I just HAD to try this awesome technique using the Stripes Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. I love this look of gingham and in Whisper White and Baja Breeze, it’s simply gorgeous!
Here’s how I accomplished this look:
- Using the brayer, ink up one side of the Stripes embossing folder.
- Sandwich in your card stock and run it through the Big Shot like normal.
- Again, ink up the same side of the Stripes embossing folder.
- This time, turn your card stock 90 degrees and run it through the Big Shot again.
See? So simple…I bet you’ll have to give it a try (if you haven’t already).
The bow is another cheater. I took a looped piece of the lovely Baja Breeze Seam Binding Ribbon (that I swore I didn’t like) and pinched it in the center with this lovely Antique Brad (really loving these brads). Fuss a bit with the tails and it’s a perfect bow! Notice once again the Eyelet Border edge that I ran through the Crimper? I told you that you’d see it again! You’ll see it once again…soon!
I ended up putting a birthday sentiment on this card and gave it to my sister-in-law for her birthday. Wouldn’t it make a lovely baby card? Hmmm…
Thanks for stopping by. I hope you’ve been inspired to give this gingham look a try.
