This card is perfect for so many different occasions! I love all the layers and textures with the ribbon, embossing, Designer Series Paper, and punched greeting. Also, I look thinking out of the box on ways to use your embossing folder. I used the Confetti Embossing Folder from the Occasions Mini Catalog! It is a border folder with an oval in the center but don’t let that hold you back. I slide this piece of cardstock in diagonal on the end of the folder. How fabulous is that?
I started with a Melon Mambo card base. I took a piece of Whisper White cardstock measuring 4″ x 5-1/4″. I slide the end of the white paper into the Confetti Embossing Folder at an angle. Slide it in just to the point that hits the flat oval spot. You could do it straight across or diagonal. You could even do the top and bottom. I added some of the It’s My Party Designer Series Paper which I am in love with right now! The colors are so fabulous and it’s a 12″ x 12″ Stack! Woot Woot! Then I wrapped some of the Crushed Curry Baker’s Twine around the card twice and tied it into a bow. With Baker’s Twine, I always double knot it tight before tying the bow. I added this piece to the card front and then started on the greeting. I stamped the greeting from the Party Wishes Stamp Set in Melon Mambo onto a piece of scrap Whisper White. I punched it out with the 1″ Circle Punch. Then I stamped the greeting again in Basic Black onto another scrap piece of white. I cut out the WISH card and added little banners to the ends. I used some of the Stampin’ Dimensional border to the back of “Wish” and placed it on top of the Melon Mambo Wish. Then I punched out some Basic Black with the 1-1/4″ Circle Punch and layered it. I added the greeting to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals! Love it!!!
