This stripe swap card was created in honour of a swap that focused on the stripes theme. I had on hand this bright green card-stock that really crashes with the colour of the stripe designer paper I wanted to use.
So I changed the border on the front of the green card by using the direct-to-paper technique. This is a simple technique using an inkpad and applying the color directly to the card. For this stripe swap card, I used a red dauber by Tsukineko to paint on the borders of the green card.
The above is the stripes card I created for a fun swap online. I posted a video here of the steps I took to create this card but somehow the video is no longer working and I lost the file so this is all you can view of the handmade strip swap card :-(
I will need to reproduce it or better still make more colour stripes cards to post here for our inspiration. Yes! I certainly will do that as even while I'm this sentence, my head is filled with technique and design ideas for more stripes.
That's it! A quick and simple stripe swap card ready for posting to my swap partner.
