Cards, Cards, Cards - May 29 - embossed strips

Our last card!! These feature strips that are taped to each other, cut to size and then embossed with an embossing folder!! I just chose strips of cardstock from my scraps bucket and add coordinating colours of cardstock strips to make up a piece big enough to cut a 4" x 5 1/4" piece from it. Used different embossing folders for each combination and glued them to coordinating card fronts. I added a coordinating tag (SU small and large tag punch) with a little ribbon accent. Some chose not to staple their ribbons - just glued them between the layers or behind the tag instead. Same sketch - very different look depending on what colours are used. By varying your tag greeting it can be for any occasion!! This sketch can easily be rotated to create portrait cards!!

Cards with versatile designs and are fairly quick to put together. A win - win in everybody's book!!
