Hi, Jamie here today! If you’re like me, you have lots of scraps that you just can’t bear to throw away but don’t know what to do with them. I had these pretty strips laying around and decided to make a Hello Strips Card. My strips are all the same size, but they don’t have to be, just let your creativity flow!
Hello Strips Panel
To make my card I cut white cardstock to 4″ x 5 1/4″ and die-cut a circle in the upper center. Extreme Double-Sided Tape 1/8in was placed on the back of the strips EXCEPT for the strips that go over the die-cut circle. These strips only had the Extreme Double-Sided Tape 1/8in placed on the sides so that if the strips get pushed down, they won’t stick to the card base.
Pop Up the Panel
To lift the panel up on the card, I placed 3D Foam Strips on the back of the panel. Make sure the strips are close to the outer edge and closer to the circle to prevent sagging. For the middle part (the strips over the circle), I decided to place 3D Foam Squares Micro Black on the back of those strips. Remove the paper backing from all and pop the panel on a tan card.
Add The Flower
Stamp a flower using layering stamps, and die-cut it. Pop it up with 3D Foam Squares White Regular. For the stem, I used a 3D Foam Squares Micro Black at the bottom and placed it on the left side of the circle.
Die-cut the Hello from gold cardstock and its shadow from one of the colors of strips. Use the Dual Tip Glue Pen to adhere together and to the card as shown. For the final touch, add gold glitter enamel dots on the bottom right of the card.
