I have TWO cute Halloween projects and a fun technique to share today - woohoo! :}
If you've been reading for a while, you know I love texture on my paper-crafting projects. Embossing Folders are an easy way to add great texture, and I especially love when they become multi-taskers in my craft room (any Alton Brown fans out there?). On this card, I used both the Chevron and the Stripes Embossing Folders! :}
All I had to do to make the diagonal embossed stripes is lay the 1-3/4" x 4-1/4" strip of More Mustard card stock at an angle inside the Embossing Folder before running it through the Big Shot - easy peasy! I like how it coordinates with the diagonal stripes on the DSP (Howlstooth & Scaringbone).
And here's what the diagonal embossed stripes look like on a bookmark:
A great gift for the grade school librarian, don't you think?? :}
That pretty much wraps up my Halloween projects... did I make you want the Tricky Treats stamp set yet??? ;)
Oh, I do have one more Halloween project to share... a freebie on my Facebook Page! Happy Halloween!!! :}
