For today’s card, I was inspired by yet another sample in the catalog — I changed mine up a bit by adding some ribbon and using a different sentiment and accents. I do love these colors together! I created the background by embossing a piece of Whisper White cardstock (3-1/4″ x 4-1/2″) with the Stripes embossing folder. I cut seven strips of Gumball Green cardstock (3/16″ x 4-1/2″) and glued them in the “valleys” of the embossed piece. The polka-dotted piece layered behind the sentiment is a stamp from the Layered Labels set. I stamped the image in Early Espresso ink, die cut it with the coordinating Apothecary Accents framelits die and cut it in half and attached one piece at the top and one at the bottom.

Here’s a masculine birthday card using the Blue Ribbon stamp set, as well as the new Soho Subway paper. To create the medallion, I cut a strip of Soho Subway paper 1-3/8″ x 12″ and then scored it every 1/4 inch. I also ran a VersaMark ink pad along one edge of this piece, applied Early Espresso embossing powder and heat set it.
