Summer Stripes | By Seeka

Hello! Seeka here, and today I’ve got some fun striped cards for you. It was so fun and satisfying to make these, I hope you’ll give it a try!

I started by using purple tape to temporarily secure the Bold Stripes stencil to a piece of Strathmore Bristol Smooth cardstock. Then I laid two strips of scrap paper on either side of the center stripe so that I could eaisly blend color over that single stripe without accidentally getting ink onto the neighboring stripe.

Using foam blending tools, I blended stripes of Picked Raspberry, Abandoned Coral, Worn Lipstick, and Carved Pumpkin Distress Oxide inks onto the panel. For my blue cards, I used Broken China, Peacock Feathers, Cracked Pistachio, and Twisted Citron.

Next I used shadow die of the Hello Topper die set to cut along the edge of a scrap piece of bristol smooth cardstock. I left a margin at the bottom that was the same height as the spaces between the stripes on my panel.

Next I used the sentiment die from the set to cut four “hellos” and then stacked and adhered them together before adhering them to the shadow layer. Using foam tape, I adhered the sentiment piece to the background.

For the blue cards, I used the Big Hugs Sugar Script die set, cutting the shadow layer from vellum and using the same stacked sentiment technique.

Thank you so much for visiting!
