Paper Towel Backgrounds Technique Tutorial By: Erika Martin http://www.stampinmama.comhttp://www.papercraftplanet.com/profile/ErikaMartinStampinMama
Supplies: * So Much set (Stampin UP) * Cardstock: Mellow Moss, Kraft, Very Vanilla * Ink: Basic Brown classic, Mellow Moss craft ink * Paper towel with a quilted pattern * Chocolate Chip poly-twill ribbon * Vintage copper brad * 1/16 inch hole punch * Pop-dots (not shown) * Embossing gun (not shown)
Step 1: Cut a piece of Mellow Moss cardstock at 4 x 11 inches and fold it in half to create your card base.
Step 2: Cut a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock at 4 x 5 inches.
Step 3: Mount the Very Vanilla cardstock on top of the Mellow Moss card base.
Step 4: Cut a piece of Kraft cardstock at 3 x 5 inches.
Step 5: Cut a piece of paper towel with a quilted pattern on it large enough to cover your Kraft cardstock, folded twice.
Step 6: Ink up the paper towel generously with Mellow Moss craft ink.
Step 7: Place the Kraft cardstock on top of the ink and rub your hand over it to transfer the ink from the paper towel to the cardstock.
Step 8: Allow the ink on the Kraft cardstock to dry. You can use your embossing gun to speed up the drying process.
Step 9: Cut a piece of Chocolate Chip poly-twill ribbon at 4 inches.
Step 10: Apply adhesive across one side of the ribbon and then attach it to the Kraft cardstock about 1 inches from the top of the cardstock.
Step 11: Apply some adhesive to the back sides of the ribbon ends and tuck them around the back of the cardstock and secure them.
Step 12: Mount the Kraft cardstock on top of the card front.
Step 13: On a scrap of Kraft cardstock, stamp the flower image from the So Much stamp set with Basic Brown ink.
Step 14: Trim around the flower, leaving a slight border around the edges.
Step 15: Mount the flower image on a scrap piece of Very Vanilla cardstock.
Step 16: Trim around the flower image, leaving a thin border of Very Vanilla cardstock around the edges.
Step 17: Use a 1/16 inch hole punch to punch a hole in the center of the flower image.
Step 18: Secure a vintage copper brad through the hole in the flower image.
Step 19: Cut a piece of Mellow Moss cardstock at 2 x 2 inches.
Step 20: Apply Basic Brown ink directly to the piece of Mellow Moss cardstock along the edges and in the middle. (this is the direct to paper technique)
Step 21: Apply pop-dots to the back of the Mellow Moss cardstock.
Step 22: Mount the Mellow Moss cardstock square on top of the Chocolate Chip ribbon on the card front.
Step 23: Apply pop-dots to the back of the cut-out flower image.
Step 24: Mount the flower image on top of the Mellow Moss square.
