Sentiments only

Hello Everyone, 

how are you doing? I hope all is well for you. 

Today I'll share two cards I created from leftover paper strips. 

My friend needed more than 100 invitations for a school event, so our kids and us spent a whole afternoon messing with a lot of colour. Unfortunately, we didn't take pictures, so I can't show you these cards, but the result was a whole stack of leftover white card strips, about an inch wide, which gave me the idea for this card.

I stencilled some embossing paste on a black card base and while it dried, I stamped all kinds of Birthday sentiments in black ink onto my paper strips. Then I cut down the strips, coloured them with alcohol markers and arranged them on the dried card base. 

I did the same for this card, only with a rainbow colour scheme, clear embossing paste and a different stencil.

I am amazed, at how many Birthday sentiments stamps I have - considering that I never seem to find the perfect one for the card I am making at the time...

Lots of Love
