W hen I visited Sharon Burkert's blog, I discovered her delightful cards made with Flower & Field paper, which is now FREE with a $50 order. I liked Sharon's cards so much, I CASEd them and made a set for myself. Mine vary a bit from hers, but credit for the idea goes to her.
The same basic directions work for each of these cards.
Begin with a card base cut at 11" x 4 1/4" and scored at 5 1/2".
For the central piece cut cardstock at 3 1/4" x 4".
Cut patterned paper 3" x 3 7/8".
Then cut this piece into 1" strips.
Glue the 1" strips to the 3 1/4" x 4" cardstock and add to the card front.
Add a sentiment and embellishments as desired.
