There are currently two challenges involving using strips. There is one at 3D Foam and a Sanding Block, which is also part of a blog hop at Core'dinations and a second challenge at Cas'ual Fridays. I used Core'dinations Impressions cardstock from the Brown and Cream Collection and the Happy Colors Collection to cut strips of cardstock and adhered them diagonally on a white card base. Between each of the strips, I added strips of black cardstock. I used additional Core' strips to create the rectangle in the center and off set it on a piece of black cardstock. I adhered a small black bow and the sentiment. To pull the card together, I used a marker to create lines around the outside edges.
