CTMH New Embossing Folders
Get your ticket to the country fair with this Jubilee embossed card. 
It's country flair time at Heart 2 Heart so come play along with the flair.
Embossing with Jubilee paper pack. Emboss the top 2/3
of the card with the quatrefoil folder. Using the back side
attach a bow border and embellishments from the paper pack.
To make bow border cut two 1" bows and one 3/4" bow.
Cut the two 1" bows in half and place on each side of the card.
Place the 3/4"bow in the center and attach a bakers twine bow.
Embossing with Ariana paper pack. Emboss stripes 2/3 down 
from top. Add a Bow border made with Ariana papers and
embellish with some Ariana butterflies.
Embossing with Lollydoodle paper pack. Emboss the polka dots on 
the top 2/3 of the card. Punch 1/4" circles using the polka dot 
print paper. Using the glue pen randomly adhere the paper 
dots to the embossed dots. Make bow border.
Color it up with the chevron embossing folder. Emboss the top 2/3
of the card. Emboss three colors using scraps. Cut the colored chevron
stripes in single and double rows. Attach to the embossed area as desired.
Embossing with Balloon Ride paper pack. Emboss the top 2/3
of the card with the chevron embossing folder. Emboss some scraps
 of  Saddle, Sky, and Creme Brulee.Cut out the chevron stripes 
and attach to the card. Make the bow border and stamp a 
sentiment at the bottom. 
Embossed stripes with 2 colors. Cut each section as desired. Leave a 
gap between the 2 colors to add a sentiment and embellishments.

I just found your blog through one of your pinned cards on Pinterest. You do amazing things with an embossing folder! Thank you for sharing - One question about the bow border? How do you do that? Are the bows cut with Artiste?
