Happy Mother’s Day with Floral Strips
In my continuing effort to use more of my patterned paper, I decided to revisit a technique I had done several years ago on this card after watching this video by Gina K. (Click on the video link just to hear the nostalgic StampTV theme song – lol!)
I don’t have a box of strips/scraps like she did, so I just cut strips (mine are 3/4″ wide) from a single sheet from the “Floral Essentials” paper pack by Gina K Designs (no longer available although any patterned paper would work for this technique). I paired this paper with some GKD Wild Lilac card stock and ink.
The dies I used were “Grosgrain Ribbon” by Poppy Stamps, “Mini Fanciful Flourish – Left” by Cheery Lynn Designs (no longer available?), a circle from the “Standard Circles Large S4-114” by Spellbinders, and an unbranded scalloped circle die.
The greeting stamp is from an old set that coodinates with some Spellbinders label dies. I no longer have the original packaging (and cannot find it online) so I’m not sure exactly what it is called (or the company that made it), but when I labeled it for storage (eons ago), I called it Spellbinders – Labels 2, 4. and 8. Hmmm… (If anyone knows what this stamp set is called, please let me know.)
One more sheet used….
Thanks for checking out my card project!

Your scalloped circle looks exactly like a Spellbinders set I have. I like the small strips. Beautiful card!
That background made with the strips of pattern paper is beautiful done that way. Adding the flourish is the perfect touch to complement the card.
The purple with the blue in the pp makes a delightful combo.
BEAUTIFUL!!! You did an amazing job with the floral strips background. There is nothing to not love about this card.
I thought at first that you had created some kind of lattice on the card front and then realized it was perfectly placed PP on top of the main panel. Its beautiful and I like that you layered CS in different sizes underneath and then added the florish.
Lisa, this is absolutely gorgeous! Love the woven paper strips. The colors are amazing, too.
Gorgeous colors and use of that lovely patterned paper. Love the scallop circle and the flourish.
