Strips Technique and Hey Birthday Chick

Strip Technique Background 

Strips Technique and Hey Birthday Chick

This looks more complicated than it is. I started with 6 strips of 6 x 1, on a piece of 5-3/8 x 4-1/8 of Basic Black I adhere the 2 longer one diagonal, then adhere the top and bottom. In between each strip, I leave about 1/8″ but I don’t measure anything. All cards will be different a little. See the video to see the process, it is simple.

The Happy Birthday is a die in the Birthday Chick dies. On this card, I place a piece of Basic Black on the Adhesive Foam Sheet then die cut to so it is raised up,
