PTI 7th Anniverary ~ Day 7 (Stripes)

In honor of Papertrey Ink's 7th Anniversary, today's challenge on Nichole's blog is to incorporate stripes in our projects. Think she wants us to realize how much easier it would be with the new Cover Plates introduced today. They look really cool and easy to use for vertical, horizontal or diagonal stripes. For my three cards below, colored stripes were adhered to a piece of white cardstock almost the width of my cards before cutting down the heighth.

"Happy Birthday" from Botanical Silhouettes is stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black ink twice, once on the white card base and again on the stripes.

For this one, I used a Rustic Cream card base, scoring two lines on the top and one on the bottom. HAPPY is from Tipped Tops Dies and cut from SU Basic Gray card stock. Since I never confessed to be perfect, I will admit the word "birthday" from Pretty Peonies stamped on SU Really Rust and punched using SU's Word Window punch covers up an error. Lesson Learned: It's not easy stamping a small sentiment over paper seams. Both sentiments were popped up using foam mounting tape.

The two narrow strips were adhered to a Harvest Gold card base. Birthday Wishes stamped with SU Really Rust ink and a Tipped Tops Dies star cut from Hawaiian Shores finish this series.
