Experimenting with Texture

 Hello friends, 

It is a constant battle to add texture to cards, but not to much that we have to pay extra postage.  Today I wanted to experiment with two different methods.   For my first card I used a die to cut a stamped panel.  I used low profile foam to pop up each of the rays that are coming from the heart.  I love the way it breaks up the background stamp. It makes interest to what would have been an otherwise flat panel.  

In my second example, I used and embossing folder to add texture to a stamped panel.  This didn't add as much dimension as die cutting the panel, but I think it still adds interest to an otherwise simple panel.  

What is your favorite way to add dimension to your cards?
