When I make cards I normally only make one of each design but I know a lot of crafters make a couple of each design while they’ve got everything out. Well for my work birthday cards I’ve decided to make two at a time – same design but different colours.
My ‘off cuts’ supply seems to have grown lately so I thought I’d use a trusty design to create these two cards. To create these cut a piece of copy paper to 10cm x 14.4 then adhered strips of cardstock – Early Espresso/Crumb Cake and Night of Navy/Crumb Cake – until the copy paper is fully covered. The strips can be different widths or all cut to the same width.
I then dry embossed the cardstock with different embossing folders. Here I’ve used the new Stone 3D Embossing Folder which is part of the Power of Hope Bundle in the Sale-A-Bration brochure. To receive this bundle FREE you need to place an order of NZD$220.00. Once it’s been embossed I die cut out a Stitched Rectangle.
For this one I used the new Tropical Weave 3D Embossing Folder from the Tropical Oasis Suite in the new Mini Catalogue – check out page 38-40. The ‘Happy Birthday’ is a retired die – one I won’t be getting rid off. This ‘Happy Birthday’ has been die cut from Very Vanilla and Merry Merlot with the two being adhered together off centre. This helps to make the words stand out against the background mat.
So if your off cuts supply is getting a bit unruly why don’t you try this design.
Until next time …
