Burgundy Stripes with Kraft Panel - Before and After


My "before" card (at bottom of post) was one-of-a-kind, using a short scrap of hole-y paper from a friend's ribbon box.  When I tried to identify it, I learned it was the backing from a type of veneer tape.  Perfect for a thank-you note for this friend, whose cards make creative use of all kinds of "found" materials.

I liked the design well enough to make more, with card stock instead of veneer tape backing.  My hole-y die was narrower than the tape backing, with larger holes, and it looked better in a portrait orientation, with wider embossed stripes from a different embossing folder.  But the overall "after" effect (at top of post) is very close to the original.  Thank you, Judy, for sharing your stash and inspiring my cards!
