Berry Christmas and adding "Umph" to your Texturz

At the Stampin' Up! Wichita Regionals Saturday I received the Berry Christmas set from the Holiday Mini Catalog FREE! We made three projects with it there and I wanted to break it out right away when I got home! I came up with this fast and easy card:


I love the mod,dotty look of my wreath and berries and wanted to mirror that in my background texture so I chose to use the Texturz Backgrounds 1 Large Dot plate to add the fun dots to my Real Red cardstock. I recently learned via Kimberly Van Diepen how to make the texturz plates really pop by changing your sandwich in the Big Shot, so I made a quick YouTube video to illustrate how to do it.

For those that can't watch the video, use this sandwich in your Big Shot (bottom to top): Multipurpose Platform (Tab 2, all the way closed), Texturz Plate, paper, silicone rubber, cutting plate. You need some elbow grease to pump it through but its worth it!! It was hard to get the difference in the texture to photograph, but I tried below:
