The Striped Panel with Foam and Foil
Let’s make the stunning background for this Kitties Belated Birthday Card! Start by cutting a panel of cardstock. It doesn’t matter what color you use because you will be covering it up. Randomly apply a mix of 3D Foam Strips in 1/8″ width and 3D Foam Strips Large in White with a 1/2″ width onto it. The beauty of using these two products together they line up perfectly to make a striped pattern!
Flip the panel over and use your scissors to trim any excess. Remove some of the release paper from the strips and apply one color of foil onto them. Repeat this process with different colors of foil until your panel is completely covered with foil.
Embellish the Kitties Belated Birthday Card Panel
Stamp, color and cut a couple of kitties to place on the panel. Add some foam strips to the back of the kitties, as well as a little bit of thread.
Mount the kitties onto your panel, as well as a stamped sentiment strip. Create a top-folded card from white cardstock. Temporarily set your striped panel on it. Don’t adhere it down quite yet.
Randomly apply 3D Foam Circles onto your card. Cut some of them in half and place them along the edges of the card, as well as next to the striped panel.
Remove your striped panel and cover your circles with white flock. This will give your card base a fuzzy (and fun) faux-embossed look! Complete the card by adhering the striped panel to it!
I hope you are inspired to give the techniques featured on this card a try! Thanks so much for stopping by today!
