On my blog you will see this card made two different ways. One using the Tutti Frutti Cards and Envelopes from the 2018 Sale A Bration catalog. The second made to look similar using the Simple Stripes embossing folder. The instructions for this card are for the latter.

Cut Whisper White Thick card stock 5.5 x 8.5, score at 4.25 and fold to make a standard A2 card.

Cut regular Whisper White card stock 4.25 x 5.5

Prepare for embossing by following these steps. Read through to see tips on getting the embossing done correctly.

a. Ink the Simple stripes embossing folder using a sponge brayer and Lemon Lime Twist ink pad. Ink the side of the folder that has the wide part of the stripes raised.

b. Once inked, spritz the Whisper White card stock lightly with water, place into the embossing folder, close and run through the Big Shot.

When placing the card stock in the folder line the top edge up tight to the fold of the folder, this will make sure the lines are straight.

When inking the folder be sure to ink a little past the fold so that there is color clear to the edge. Dont worry if some gets on the back of this piece as it won't show later.

The embossed piece may be a little bit delicate so be careful removing it from the folder once embossed. If it starts to fall apart just keep the pieces in order it wont matter once they are taped down onto the card front.

One more thing embossing may make the piece a bit bigger so you may need to trim the edges a bit if they overlap the edges of the base card.

Attach the embossed piece to the card front. Do this by placing the adhesive onto the front of the base card (not on the back of the embossed piece)

I placed adhesive around all four edges of the card base and then added three stripes of adhesive from side to side across the card front.

This asures that even if the embossed piece is coming apart a little it will all stay in place.
