No Patterned Paper

Hi everyone, this week at Cardz 4 Guyz Helen has chosen for the theme 'No Patterned/Designer Paper'. An opportunity to get out your inks, embossing folders, making a mess, if needed creating your own backgrounds or once again going clean and simple. I saw a technique on You Tube I wanted to try, it has partially worked but not as great a success as I hoped for. I adhered 3 strips of aluminium tape to a piece of white card, I smeared my Cuttelbug folder with Black Soot ink, embossed the prepared card, Most of the ink came off in the drying process. I don't think I'll be trying it again.
Materials used -
White, red and black card stock.  Aluminium tape (DIY) Cuttlebug Embossing Folder, ribbon and black gems. The stamp is from a very old set from Tandastamps, stamped onto red card with Memento Black in pad.


  1. Love the checkerplate background here Caz. I recognise the stamp but mine's from Funstamps a very long time ago, in fact one of my first purchases!

  2. The aluminium tape looks terrific embossed and you picked the perfect embossing folder. Fun card!
