Anyway, I'm here today without a card but have a TIP to share with you, which I am also submitting for Top Tip Tuesday as well. My Tip is to show you how you can make your own textured card.. just like the linen card, with just a piece of cloth and your die-cutting machine!!! Interested? Then read on.. very simple.
Layer the cloth in between the plates, I added two pieces of the card as it wasn't that thick, and then pass through the machine.
This is the result
and this how the card was before.. just plain and smooth.
I also tried layering it in between the embossing mats.
And here is a good result again.
.. I've been using this method for some time now as on these cards.. the blue card on this one..
the pink card on this card
and all the white card on this one as well.
I found this piece of cloth that I used while sorting out my craft room last time.. remember I had mentioned that I found some stuff while clearing up.... YES I do keep all sorts of stuff!.. and this is another thing I found.. an old plastic folder which my kids had used for school. I had kept it too!!! .. BUT found good use to it now :D
I cut a piece from it and layered it as before and passed it through the machine.
This is the result ..
and this is a card I did using this method. ..the blue card. Go to the original posts of these cards for a closer look at the textured cards.
I hope you like my tip and try it out. I also have some pieces left from the cloth and from the blue plastic, I think I can cut out about six or more pieces. .. so if you would like a piece, just leave me a comment on this post letting me know you'd like a piece.
Thank you for looking.
Hope you are having a nice weekend.
