Congrats Strip Banner

One more for tonight and off to bed I go!  LOL.  This is a cute little card (4" x 4") I made for Moxie Fab's Tuesday Trigger.  Here's the trigger:

And here's my card:

I was inspired by the flag banner, the colors on the banner, and the doily (which is resembled on the bottom border of the card).  For the banner I just cut out the strips of paper (My Mind's Eye Ooh La La paper pack), placed on the card as shown, and then traced the 'string' with a pink pen. 

I wanted some color to show through the openings on the border so I added printed paper inside and notched it up by punching the same border as on the outside:

 This is a close-up of what the card looks like when closed:

I love how cheerful this little card is!   It's also the perfect companion to a gift! 

Thanks for stopping by!  

Have a bright day!


  1. Very cute! Great idea letting the patterned paper show through the front.

  2. Fun colors - really like the strip of paper on the inside too!

  3. This is really CUTE! I love how the polkadots peek through the boarder punch!

  4. Just noticed your entry, Aixa! This is so fabulous! I love your creative use of pretty pattern paper!

  5. Hey Aixa! Thanks for linking this up to this week's Tuesday Trigger in the Moxie Fab World! I'm so glad you joined in on all the fun! :)
