May Pals Blog Hop--Stepping Up With Textures




Welcome to the Pals Blog Hop for May 2017. We are thankful you stopped by to take a look at our 2017 Blog Hop monthly themes. This month we are featuring projects that are “stepped up” by using textures or fun techniques. We hope to provide you with lots of ideas and that you enjoy our creations.
You may just be starting the Blog Hop or may have come from the previous link from the Line-up on the Pals Blog Hop listing shown below.  The full lineup will help you move along from blog to blog so you may see all the projects.


I added texture to my Balloon Celebration birthday card by taking those Balloon Bouquet-punched balloons and running them through the Big Shot using the Softly Falling Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. All of the balloons fit in one pass through!


My background paper from Festive Birthday Designer Series Paper also gives the card a little dimension. What do you think? I'd love for you to leave your comments below!

Patti, I love the colors of your card :) Those textured balloons look like they are just about to float away into the sky. This is such a lovely project, thanks for sharing.
