- I started with an embossing folder from The Paper Studio. I love Embossing folders! The uses are unlimited. A background stamp might work a little better but I don't have backgrounds stamps at this time.
- I stamped the raised side of the folder with Perfect medium from Ranger and then I placed a 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" card stock on top and gently rubbed the paper to transfer the medium onto it. This can be tricky. You have to make sure you don't slip the paper around.
- I then used white embossing powder and heat set it (When Jennifer did her card she used white ink.)
- I used the Jumbo Stripes from Simon Says Stamps and used Fuchsia, Buttercup, Seafoam and Hydrangea chalking ink from Powderpuff. I guess we have to learn from trying right? I see now that I should've used a different ink. Chalk ink dries so fast and I had to re-stamp several times to get the coverage I wanted.
- Anyway, moving on....when I finally got the ink the way I wanted it I cut the paper between two of the stamped lines and added craft foam to the back. This gave me a chance to set back the sentiment. craft foam is cheaper then foam tape and gives you the same result. This is another trick I learned from Jennifer McGuire :)
- The sentiment is from the Happy Messages clear stamp set from Stampendous. I used a dye ink and it has a bit of a distressed look to it.
- After that I just adhered the stripes onto the card and trimmed them down to cover the front of the card.
This is a very easy card to make and I just loved the one Jennifer McGuire did and I had to try it. I hope you like the card! Please leave a comment below to let me know what you think. Don't forget to post your photo's in the comments, too! I love to see what everyone is making. I hope you all enjoy the rest of your weekend.
