Celebrate with Stripes


There are so many awesome cards at the Runway Inspired Challenge this week. Go check them out if you have a chance.  I've had an idea floating around in my head for it and thankfully I squeezed in some crafty time this morning.  Obviously I was inspired by the black and white stripes but what also caught my eye was the model on the very edge of the picture.  I liked the idea of bookending something with stripes and thought of this Unity bracket stamp that I have.  The stamp actually has polka dots inside the brackets which I didn't want so I stamped them on the back side of my striped paper and cut them out.  Now, this might be a stretch, but I'm also going to join in with Unity's Friends with Flair blog hop with this card - I did use a Unity stamp even if I only used it's shape.  :)  This card also fits in with Simon Says Stamp's Spots &/Or Stripes challenge.  Off to work now.  Have a wonderful day!
Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (Black, White) Pacon
Patterned Paper:  Doodlebug Designs
Stamp:  (Bracket) Unity
Stickers:  Scenic Route

Thanks for visiting my Flourishes post--you asked about the Unity clock face I used. It comes from the Generations stamp kit:

I love the bold graphic look of this card! And simply brilliant to use the backside of the stamps (ok, that just sounds WRONG, lol). Love it!

Emily Leiphart said...

Wow, I thought those brackets were chipboard or something! That is some fine fussy cutting. This card is just fabulous, Jen!
