Adding texture with tape

Happy Sunday, it's Jaclyn here today!  I hope you are enjoying the last bit of the weekend, and maybe even sneaking in a little crafting before the craziness of Monday rolls around.  I wanted to pop in quickly to share a card I put together, using a few simple supplies alongside some pretty lace tape.

At first glance this card is both simple and neutral, but what makes it special is all of the added texture it features.  The beige cardstock background has been embossed with an embossing folder, which adds subtle interest and dimension. 
But the real star of the show, is the pretty lace tape! As you might note, most of the design of the card is concentrated along the right edge.  The lace tape that peeks out as a border, along the right most edge of the cardstock adds subtle detail and loads of texture.  In addition, it also keeps your eye settled and focused on the small embellishment cluster, that is the highlight of the card.

What I also love about the tape, is that it has a fairly flat profile.  While it adds a great pop to your projects, it doesn't add too much bulk,  making a card like this one simple to slip in a envelop and send through the mail!

Thanks for stopping by!  I hope you'll be back tomorrow to see another fun project the design team has to share with you!
