Over at Nutty for Stampin' there is a great tutorial on her blog about how to partially emboss with the Framed Tulips folder. It's so cool! I learned from her tutorial exactly how she was able to get two parallel strips of the embossing folder on a card front. Once I tried out her tutorial I was hooked.
If you are thinking this card looks a lot like my card which I posted just the other day it's because this card was the inspiration for that. You see my mom needed a simple card for a group of girls to make. We liked this card style and the colors for them to make, but we both felt that while this card appears simple it is actually more complex than the time they would have. So we simplified this card into what my 3/24 card post.
