs, and you can choose 1 folder FREE when prompted. (Kraft, White Daisy, Colonial White, and Paper Fundamentals cardstocks are excluded from this offer, but all other single color and combo packs are eligible.) Post your favorite pattern in the comments.
