Cardmaking, Die Cutting, Essentials By Ellen

How To Add Easy Texture To Your Next Card

Are you looking for a little crafty inspiration? Maybe a way to add some clean, simple & easy texture to your next card? Well Carly is here today to share her new texture obsession, the Essentials by Ellen A2 Piercing Plate!

Have you guys seen the new Essentials by Ellen A2 Piercing Panel die? I’m kind of obsessed and I haven’t even used it for stitching yet, LOL! Here’s the stack of cards I’ve made so far…

I love the subtle texture it gives my cards! It’s clean, simple, and so easy!

I recommend doing all of your inking & stamping before using the piercing plate.

For all of the cards, I did a little masking & ink blending to create stripes. Then I added any stamping I wanted (like the pansy) and when the panels were dry, I ran them through my die cut machine with the A2 Piercing Panel.

And to complete the cards I added die cut sentiments and rhinestones.

Have I convinced you to try the piercing plate without stitching? Haha! I know I’m going to keep using the A2 Piercing Plate for texture A TON but I’m planning a stitched card soon too (I’ll share it on Instagram).

Have a great day!
