Hey Gorgeous! Striped Background.

by Laura

Hi there! Laura here and today I have fun stripe-y project to share with you featuring some of the new January release products.Altenew-Caps Bold Alphabet dies & Spring Shower Cover dieTo create the striped background I trimmed strips of solid cardsock to 1/2″ thickness and adhered them to a card base. Then I die cut the Spring Shower Cover Die with a piece of vellum and adhered it over top of the stripes with spray adhesive.

For the sentiment I used the Caps Bold Alphabet dies to spell out “HEY”. Then I embossed a coordinating sentiment from the Layered Letters AFG Stamp Set in white and popped it up over the “HEY”.

Love your card! The striped background is too cool. Would have never thought of putting the delicate vellum cover over the bold stripes but it makes a great card. I love the commentary on your videos.

Hi Laura,

Fabulous project, firstly for using up scrap card stock for the background, then using a spray adhesive for the vellum (which I need to get in my stash) and then using large letter dies (which I love to use too) for the sentiment. Great card, love it! :o)
