Stripped Thank You!

Hi Blog Friends!

Back today with a card for you for the
Paper Trey Ink 11th Anniversary Celebrations!
Found here:
I thought I'd try a technique I was wanting to try with the stripes.
I used left over scraps to make this card.
I thought the colors were festive for this celebration!

Stripped Thank You
 I started with the intention of having my card vertical, 
but I soon discovered it can be used horizontally also!

I cut many strips of paper, not really worrying they were all the same width. 
Thinking it might make for an interesting card!

I glued them to a base piece of card stock & when finished, cut off the excess.

I used a T-Ruler & my Zig Water Mark Pen to create the stripes the embossing powder was added to.
I used SU-Silver (on purpose- as it is the color of the 11th Anniversary Traditional Gift- Steel),
 & Recollections- Opaque Sparkle Embossing Powders.

Here is a close up.

I created a banner/flag & stamped it with Versa Mark, 
the sentiment from PTI-Thank You Kindly.
(I LOVE this set! It has SO MANY FONTS & ways of stamping "Thank You!")

I then added my embellishments- 28 Lilac Lane Sequins & Nuvo Crystal Drops.
A little story about the Nuvo Crystal Drops.....
With one color,  the Nuvo Drops just wouldn't come out of the bottle.
I held it over a small piece of paper I'd been writing my supplies on,
 & kept trying to squeeze the bottle.
With one squeeze, it just BLOBBED OUT with a huge squirt noise,
 & I was splattered with Nuvo Drops & a BIG BLOB on my desk!
 It over shot the paper!
I worked quickly to get it back in the bottle with a palette knife & my fingers. 
Wiped everything I could off quickly to keep it from setting,
 & had to take my robe off & throw it in the wash.
(Yep, I'm one of those crafter's who craft in their PJ's & robe! LOL)

Whichever way you like it, it's striped! ;)


AND I'd like to say a BIG THANK YOU to PTI for these FUN FESTIVITIES!
