This stamp set is really cute, and just the right idea for the card I needed. I wanted to send my cousin something fun. I also wanted to have some fun with my new embossing machine. It wasn’t a big expensive one, just a small one, but it works really well. So, I got out some blue cardstock and one of the embossing folders.
I wanted to do just the front, and I thought I could just do that without doing the back. It would save paper by not having to glue a separate piece to the front. So, I put the front of the card into the embossing folder, folded the back to the outside, and went for it.
Encasing it in the embossing pads, it went through the machine with just a few turns of the crank.
It worked just fine!
Of course, the embossing needed to be the star of the card, so the other elements were kept to a minimum.
The yellow dotted ribbon was glued on at an angle, then the ‘something’ element was added.
Inside, the sentiment was from another Stampin’ Up set, with the cute little bird.
Of course, my special stamp went on the back.
It went into the mail with season one on DVD of House of Cards. I hope she enjoys this show as much as I have.
Are you having fun this weekend? Anyone else a House of Cards fan?
