adding lots of texture with Lifestyle Crafts

Good morning!

Today I am going to share with you how to add texture to your cards by using products from Lifestyle Crafts. For these cards I used the following supplies:

Evolution tool with cutting/embossing platform, mat B for embossing
Lifestyle Crafts embossing folders ( Doily, Twinkle, woodland, Happy Birthday)
Lifestyle Crafts adhesive cork
Lifestyle Crafts dies (heart, circles, butterflies, photo corner)
We R Memory Keepers Albums Made Easy Tangerine kit
We R Memory Keepers enamel shapes (warm, cool, neutral)
We R Memory Keepers red North Pole chipboard alphas

Tiny Attacher stapler
white and colored cardstock

I gathered my materials and cut my card bases. I made the cards a standard 4.25x5.5 size when folded and cut the white cardstock slightly smaller to fit on the card front.It was this white cardstock that I embossed in the next step. 

To emboss, simply place your cardstock in the embossing folder and run through the Evolution machine. 

Here is what the cardstock looks like after being run through the machine: 

After embossing the white cardstock I added an embossed pattern to each of my card bases, added some cards from the Tangerine Albums Made Easy kit and the diecut pieces I made from the Adhesive Cork. I added some enamel shapes and my cards were just about done. 

Thank you so much for stopping by today!
