On this stripey card, I used the Luscious Script Wishes die along with the Life is Sweet Clear Stamp set. To make the stripes, I cut a lot of 1/4" strips of three different colors of cardstock -- a light turquoise, a teal, and a light yellow-green. I glued the strips to a piece of white cardstock approximately 4" x 5". Next, I trimmed that piece of cardstock to approximately 4.75" x 3.25" to cut off all the uneven ends. I centered this on a white A2 sized card. I used the middle-size frame from the Scallop Stitch Frame die set and cut out a scalloped frame and glued it down on the stripes.
I die cut the word wishes from heavyweight white cardstock and then used a piece of turquoise vellum to cut the the shadow die. I glued these two together and then attached them to the striped background, carefully hiding foam adhesive behind the wider strokes of the letters.
Next, I stamped the word Sweet from the Life is Sweet stamp set and cut it out and mounted it with foam adhesive above the word. Finally, I added color-matched sequins to the stripes on the cards to give it shine. Hope you enjoyed my explanation and that you enter our contest before the month's end.
