Hello Lovelies! You know I love easy cards and this one combines two of my favorite things, stripes and flowers!
I have oodles of solid cardstock in my craft room, but it's so much fun to use inks to custom color small pieces of cardstock for projects as you need them.
Please note that if you are using your ink pads to create colored cardstock, I recommend having reinkers available to refresh your pads as you will use up the ink in the pad faster. Let's get things started with looking at your key supplies!

LIVE MORE, WORRY LESS - Inking and Die-cutting
Card Base: 4 1/4" x 5 1/2"
Simon Says Stamp Pawsitively Saturated Ink - Peachy, Sherbet, Guava, Spring and Tropic
Cut strips of 80lb white cardstock a little larger than the Strips Die.
Gently drag your ink pad across the surface of the cardstock until the original white color is covered.
Tip: It may look uneven at first, but the ink will generally settle evenly into the paper when dry.
Repeat the above steps for each color in today's palette.
Die-cut each inked cardstock using the Strips Die.
Very Very Low Tack Tape is holding the die in place, as my dies always get the wiggles on the way through the die-cutting machine.
You will more Strips than needed for one card. This is never a problem for me as I don't need much of an excuse to stripe something!.
You can make an A2 card base or try the pre-made ones from Simon Says Stamp that I move. I'm always in a rush and they are a absolute time-saver!
Cover the card front with lines of glue as shown.
Adhere the Strips to the card front as shown; they will hang over the edge.
Trim the excess.
Die-cut the Fab Floral Plate Die out of white cardstock. Note: I also ended up with a little excess at the bottom once I adhered the Fab Floral Plate diecut, so I trimmed that too.
Die-cut the Fab Flower Die six times out of white cardstock. Adhere one layer of three of the Fab Flower outlines diagonally a shown, pulling the petals upward. Repeat by adhering a second layer on top of the first and off-setting the petals so they overlap with the layer below.
Trim the selected sentiments as shown.
Add Foam Adhesive Squares to the back to pop up the sentiments
Add sequins to the flower centers and near the sentiment for a finishing touch. Adhere using Crafty Tacky Glue, which works really well on non-paper items.
Yaaasss for stripes!!!
The little Fab Flowers are definitely cute!
I'm a worrywart, so I need to make an extra card for myself!
I hope you will try this card in some of your favorite colors!
No go make your own rainbow of solid colored cardstock.
