Multicolored Strip Background - Cardstock Blog Hop



Cardstock Strips Jazz Up A Background

This post is part of the Crafty Collaborations Cardstock Blog Hop. I'm sure you will find A LOT of inspiration in today's hop, so be sure to visit all of the blog pages listed below!

One of my favorite ways to showcase cardstock in my projects is to create a multicolored background using cardstock strips. It's especially awesome when I can find scrap strips of the colors I want to use already in my stash! 

For this card I used cardstock strips in a rainbow spectrum wide enough to cut out the small heart die In the limited edition HERE FOR YOU die set. I used cardstock strips that are 3/4" (2 cm) wide and that are the width of my card base. I then used the hearts that were cut out inside the card. 


The black & white sentiment looks striking next to the bright cardstock colors of this project. And I really like the HEART Punch Pack to mirror the heart die cut-out sections. And of course adding some bling with the rhinestones and with white ribbon really embellishes the cardstock background. (All supplies used are listed below my signature line).

As you can see my card project uses elements from the HERE TOGETHER Bundle. I took my outside and inside sentiments from the stamp set. and the small heart from the die set. Both of these items are limited edition items that are only available through May 2nd, 2022 (while supplies last).

Check out my how-to video for this project, including my tip for taping the cardstock strips together before attaching to the front of your card. Measurements are included also.
