Hello! Have you seen the latest genious technique by Betsy Veldman? Striped embossing! Super cool, right? So obviously, I had to try it. But because I wanted to do diagonal lines, I had to come up with a different way to do it, or it would have taken ages. So instead of a stamp and Versamark, I used a die cut word and scor-tape.
What do you think? Here's the complete card. I added the detail pic first because in the whole card one the bursts stamped with Perfect Pearls don't show.
To make the striped embossing, I adhered stripes of scor-tape diagonally on to a piece of cardstock and die cut the word from there. Then, I applied the embossing powder one color at a time. The card was finished with an ampersand (Laura Bassen and Laurie Willison were my inspiration for jumping on the ampersand wagon. Just look at the beauties they made!). The die cut is this one from PTI and the alphabet is this one from Lawn Fawn. The bursts are from a special PTI set, but I just can't remember the name.
Thanks for stopping by :)
