Confessions of a Zip Stripper

Ok... I confess... patterned paper is nice... but oooh those zip strips! I love those unique little strips found at the top of CTMH patterned paper. I made a video showing just one of the many things you can do with zip strips... a boho-chic card.
Boho-chic is so fun to create!
You can stick to just a few colors, such as this masculine birthday card.
Here is a very simple version using this technique.
Here is another example... once you have created the background, have fun with the embellishments!
Some of the supplies I used today are listed here... thank you for your support if you choose to purchase from my links...
I started by cutting out two pieces of White Daisy Cardstock
- one for the base 11" x 4.25"
- another to adhere the zip strips to 4" x 5.25"... once the zip strips are adhered this piece will be cut to 3.75" x 5"
I also cut a piece of black cardstock to 4" x 5.25". Also, for this particular card I used a die to create some "black lace" using the same black cardstock.
You will also need some embossing powder. For the card in this video I used Ranger Gold Tinsel Embossing Powder.
Other goodies I used in the video are:
- A Heat Tool (mine is the old style, but this link goes to the newest version).
- Some adhesive... such as Tombow Permanent Adhesive or a Broad Tip Glue Pen.
- Cutting tools... such as a Photo Trimmer, or Non-stick Micro-tip Scissors, or a SureCut Deluxe Craft Paper Trimmer.
- You may have also noticed I created this card on top of my All-Purpose Mat.
Again, thank you for joining me today. I hope you enjoyed the video. Please leave any comments or suggestions in the comments below and please do subscribe to my YouTube channel so you don't miss out on any of the upcoming fun!
Happy Paper Crafting,
