So I gathered up all the scraps and strips of paper and started sorting and arranging them. I had to cut some into smaller strips and really work at making them in some sort of coordinating order.
Even after all that I rearranged the strips for the final cards.
By adhering them on an angle it draws your eye across the card and gives the plain background some interest. Love this one.
Here's another example. I'm crazy about the bicycle strip. I wish there were more of this image. Did you notice that in each card I separated the strips with other papers in the collection that have a lot of black and white. This keeps the design from being too busy.
The design of this last card is horizontal so the strips look ok going straight across. The sentiment reflects the wishes of my heart regarding lots of friends and family. So that's it for me today. Hope you're enjoying my cards!
