Decorate Your Cards with Architextures Trinkets

Have we ever mentioned how versatile Architextures are? We probably have but it won’t stop us from saying it again!
So… You know how cool the Architextures papers are and how great the bases work to add textures to any project; you also know that our rub-ons can be added to almost any surface available.
Today, let’s focus on using Trinkets as delicate embellishments to make our greeting cards super-special!

Two of our Crew members, have made two very different cards using the same set of Architextures Trinkets – China Tea Cups.

Monica Taylor – traditional card

‘My Mother-in-Law had a tea cup collection. It was something she collected her entire life. After many years of collecting, she decided it was time to pack them up. Before she did this, she let me pick whatever ones I wanted. I picked out a few and display them proudly. She has since then passed away. These little cups bring back nice memories of her.’ – explains Monica.

I am a mixed media crafter with passion for layers and textures. Architextures are my new love and I can feel the relationship going from strength to strength in the foreseeable future. I have worked with CCB since January 2017 and it felt like home straight away. The team is amazing and the crafting products are even better, which makes it perfect combination and an amazing place to be.
