Creation Station Blog Hop - "Texture"

Welcome to Just Julie B Stampin'! And welcome to the Blog Hop for July - we are creating with Textures! We're using all kinds of textures - embossing folders, embossing powder or even embossing paste! I Love simple, easy, but beautiful - and embossing folders fit that bill for me! And I'm at my second home, where I have limited supplies - But, I did bring some new supplies that came in the mail right before I headed to my other house. So that's what I decided to use.

I mostly used the Merriest Moments Hybrid Bundle - which I Love!! I first die cut this fabulous piece using Evening Evergreen Cardstock. And then used the embossing folder to add this fabulous detail -   

How beautiful is that Evergreen embossed piece?! I Loved it so much that I decided that it need to be set off with only a bunch of other Crumb Cake parts!

I added a flat Crumb Cake Cardstock layer and a Tasteful Textile embossed layer to the background. (The Tasteful Textile Embossing Folder is definitely my go-to folder for almost any background - it's so versatile!) And I wrapped some Linen Thread around those layers..

And that Linen Thread was finished with a Linen Thread bow! And did you notice the Evergreen bling?! It's really just the Basic Rhinestones, but I added Evening Evergreen Stampin' Blends to color them! 

And just to be clear - the card was all mostly parts from the Merriest Moments Bundle - but the saying was a stray - it came from the Christmas to Remember stamp set. But, what do you think? Do you think with that saying on the front, it could be a card for a birthday?! I think maybe so?!... 

But back to "Texture" - I love the texture and layers of this card!! It's simple with the colors, but really has a lot to it! Sometimes Wrapped Linen Thread and just lots of cardstock layers - it all adds up to more texture!!

I hope you enjoyed the card, and the bit of a Sneak Peek! And don't miss what the fabulous Kirsten Kreuzer has in store for us! Can't wait to see what see has posted... Click below -
