Tutorial Texturz Card

I've had several people ask for more detailed instructions for making this Texturz card. Here is a slightly different version that I made using the Stampin' Up! exclusive Little Leaves and Birds and Blooms Sizzlit dies.

Not Quite Navy cardstock: 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 in.
Bashful Blue cardstock: 5 1/2 x 2 1/2 in.
Rose Red cardstock: 5 1/2 x 3 in.
Scrap of Bashful Blue, Rose Red and Certainly Celery at least 2 1/2 x 2 1/2 in.
Stampin' Up Backgrounds Texturz Plates
Stampin' Up Little Leaves Sizzlit die
Stampin' Up Birds and Blooms Sizzlit die
1 inch circle punch
Rose Red Classic Inkpad
Garden Green Classic Inkpad
Not Quite Navy Classic Inkpad
Friendly Words Jumbo Wheel and handle

Creating the textured and inked cardstock is a four step process.

Step 1 is to run the Bashful Blue 5 1/2 by 2 1/2 in. piece and scrap through the Big Shot. Then lightly rub the Rose Red classic inkpad directly across the 2 pieces of textured cardstock. Use a light touch and move the pad in circles when applying the ink.

Step 2 is lightly rubbing the Garden Green classic inkpad in circles across the 2 pieces of Bashful Blue cardstock. Try to not overlap the Rose Red and Garden Green too much as the mixture doesn't make a great color.

Step 3 is adding Not Quite Navy in the same way that you used Rose Red and Garden Green. You can overlap the Not Quite Navy ink with the Rose Red and Garden Green. Be sure to leave the Bashful Blue cardstock showing in a few areas.

Step 4 is sponging Rose Red, Garden Green and Not Quite Navy where you want on the large piece of Bashful Blue cardstock. Again, use a circular motion when sponging the cardstock.

Using Rose Red, stamp "for you" on the scrap piece of inked and textured cardstock. Punch out with a 1" circle punch. Use the Big Shot to die cut the flower from Birds and Blooms in Rose Red and Little Leaves from Certainly Celery cardstock.
