Meandering Meadows, Days to Remember, Birthday Cards, Stampin' Up!

Hello and welcome to my blog. Today I have a super quick card(s) to share with you. Yesterday I made a card using the "Meandering Meadows" Designer Series Paper (DSP) 6" x 6" stack. After cutting the piece I needed for my card there was a pretty strip leftover and I didn't want to toss it in recycling, so I put it back in the package. I had noticed that there was another one in the package too, it was a hair wider but still, it's leftover and in the package. So I decided to make cards with the two strips. Please read on to see how these cards were made.

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Basic White card stock. I cut the Crushed Curry strips at 5-1/2" x 2-1/4". I cut two of them. That was my mistake, I should have measured the wider strip and cut the card stock to fit it but I ended up trimming the DSP and all was well. 

The strips were taped to the card stock pieces and then taped to the front of the card about 1/4" from the fold. 

Using the "Double Oval" punch, I punched out two scalloped ovals and set them aside. 

The words are from the "Days to Remember" set and were stamped using black Memento ink. I punched them out using the same punch. I taped the ovals together. Dimensionals were added to the back and then set in place on the front of the card.  And the card was done.

Super simple and you get to use your scrap pieces. Yay!

Thank you SO very much for taking your time to stop in and see today's birthday card,

The left over strip made a wonderful "clean and simple" card. I do that with a lot of strips from the 6 x 6 papers.
