I started my project by cutting lots of 1" x 4" strips of Vintage Cream cardstock. Using Papertrey ink colors in Summer Sunrise, Ripe Avocado, Aqua Mist and Spring Moss, I stamped a different pattern on each of my cardstock strips. I also added in some fun polka dots from Polka Dots Basics II in Summer Sunrise ink.
By using a single stamp design and single ink color, I was able to create what looks like individual patterned paper that was cut up for each of my cardstock strips. I love the look of this because it looks like I chose papers that came from a coordinated paper pack. But for a fraction of the price. I could have also stamped full sheets of my patterns to create a one sheet wonder....this would be great if you needed lots more of the patterned paper.
Next, I assembled my cardstock strips onto 4.25" x 5.5" Kraft card fronts. I did not worry about spacing the strips perfectly, I went for a quirky look by just attaching them randomly. Edges of cards were inked with Vintage Cream ink.
