Addicted to Stamps and More! Challenge #418

Are you ready for a new challenge at Addicted to Stamps and More!? Our challenge for the next two weeks is

For my card, I was inspired by a card that Caly Person created for the Crushing Cardstock class at Online Card Classes. I can't show that particular card but it was similar to this one that she designed for Simon Says STAMP.

Here's my card

Caly used dies to cut her strips. I just used my trimmer to cut 1/4", 3/8" and 1/2" wide strips from a variety of colors of cardstock. I then weaved the pieces, in no particular order until I could cover an A2 panel. One tip that Caly gave was to use some washi tape to hold the vertical strips in place while you weaved the horizontal strips. I then used a glue pen to add adhesive to the back of the weaved panel and adhered it to a light gray A2 card panel. For the sentiment, I stamped out the "happy birthday" using Clearly Besotted's Many Mini Messages stamp set and Versafine Onyx Black ink on some light gray cardstock. I punched out the sentiment using Stampin' Up's oval punch. To help the sentiment pop, I used Stampin' Up's Decorative Label punch and some white cardstock and adhered it in place.

This was a fun card to put together. I'm not sure when the last time I weaved paper strips was - maybe it was back in kindergarten? That's a few years ago!

We'd love to see you birthday creations.
