Hi Friends!! kel here today 🙂 This was a SUPER FUN card to make!!! I saw a Jennifer McGuire post the other week about using up cardstock strips to make card backgrounds and thought this would be perfect to try! I simplified mine, of course, but it was super easy to put together and used so little of the Pop Tones Cardstock that I can make tons more!!
And this is where the $$ saver comes in! The reason we traced over the back with pen is to see how much of the actual card front was going to be covered. Because if you’re just covering it up with something else, no sense waste pretty colors behind it where no one can see!! Use the light to see how much you actually need to cover and save the rest!!
Mistakes are totally fixable. And make for some pretty cute cards in the end lol!! The great thing is that I have so much leftover strips that I can make a few more!! For the record, I cut 8 strips that were 4.25″ long and have FIVE of each color leftover + some scrap pieces big enough to use, and that includes the two black banners/strips. That means I used less than 3 strips of each color to make the card.
Thanks so much for stopping by!! Make sure to stay up to date with the latest news and sales on the CutCardstock Facebook Page!!
