MC Sept - Dots & Stripes - Thanks

Love the clean and simple lines of this card and the colored dots are a background I resurrected after having a friend tell me about the technique of making a bar code background. I did mine with a bit more of a twist. And I use my ribbon punch technique you can find HERE

I also used those slim embossing folders, running them through my Cuttlebug all in one shot and then using my Scor-It to make embossed lines between the designs. Love this technique which I've never used before. The combinations are endless.

Of course I used a Quietfire Design rubber stamp. Click on card to see close ups and descriptions etc. Enjoy

And it fits for a whole bunch of challenges:

Your card is so pretty, and what a useful tip about the slimline embossing folders. I must give that one a go to make a complete background like you have, very clever.

Thanks for joining us at Crafty Cardmakers and inspiring me to get mine back out and play.
