As a follow-up to yesterday's introduction of the embossed tape technique, I promised to show the cards I made with the tape I created.
I used the red and gold tapes to frame out a sticker with red and yellow in it. I trimed around it and rounded the corners. I used a horizontal band of gold cardstock to pick up the gold in the embossing and cut a flag end on the right. A printed background of text (love) was layered with a red hexigon and a black/white chevron. Red and yellow layers around the frame and a gold peel-off greeting finish it up.
I used another of these little girl stickers for the second card, framing it with the green and silver tapes. I built a card base for it with yellow and green topped with black pinstripe and silver. The silver has a textured stripe on it. I cut a pre-stamped greeting strip with flag ends on both sides and curved it for interest. The center is popped up on foam but the ends are flush with the background. I echoed the flowers in the sticker with three white paper flowers and added yellow rhinestones to the centers.
With the use of metallics in the layering papers the metallic embossing really stands out.
