Hello there, Martha Lucia here with a fun and easy technique to add texture to your cards without tons of dimension!. Let me share this Faux Texture Friendship Card with the directions.
Add Faux Texture
First, I die cut the Modern Bloom Die onto the lighter color of card stock. Then, I pasted it directly over a second layer using the Dual Tip Glue Pen.
I added a thin coat of the Dual Tip Glue Pen on the back of the die cut layer and pressed softly over the darker layer. I let the adhesive dry for a few seconds before continuing with the texturing process.
Then, with a detailed cover die, the Dotted Swirls Debossing Cover Die, I added the second texture to the decorated layer. For it, I just passed the entire piece through my die-cut machine to create the dotted effect.
With the E-Z Runner Grand Ultra Strong Refillable Dispenser, I pasted the textured layer directly over a white smooth card base.
Wear Your Adhesive on the Outside with Foil
I put a small piece of white smooth cardstock onto the Adhesive Sheet 4×6 inch, following the simple instructions printed on the liner of the sheet.

I die cut the word friend making sure the adhesive part is on the top of the word. Then, I removed the liner to expose the adhesive, and with the foil color UP with the green foil from the Metallic Transfer Foil Sheets Pastel Colors, gently rub to transfer the color into the word.
Additionally, I used Adhesive Sheets 4×6 inch to adhere the foiled word to the shadow shape. I just needed to turn out the word and repeat the process following the instructions of the Adhesive Sheets 4×6 inch.
To place the layered word to the decorated card base, I used 3D Foam Squares Micro White.
I stamped a sentiment on a strip of white cardstock and adhere it with 3D Foam Squares Micro White. Also, die-cut a few different stars and randomly roll the E-Z Runner Petite Permanent Dots Refillable Dispenser on top. Then foil them with the same green color from the Metallic Transfer Foil Sheets Pastel Colors.
Here is a close-up look of the faux texture on the card and how the foil added an extraordinary touch!
