This week’s Global Design Project is all about stripes, and the Bright & Beautiful Designer Paper has wonderful stripes! You can see all of the patterns in my Product List below.
I chose Lemon Lolly stripes for my background, 3 5/8″ X 4 7/8″, bordered by Zoo Crew Designer Paper, 3 3/4″ X 5″. After gluing the two together, I attached it with Dimensionals to a Lemon Lime Twist card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″.
Next, I stamped the darling, small, bird from the Bird’s Eye View Stamp Set in Memento Black Ink on Basic White Cardstock, and colored her with Stampin’ Blends. She needed at place to perch, so I used a Gorgeously Made die to cut a “tree” from Masterfully Made Designer Paper. After gluing the center of the tree, in the middle of the background, I gently lifted the ends of the branches, that weren’t glued, for dimension.
The sentiment, “thinking of you,” is from the Wonderful Thoughts Stamp Set. I stamped it in Memento Black Ink on Basic White Cardstock, and used its Wonderful Thoughts Die for cutting. The sentiment gives the tree a nice base, by attaching it with Dimensionals at the bottom of the “trunk.”
An afterthought was to decorate the envelope flap with the Stripes Embossing Folder. More stripes! It’s a narrow embossing folder, and comes with a Splatters Embossing Folder, which you can see in my Product List below.
Be inspired by all of the Global Design Projects, then hang your “stripes” in our gallery.
