Texture Roll is a really fantastic product with so many uses, discover some of my favourites below!
- Works great with 3-D Embossing and firmly holds the design.
- The larger sizes were are scaled to work well with Scoreboard Dies
- The new 6" sizes are sized to also work with the Scoreboard Dies and to cut them down to an easier shape for 3-D embossing.
- The non-metallic texture rolls can have Sizzix Effectz and inking added to them for a mixed media effect.
- Texture Rolls are very durable materials and don't rip easily.
- Texture Roll has all the qualities of cardstock plus the ability to stitch without tearing!
Today I created a fun card with a rocky mountain effect by scrunching the tan Texture Roll. Top tip: There is also mat grey which would work well for this.

Cut a square out of your texture roll just above half the size of your card, this should be larger than you need. We will be cutting this down to size.
Scrunch and twist your texture roll by hand. This creates a wrinkled leather effect. The Texture Roll won't become weak or tear when scrunching and twisting which is amazing!
As I am using 3D foam tape, I decided to use some spray mount to mount my wrinkled Texture Roll to a sheet of sturdy card stock. Then, I trimmed to size using a paper trimmer.
From cardstock, cut three more squares exactly the same size. Using scissors, cut hill shapes into the tops of the squares so that when layered on top of each other the tops are all visible. I used caramel toffee and the light beige from the neutral card pack for the hills, then a mid green from the Festive cardstock pack. I wanted to give the effect that the hills are getting lighter in the distance.
Using the Big Shot machine, Die cut all the elements shown in the image above, changing letters for your chosen sentiment. Tear across the the mid green card stock to create the grass level. I used Arctic Sky and Mermaid Kiss card stock for the hot air balloon element, and white for the letters.
The Sun element is one of the smallest circles from the Tim Holtz Circle Play Die set, I cut this from Banana Blast.
Finally, put it all together! Layer the hill and grass elements with 3D foam tape to add dimension then add to your card base.
I really love this make. Adventure is something I'm passionate about and dreaming about it is what is getting a lot of us through the pandemic. Here's to an adventure filled future ?
