Want to create a fun new handmade card with your embossing folders? Try this idea using scraps of paper and your favorite embossing folder for a striped rainbow card for any occasion!  Stop by my blog to see just how to create a striped embossed cardmaking project using dies, cardstock and embossing folders from Spellbinders



 
Today's projects feature some BRAND NEW goodness from Spellbinders, and I'm totally in LOVE. I'm thrilled to share our brand new 100 lb. cardstock which comes in 30 of the most beautiful, fresh colors. In addition, you'll find a whole variety of new products live in the Spellbinders shop today, like the embossing folder and dies I'm using on today's cards. 

Let's take a look at the striped embossed technique on today's first card. It's quite easy, and it's a great way to use up scrap paper. Here we go:

  • Trim a white cardstock rectangle just smaller than a card base. (4x5.25")
  • Trim strips (or collect scraps from your stash) of any colors of cardstock. I used 5 of the brand new Spellbinders colors: Lagoon, Teal Topaz, Pink Sand, Dahlia, Wild Berry
  • Lay the strips right next to each other and tape them to each other with washi or Spellbinders Best Ever Craft Tape (it's like washi, but better!!!) You can use your white panel to eyeball the size and arrangement. You'll be adhering the strips to that panel later.

  • Next, lay the taped strips in an embossing folder and run through diecutting machine. This new embossing folder is called Simply Perfect Florets and it embosses so deeply and clearly, especially on this 100 lb. cardstock, I'm just so impressed every time I use it!

  • Finishing off this card is simple because the embossed rainbow stripes are the star of the show. Don't even bother removing the washi tape from the back, and just adhere them to the white cardstock panel. Then, add that to your card base. A die cut sentiment and a few sparkly gems complete this card. (The Simply Perfect Mix & Match Sentiments dies are brand new in the shop today!)

The Kaleidoscope Plaid set is made up of three dies. Die cut each in a different color and layer them to achieve this amazing plaid panel. Four panels will fill a normal card base, or use just one like I did on this card. They fit perfectly on slimline cards and gate fold cards too! The possibilities are actually endless with this cool set.

I paired the plaid panel with a fun floral die set called Simply Perfect Layered Blooms. This set can be layered and used in so many ways. Then I finished off the card with another  scripty sentiment. I think what I love about all of these new products the most is that they can be mixed, matched, layered and put together in so many ways. They are truly versatile products we'll use again and again. And the new cardstock - dang, you guys, it cuts, embosses, die-cuts, and stamps SO nicely.
