I was running low on inspiration and so I hopped on to SplitCoastSampers to see what others were doing. Well, I found some cards that were absolutely fabulous and so I started creating my own - I need three!
Traffic Jam card
I found a card that used the Traffic Jam embossing folder from Cuttlebug. I've had this forever, but haven't really used it. I like how the simplicity of the card allows the embossing to stand out. Here is the card that inspired this one.
Cardstock: The card base is a tan color from The Paper Cut, the darker brown is Sizzix suede and is embossed. The blue strip, which has a slight design on it, is from a pack of paper that is made with recycled paper and from Wal-Mart. I don't remember the company's name, but is has recycled in it. Accessories: Cricut All Mixed Up cartridge, Cuttlebug Swiss Dots and Traffic Jam embossing folders.
Cardstock: Rattan from The Paper Cut, mulberry paper from Marco's Paper, scraps.
Stamps: Happy Father's Day from Aunt Amy's
Ink: Adirondack Cabin Fever
Accessories: Large SU star punch, Cuttlebug embossing folders - D'Vine Swirls, Swiss Dots and one that I don't know the name of.
I used the layout from this card and used this card as the inspiration to add texture by embossing.
Cardstock: Jellybean green by The Paper Cut, mulberry paper from Marco's Paper, browns/tans are unknown and the striped paper is from the Safari pack by The Paper Studio.
Ink: I used black ink to edge the brown layer.
Accessories: brads, Cuttlebug embossing folders, Swiss Dots and ?.
Happy Father's Day!
