“Stripe it down” mini series with Franci

Hi there! 

It’s Franci here with you and today I have another mini series for you to join and be inspired by 🙂

I called it “Stripe it down!” because it features a fun design where the whole scene is concentrated in a stripe on the center of the card ..

Awww I love them so much! 

It all started with a card that Lesley made during her crafty live where she masked part of the card and just decorated a half. I were inspired to stretch that design a little and then I added lots of images and had fun creating something completely different in the end, but that has the same idea behind 🙂

So I created 2 standard size card bases out of white cardstock, cut out 2 stripes of white cardstock that are 2 by 4 1/4 inches and 2 stripes of kraft paper that are just a little bit wider.

Then I colored one white stripe with Picked Raspberry Distress ink + the Confetti Heart Stencil and the other one with Twisted Citron Distress ink oxide + the Rain on my Parade stencil.

Then I stamped, colored with my copics and die cut all the images from these sets: My little angel + coordinated diesQuack me up + coordinated dies and Quill you be mine + coordinated dies. 

I backed up the colored stripes with the kraft ones and I glued them down on the front of my card bases, in the center.

Then I decided to add another fun sentiment feature so I chose a sentiment from each set and I replaced a word with a giant one made out of  the Rascal Alphabetters set +coordinated dies.

I arranged all my little scenes and then glued everything down with a combo of liquid glue and foam adhesive.

Then I also added some clear sequins and lots of details with my white gel pen to all my images.

Finally I stamped the other parts of my sentiments on the sides and my cards are ready to make someone smile! 

I’m so happy about how they turned out, full of all these fun features and I hope you are now inspired to create with all your Heffy Doodle goodies too!

be sure to leave me some love in the comments down blow and I’ll see you soon with another cute project!
