for example, how 'bout embossing the texture on plaid patterned paper?
(cardstock: basic grey; patterned paper & diecute flower: my mind's eye; florals: prima; brad: making memories; ribbon: queen & co; rub-ons: creative imaginations; ink: colorbox)
or perhaps you'd prefer to make an overlapping frame on a card base, and highlight the petals on a pre-made diecut flower:
speaking of frames, a simple embossed channel would be a nice way to set off a line of inchies, wouldn't it? (you could also make a whole grid of them...or even highlight just one...)
(patterned paper: basic grey, k&co, paper company; rub-ons: hambly, scenic route; sticker: 7 gypsies; flower: prima; gem: mambi; ink: colorbox; chalk: pebbles; foam tape: 3m)
finally, i made some notched spaces in which to place sunburst rays of patterned paper, and then fashioned some nested 3-D stars as a centerpiece:
(patterned paper: basic grey; chipboard stars (used as templates): fancy pants; brad: making memories; other: color box inks, pebbles ink, foam tape)
