To make this card I cut my snippets of card to 1/8" width. I placed the strips across the corner of my card blank and made a pencil mark by the top strip. I placed the card blank into my MISTI and lined up the 'Happy' stamp so it was just above my pencil line and then stamped it in black ink. I removed the pencil line and attached the rainbow strips across the card using wet glue to give some 'wriggle room' so I could make sure there were no gaps between the strips. I then trimmed the ends of the strips level with my card blank. I stamped 'birthday' onto white card, die cut it with the coordinating die and attached it along the top strip.
To make this card I used:
5" x 5" white matt card blank
Clearly Besotted 'Modern Calligraphy' stamps and coordinating die
Versafine Onyx Black ink
Snippets of red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and violet textured card, white matt card
