Hello and welcome! I had made this card for our Inspiration Station challenge that us sisters have. But I hadn’t followed the theme right, so I thought I would make something else for the challenge, and post this card separately.
I started this card with making the striped background. With my sister’s help, I had collected these stripes from some time now. In fact there are even more left in the stash, to make more cards. Luckily, I was able to quickly find stripes that looked good together. I adhered these on a piece of copy paper, then trimmed the overhanding stripes.
And this became a fine time to get lost on how to continue. The background was so pretty, I didn’t want to add much on top which would cover it up. And some of the die cuts I originally had in mind, I dropped since they weren’t looking good on this. Thankfully, I had these pair of ‘Crocus Flowers’ dies from Simon Says Stamp. I die cut a few pieces from white cardstock and adhered them together, I then adhered vellum below it, and cut it out as cleanly as I could. I think I did a pretty good job! 🙂
I figured I would adhere them on an incline, just so they would match the stripes. Finally, I stamped the sentiment, from Paper Smooches Simply Said stamp set, fussy cut it, and adhered it using foam tape on top of the card. I adhered a few white rhinstones for embellishing.
And that’s my card. I’m joining the following challenges with this card –
Thank you so much for stopping by! 🙂
