Splitcoast Stampers that featured strips of decorative papers so I went looking in my scrap bucket to see if I could find several that coordinated. Fortunately, I did and I also found a little frame left over from these cards that was the right colour to be my accent. I started by punching HAPPY on one strip and then arranging the rest of them til I was happy with the look of them. The strips overlapped just a bit so I glued them to each other to create a full background for my card. Next, I used my homemade stamp positioner to stamp "birthday" on the one below the punched one in brown and embossed it with clear embossing powder. I glued my background to the front of a brown card. I added a strip stamped with a leafy background and glued my little green frame over it. I found a leaf just the right colour in my bucket of leaf punchies. It still needed a bit of something so I added dots to the bottom of each strip of decorative paper with a fine tip Sharpie!! That was better!! My card is ready to go for the weekend!!
