Inspire Me Friday {More Fun with Stripes}

OK…I can’t quit playing with the stripes, girls!!!  There are lots of cute images in this new Holiday Wishes set, but I keep wanting to try new combinations with the two borders of stripes Dyane included.  Today’s card is really simple in design with one of the tag-like images for my focal point…

Behind that…the stripes!  In pretty, fresh colors for the holidays!  I stamped my stripe combo on two separate pieces of cardstock, trimmed away the excess, and then adhered them at angles to form a ‘v’.  I placed my doily/tag piece right where the two angled pieces came together…the bottom of the ‘v’.  My stripes matched up pretty well, but I was sure to choose a focal point large enough to disguise exactly where they met…

You can see, for the sake of interest, the ‘v’ shape is slightly offset.  And I like how it leads the eyes right down to the pretty sparkly doily and tag.

Hope you enjoyed today’s card!  There’s certainly more fun to be had with this set…so stay tuned!!!
