Floating Stripes Card - Class Project


 Floating Stripes 

Here is another fun card and great technique to use up some of your scraps. I had leftover pieces from  a card I designed for my card making class (this card will come up at a later time) and happen to get a design tutorial from Splittcoaststampers using stripes of papers and a sheet of acetate.

I adhered the strips to my acetate sheet and raised it with foam so it appears to be floating on the card. The nice thing is that the foam is hidden beneath the strips ;-)

Isn't this a fun project? If you like to see a video for this technique....let me know


P.S.:

Do you like the wood grain paper in the background of the card check this out:

Get Well Soon Card - Class Project


 Get Well Soon Card - using up some scraps


I used some paper scraps I had laying around from the "Sweet Girl" paper and a turquoise glitter paper that has been retires a while ago. Plus a few pieces of cardstock was all that was needed to make this card. See the little blue sprinkles on the card?

I used the Ocean Gloss Spray (Z3822) by shaking the bottle well, then unscrew the top and just flick the top part over the card base before adding the papers.

The pattern for this card is from the CTMH How-To-Book Volume 5 (9046) which contains beside scrapbooking layouts a ton of card making patterns.
