Do you have a lot of strips of cardstock that you cannot bear to throw away? I do, especially in Basic Black and Whisper White. My scraps were getting out of control so I decided it was time to make some striped backgrounds.
The strips of black and white cardstock are 3/4" x 4" and I glued them on to a piece of cardstock 4" x 5-1/4". I love black and white stripes. I knew my card needed a pop of color so I pulled out some Pineapple Punch cardstock (retiring In Color) and stamped the large daisy from the Daisy Delight stamp set (retiring set) in Pineapple Punch ink. I like a full daisy so I layered together 2 punches for each flower. The leaves were punched using the Leaf punch (retiring punch)in Granny Apple Green.
The sentiment is also from the Daisy Delight stamp set and it is stamped on a label cut using a Stitched Rectangle die. I added a few black sequins from the Peaceful Poppies Sequins (retiring from the 2020 January-June catalog). The Peaceful Poppies sequins have Black, clear, gold, Poppy Parade and a light Poppy Parade sequins in round and flower shape. They are so cute!
