Embossed Stripes with Gemma

Hello everyone, this is Gemma from mygirllollipop.com. I am thrilled to be joining the fabulous WOW design team and am looking forward to sharing projects with you!

Today I’m sharing two cards featuring a fun striped pattern. This design is easy to recreate with your favourite colours of WOW embossing powders and glitters, and perfect for both masculine and feminine cards.

I began by cutting two 4 inch square card bases, along with two pieces of white card the same size.

I cut wide strips of stick it adhesive sheet, then used scissors to create uneven edges to the strips. If you prefer the straight edges, then you could skip this step.

I then adhered the strips to the white card panels, varying the width of strips for a more interesting design.

Next, I chose some WOW embossing powders and glitters in a nice mix of colours. I removed the adhesive backing from the first strip and added the embossing powder over the top. I then heat set it with the WOW heat tool. I continued this step until all the strips were covered. For the Sparkles powders, there is no need to heat set them. Just give them a good burnish with your finger to adhere the glitter to the adhesive strips.

I added each panel to a card base with liquid glue, then chose some sentiments to go with them. For the more masculine colours, I chose the Neat & Tangled Celebrate dies for a lovely bold sentiment.

For the softer, more feminine striped panel, I stamped a greeting from the MFT Anything-But-Basic Birthday Wishes stamp set on to a sentiment tag. I layered it with a piece of black and white striped paper, then used a tiny attacher stapler to add it to the card. A few pieces of foam tape at the other end helps to give it some dimension too.
