Save those 1″ Strips!

Hi, Stampers! I created some fun cards using1″ strips from the Regency Park Designer Series Papers. I love the different color combinations in these papers. The patterns are so fun and spring-like, and I do hate wasting any beautiful paper! So I made four card using four combos:

This card layout is from Mary Fish from Stampin’ Pretty. I started with a card base of 8 1/2″ by 11″, folded at 4 1/4″. I then added a different colored cardstock panel of 4″ by 5 1/4″ on top of that. From there, I took a panel of Basic White cardstock on which I would adhere the strips, cut at 3 3/4″ by 5″, which would be trimmed down later.

Then I cut THREE strips of THREE different coordinating designer papers at 1″ wide. From my samples, you can see how they fit onto the card. Some can be cut at 1 by 5″ and a few more like 1 by 3″ — it’s NOT an exact science haha!

I then started adhering the strips to the white panel which has not been attached to the card yet! I placed them, just ‘eyeing up’ the gap between each strip. I started with these four, (see dotted line below), and then pieced the others in. Once you get the hang of it, it goes fast for multiple cards.

The strips will hang over the edges of your white panel. When all the strips are applied, turn over, and trim the strips to the edges of the white panel, and adhere to the card front!

I used the Lovely Labels Pick-a-Punch to punch out the sentiments after stamping with the large THANKS sentiment from the Season of Chic stamp set. So nice to be able to choose two different designs on the punch! And so quick and easy!

I tied big bows of white baker’s twine behind each sentiment and adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added some various sequins I had in my embellishment stash, and done!

The Regency Park designer series papers have such beautiful floral patterns; they’re so much fun to mix and match!
