To start my technique I applied double stick carpet tape to my card stock pieces. I then removed the tape cover to reveal the sticky layer then started laying down my strips.
And I also tried something new! The rectangular die cut was actually an inch wider but I recut it trying to match up the embossed lines. Worked pretty good! I also splattered the rectangle with some Cool Pool Silk.
Here's the other cards I made using this technique.
The balloon card was one I used as a sample of a finished card. I used the Uplift die set to make the balloon. I don't remember where the sentiment came from other than it's an FSJ stamp.
I adhered the Whip Cream thread with dots of Journey Craft glue and added Sweet Candy Drops for embellishment.
This cards background was all I had. It, too, was a sample I showed at my class. I finished it yesterday using The Bright Side stamp set and some Blue Skies sequins. I used Color Burst pencils to color the yacht with a bit of Stardust Clear Gel pen in the water to give it a bit of glimmer.
This card I also only had the background as a sample. I spaced my strips then added black glitter and boy, does it pop!! Frankie is from the Let's Be Frank Die Set. I love this!! A couple wiggle eyes and some Citrus Cooler Silk splattered on the black card base... LOVE!
Have you tried this style of background? It is SO easy!
