This was done by cutting triangles for the collar in both beige and the gingham plaid paper.  I just put the stitching on by making lines with a fine tip marker, so it isn't perfect, but it works.  The pocket was cut on the Explore using the cartridge Artiste.  The stamp is made to go with the cut and I thought it looked like a pocket, so I made the shirt to go with it.  ~Denise

This was made by embossing black paper with a folder from Darice.  I then rubbed it with silver Viva 3-D stamp paint.  It was layered on some red paper I had scraps of that had a sheen to it.  It was a really quick card to do.  ~ Denise

I used and old paper sack, a shop towel, a Little Yellow Bicycle metallic die cut and black ink.  ~ Gracie

This simple card was made using textures as the theme.  There are squares made of mettalic paper in two colors, suede and cork. The twine is another texture I added.  ~ Kathy
