Embossed Stripes


Over at Less Is More their challenge 54 is for a one-layer card using stripes.  My brand new Stripes embossing folder arrived in the post yesterday - perfect for the job!

I embossed the bottom 2/3 of the card with stripes and then chose a sentiment from the Happiest Birthday Wishes stamp set (Hostess exclusive).  I stamped it in Versamark & then heat embossed it with silver powder.  It still needed something more - after humming and hahing I finally went for 2 lines of silver thread at the bottom of the card to complement the silver embossed sentiment.  All in all, a very CAS card.


Thanks for popping by! 

SU card: Whisper White
SU Inks: Versamark
