Tula XII Simple Card Layout #2: Using Stripes

This simple layout is made with just four things besides the card base;

  1. patterned paper
  2. die cut
  3. sentiment strip
  4. design element

This card layout is all about stripes. To complete this project you all that it requires is the card base, precut paper, die cut, sentiment, and element all prepared for you in when the kit arrives (the only thing you will have to do is add the sentiment sticker to a piece of card stock, but even that has been pre-cut for you, so all you have to do is stick on the sticker). In this lesson I show how to cut the paper, both with a paper cutter or by tearing to create stripes. A fun element was to flip the paper so that the coordinating side was showing. I did use Stampin up! dimensions adhesive, and some glue dots to attach, but you can keep it simple and just use your prefered method of adhesive. In this video again I show both the horizontal and the vertical way to put together the cards, both in the Thanksgiving and Holiday layouts.

As you can see from the two sketches above you can really make these out in either a horizontal or a vertical layout. Both layouts lend themselves to simplicity and quickness. In the horizontal version the paper is cut into strips, while in the vertical version the paper is torn. Both create a nice dynamic in that flipping every other design paper over you will get a nice coordinating pattern, that will add some elements of design and fun to each card. Also with each card I chose to add a design element of either a bow or a button. Both of these card kits come with everything I shared in the photos (except the adhesive).
