This set includes a few fun decorative strips, strip embellishments and coordinating strip dies. We will be sharing with you a number of ways to incorporate these strips horizontally and vertically, through our projects for today. So let me get started....I kept things calm and serene for today, by using Lisa Johnson's newest set Peaceful Garden, polka dot pattern paper from the Pacific Vinyard pattern paper collection and a soothing color combo of Fine Linen, Rustic White and Ripe Avocado.First, the vertical version. You may notice that this card looks a little different from the group photo above. Well that's because I made a slight change after I took the photo. But I think that change made a world of difference. I started by die cutting a Half & Half strip from the pattern paper and adhered it to the card base with dimensional adhesive.I then cut a sentiment square to fit and attached it over the strip. Then embellished with a row of buttons and twine. And my afterthought was to add a Leafy Vine Border die cut above and below the sentiment strip.
Lastly, a horizontal version. Started this card by stamping a Rustic White cardstock block with the bamboo image, from Peaceful Garden, in Ripe Avocado.
To make this Half & Half strip appear to be wrapped around the card base, I attached a small piece behind the right side of the bamboo panel. Then attached the decorative edge of the Half & Half die cut onto the left side of the bamboo panel. Stamped and attached a sentiment strip and then wrapped the end with twine and a button.
I sure had a pleasant time creating today's project, I hope you enjoyed! That's it from me, but for even more Half & Half fun be sure to see what the rest of the design team has been up to...
