Birthday Strips

I have used strips of cardstock in the past and while sorting snippets found my stash of card offcuts and thought it was time to use up some more...


So starting with the strips on the left and sticking them down on the right results in one very easy male birthday card...

I added a touch of clear Kindyglitz to the bottom of each strip just for a bit of "glamour" LOL - and a sentiment sticker from my stash... Seriously it looks so much better IRL...

I have another card on the go using strips also but it isn't quite finished yet - thinking of adding a flower or two...

I am linking up to the following challenges with this creation...

Pixies Crafty Snippets Playground week 82 - its fun to run around and around and around... and then fall down LOL
