Hi friends! I have two cards Pinkfresh cards to share today, featuring the Color Block Diagonal Stripes Die. I love black and white stripe pattern papers, so I thought I would just make my own.
I die-cut a panel of black card stock, and made two backgrounds with it. I used every other stripe for each card. I incorporated more stripes for each card, using watercolors, and dry embossing. Let’s start with the Hugs And Good Vibes card.
I made a watercolored stripe background using Pinkfresh Studio Liquid Watercolors. I used a wide flat paintbrush to make the stripes, drying the paper before moving onto the next color. Once I was done, I white heat-embossed the sentiment, and trimmed the panel with Essentials: Ornate Banner die. I also die-cut an Ornate Banner frame for the panel, and made a pretty pink Artistic Bow.
I made the second bow in the Artistic Bows Die set for my next card.
For a second element of stripes for this card, I dry-embossed white card stock, using the Color Block Diagonal Stripes die. I followed the directions on my die-cut machine to do this. I die-cut the embossed card stock with the Ornate Banner die, and made another white frame. I added a stamped Modern Layered Bouquet, and a die-cut Phrase Builder- Hello.
I hope I have helped with ideas on making striped backgrounds. That’s all that I have for today. Thanks so much for stopping by!
