Sprinkles and tWiNkLes* to Andrea for the coaching and Page for the hosting!


Fold an 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" sheet of [white] paper in half to form your card base.  Adhere a 5-1/4" x 4" [black] panel.  Adhere a 5" x 3-3/4" [white] panel.  Now....the strippers!

For this step you will need 4 coordinating paper designs.  For this card, I used 3 designs and 1 solid textured paper.  The measurements are:
[black] 4-3/4" x 1-1/4"  
 [red] 4-3/4" x 1"   
[green] 4-3/4" x 3/4"   
[white] 4-3/4" x 1/2"

Tape your strippers together.  I ordered them widest to thinnest, but use any combination that makes you happy.  Trim the side edges as needed.

Add ribbon or other embellishments as desired.  I always forget the ribbon.

Adhere the strippers to the [white] card panel. Make sure your card opens on the right side.


Get the assembly line moving.

Add the final elements.  Sentiments, monograms, flowers....what's in that sTaSh?!?  I used a circle scallop punch with the [black] cardstock, a 1-1/2" circle punch with the [red patterns] and a 1-1/4" circle punch with the [white] cardstock.  The sentiment is stamped in black and clear embossed for a finished look. A monogram would be nice, too. Finally, I lightly sanded the edges of the paper.

  2. Great card! I love the layout. Nice coordination of colors/papers. Very cute. I hardly ever make more than one of a card, but I should do assembly line!
