    Great work designers! I love adding layers and/or texture to my cards! A flat card is a bit too much like something you can buy in a shop tho so much cheaper to post. We should get a special discount for mailing art!

  44. 44
    Margo Smith says:

    I love adding textures – glittery gumdrops are perfect embellishments – still flat enough to mail, but sparkly enough to pop!
    I also love adding Stickles and Glossy Accents to nearly every card!
    The sample cards are so fun!!

  45. 45

    Cork and gumdrops, dry embossing and shakers…..awesome ideas for adding texture to a card….I love to use burlap especially for a masculine card.

    The team answered the dare wonderfully!! Always enjoy seeing their creations. I would have to say my fave is twine. I use it quite a lot, but I also love enamel dots and sequins. My embossing folders sit there unused most of the time, but they are perfect for adding texture.

  57. 57
    Kleri F says:

    Wonderful ideas !Hard to choose a favorite one! I usually add texture using dies, embossing (powders or folders) or glossy accents. But I do like the use of vellum or twine on certain cards.
