I made this card for the monthly challenge at Gina K Designs. The challenge calls for using multiple strip sentiments on our cards.
I really like finding new ways to expand the use of stamps, stencils, etc. For this card, I used Gina K Designs' SNOWFLAKE MANDALA STENCIL to make my circle embellishments. First, I taped off some of the small areas on the stencil. I brushed those areas with ink onto white cardstock, then punched 1.25" and 1.5" circles.
I randomly adhered some circles with double-stick tape and others with foam tape. I added some matching strips of cardstock, then stamped and adhered the sentiment strips. I rounded the top right corner of the card. The strips are about 1/4" and 1/8" wide.
Designer Tip: One way to add interest to a card, is to add small strips of cardstock like I have on this card. Sometimes it seems your card just needs something else. That's how I felt with this card. I added the strips and rounded the corner. This is a great way to use up scraps!
