Hello Rubber cafe fans. It's Amber here, today I have a fun embossed card to share featuring lots of goodies from April's Creative Cafe KOTM - Petticoat Fashion. I paired the "Curved Pennant" embossing folder from Echo Park's Petticoat & Pinstripes collection and the curved banner patterned paper from Echo Park's 6 x 6 Petticoats & Pinstripes Paper Pad to create my colorful banner at the bottom half of my card. Both the embossing fold and 6 x 6 paper pad can be found in this months Creative Cafe KOTM - Petticoat Fashion. The shimmery light pink cardstock, seam binding ribbon, and hello stamp I used can as be found in this months kit. Below you will find a step by step tutorial.
Step 1. Started by folding an 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" piece of light pink cardstock in half to create a 5 1/2" by 4 1/4" card base.
Step 2. Cut a 4 1/4" x 3' piece of white cardstock and emboss the entire panel with Echo Park's Petticoat & Pinstripes Curved Pennant embossing folder.
Step 3. Find the 6 x 6 piece of patterned paper in Echo Park's 6 x 6 Petticoats & Pinstripes Paper Pad that has the banner pattern printed and start fussy cutting the printed banners out. I adhered the colorful little banners right over the embossed banners I embossed in the step above.
Step 4. Adhere the embossed panel to the bottom half of your card base, add some gray seam binding ribbon to the upper half of the embossed panel, and tie some ribbon into a bow to add under you stamped sentiment. I adhered my ribbon with some staples but you could just adhere it with some double sided tape.
Step 5. Stamp your sentiment in black ink right above your ribbon towards the right side of you card. Once your sentiment is stamped add you tied ribbon to your card front.
That's it your finished, you now have a fun colorful embossed card to share with a friend or loved one. I hope you enjoyed my card and step by step tutorial today. Thanks for stopping!
