(of paper, cardboard, yarn, etc.) thickness, especially in relation to weight
Now everyone knows that bulk = more money when it comes to mailing a card and since I mail out a lot of cards ( as a Cricut Card Fairy ) I need to keep the bulk down. One of the ways you can add texture without adding height to your card is by using ribbon. You can see I added some rick rack ribbon on the bottom of the doll ( replacing the strip of paper that would have been cut out by the Cricut ) So think ribbon instead of paper for texture.
Look closely and you will also see I added some lime green satin ribbon behind the opening of the flower and added some glossy accents to the heart. Both great ways to add texture to your card without adding more bulk.
And since the recipient loves nesting dolls I thought I would carry the theme a little further by adding another smaller doll on the inside of the card. And a little stickling adds some nice bling!
( more texture!! )

Now if it was only this easy to remove some bulk off of my own body....
ribbon wouldn't work... would it?
