Use Texture For The Christmas Card Club

Good morning and I apologise for my long absence.  Usually I am a  day early with my Christmas Card Club card but this time I am very late - an entire week!! Rachel was our hostess for this challenge and she has asked us to use texture on our cards.

My Card


Recipe
6" square base card - Rymans
lattice snowflake e/f - Creative Expressions
poinsettia e/f - magazine "freebie"
red and white  cardstock - Rymans
red foil card - from stash
white seam binding - from stash
tiny gold pearls - Meiflower

It wasn't easy to get a decent picture unfortunately. The light bounced off the foil and made it very bright, or the exact opposite and it was too dark.  I have chosen the best of a bad bunch.

Unfortunately although I do have some stencils, masks and texture pastes I don't have anything that would do for a Christmas card.  Instead I used two different embossing folders to give some texture and also ribbon and pearls.  Hope this is okay Rachel.  It has made me realise that I will need to get some Christmas masks though, so you have done me a favour!

Take care everybody and please keep warm and safe.
