Last Week’s Card & (Your) Cuppa – Stripes & Splatters Embossing Folders

For last week’s Card & (Your) Cuppa online class, I chose to use the new Stripes & Splatters 3D Embossing Folders from the Mini Catalogue.

Stripes & Splatters Embossing Folders. Project designed by Karen at HIPPOFROG Designs

I’m a fan of splatter backgrounds and love stripe projects, so these embossing folders jumped into my shopping basket!

As I wanted to make the project a little grungey, I chose a colour combination of Crumb Cake and Very Vanilla with Pale Papaya as a contrast.

It is a version of one of my angles projects, but I don’t remember teaching one at Card & (Your) Cuppa before.

The layer is given a touch of grunge using a Sponge Dauber and Crumb Cake ink. Both it and the Very Vanilla piece are stuck down at an angle.

Next, each rectangle is cut to the required length and given a grunge effect. The Crumb Cake piece is scrunched and the creases are picked out using a  Sponge Dauber. After the Pale Papaya piece is embossed, the stripes are again highlighted using a Sponge Dauber.

For the Very Vanilla piece, it is again embossed, using the the splatters folder. This time it is highlighted using both Crumb Cake and Pale Papaya.

They are all then stuck down at different angles.

A sentiment from the Blossoms in Bloom Stamp Set, with a short piece of ribbon is added on top of a coiled length of coordinating Baker’s Twine.

For more of a grunge look, the ends of the twine are frayed.

Finally, some Genial Gems in Pale Papaya are dotted around the project.
