All supplies by Stampin Up. Base card is Confetti Cream. Other cardstock: Real Red, Artichoke and Night of Navy; Red and Navy Markers; Pewter Hardware Hodgepodge and Night of Navy ribbon. Birthday Phrase from It's Your Birthday. What's the Strip Technique? I took a piece of scrap cardstock and cut it 1" by 5 and 1/4". Then I took some scrap pieces of the colored cardstock and cut them 1" wide and then randomly cut them into little pieces of varying widths as shown on card. I covered the long piece of cardstock with double sided tape and then just laid down each little piece of cardstock until I had the whole piece covered. Trimmed to even it up, adhered and then took the saying and mounted it. I really like this Strip Technique. I'm sure others have done it a thousand times but I thought it up today all by my lonesome and gave it my own name! I think this would also work really well with patterned papers. Edited to Add: I was just blog rolling and came across this posting from Card Positioning Systems. I know I saw this yesterday. Obviously that sketch burrowed into my tiny brain and out came my Strip Technique. Always like to give credit where credit is due!! Ok, now it is your turn. How about making a card using the Strip Technique and letting me know about it so I and my blog readers can go take a look see??? What will you win? NOTHING! ********* Speaking of WINNING a $50 gift certificate to Stamping Freak (Gina K Designs), I just got a notice from Gina that my Love You to Pieces set has shipped!
