Easy Textured Christmas Card Tutorial

Adding texture and patterns to the Lady Pattern Paper papers is a fun way to create interest. There are different ways like embossing folders, punches, die-cuts, stamps and stencils. Today I am using a stencil and modelling paste to add both a texture and a pattern on to my papers making for something really interesting.

Step 3

TIP: Modelling paste and texture paste are basically the same thing. My modelling paste is slightly textured giving a rough feel to the touch. You can colour modelling paste and texture paste using acrylic paint, dye inks, pigment powders and mists. This will make for a fun twist to the normal white version giving you loads of creative opportunities.

Hope you enjoyed this quick and easy textured Christmas card tutorial. Happy card making!!!
