Textured Floral, Perennial Lavender, Birthday Card, Stampin' Up!

Hello and welcome to my blog. Today I challenged myself to make another card using strips. I finally succeeded in getting it right. Yay me! Please read on to see how I made today's card.

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Basic White card stock. It opens on the right and the fold is on the left. I cut a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Basic White card stock and textured it with the "Distressed Tile" embossing folder. I glued that piece to the front of the card.

Next I cut my Designer Series Paper (DPS) from the "Perennial Lavender" 12" x 12" package. I cut the Highland Heather strips first. They measure 1" x 4" and you need three of them.

Then I cut the background piece, which is on the other side of the strips piece. I cut this piece at 3-1/2" x 4-1/4".  I taped the strips to this piece. I taped the first and third piece down and then added the center strip. I glued this to the front of the card.

The words are from the "Textured Floral" set and were stamped using Gorgeous Grape ink. I cut them out using the die from the "Everyday Details" set. Dimensionals were added to the back and the piece was set in place on the front of the card. And the card was done.

I was very surprised at how quick it was to make this card. I guess once you get the hang of making the strips right it goes together well and quick too! I have lots of strips of DSP that I would love to use to make cards and use it up.

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