Also there are so many pre-made items you can purchase for embellishment as well as assorted types of inks and spritz- texture pastes- hardware the list goes on and on.
My favorite tool by far is my new Cameo Silhouette that dear hubby got me for Christmas. It is the absolute best! I can cut my own shapes and titles and manipulate the images myself on my computer to get exactly what I want.
I recently made football shapes that we made into cards in my monthly card class- these were a big hit
