My friends Kylie and Bruno shared this simple cardmaking technique years ago. Yes, I said years ago. For some reason my brain blocked it out as something that would be difficult to learn.
So last week I sat down and watched Bruno make one of these cards and I was embarrassed at what a simple cardmaking technique this was that I hadn’t bothered to try.
SIMPLE CARDMAKING TECHNIQUE
The first card I am sharing today is the card you’ll get in the card class for March.
Every Tuesday I will be making a card that will be in your card kit for the month. I’ll explain more in the YouTube live video.
Here are my tips for the scrappy strip technique:
+ Start with a smaller piece of cardstock as your base than your strips.
+ Cut your strips at varying widths and angles, make sure they are longer than the cardstock piece you’re glueing them on. The strips should hang off the edges.
+ Die cut or trim the excess parts of the strips of cardstock or pattern paper for a beautiful finished piece.
Here are a few other examples of the scrappy strip simple cardmaking technique. The first one I am sharing with the permission from my friend Kylie. This card is on her blog and you can visit her HERE.
These are a few other cards I made on our live event today.
