Get Creative Card Challenge: Stripes

This is my second card for the Get Creative card challenge.  The first one was an animal-themed card with a motif of "spots."  The second one, which you see pictured below, is also an animal-themed card, but this time with a "stripes" motif.  I used a variety of border stickers to create the striped background.  In some cases, I was able to use up left over bits of border stickers which I had previously trimmed down for other projects.  So, making this card was a great way to "rescue" materials that otherwise might have been thrown away.

Supplies: patterned paper and alphabet stickers (Lily Bee Design), lion sticker and border stickers (Doodlebug Design), balloon sticker (Basic Grey), corner rounder (Creative Memories), twine (household natural twine).


I really put my stickers to use on this card, using the balloon and the lion to secure the twine in place.  It was so much easier than trying to apply a thin strip of glue to the twine.


I had so much fun mixing and matching the Lily Bee alphabet stickers.  I love that each sheet of Lily Bee stickers has complete alphabets in eight different colors.  Here I combined stickers from the Handmade, Double Dutch, Harvest Market, and Happily Lost product lines.



Additional supplies for inside of card: mini alphabet stickers from Bella Blvd.


The inside of my card also has stickers, which spell out the greeting "Happy Birthday."  I'll be sending this birthday card to a friend soon.  I hope she will like it!
