6 Scrappy Strip Card Designs – Stampin’ Up! Gilded Autumn

This weekend I have been doing a bit of card making with scraps! Well after all of the autumn themed cards I have been sharing with you, it’s easy to see why I have accumulated a few piles of scrap pieces of paper. So today I have 6 different scrappy strip card designs to share that feature the Stampin’ Up! Gilded Autumn Specialty Designer Series Paper (DSP) and the Beautiful Autumn Bundle.

Background Strip Design

As you may know, autumn is one of my favorite seasons! So I had a blast sitting down and using up these scrap pieces of the Gilded Autumn DSP. This DSP has some beautiful earth tones on one side and gold or copper foil designs on the other. You can easily mix and match the designs to create a fun look! These first two cards feature a great way to use up 1/2 inch wide pieces of cardstock or DSP to create a fun background for the card.

Simply cut seven 1/2 x 4 inch strips of cardstock or patterned paper. Space them evenly across the card front before adhering them. The first card features the use of cardstock for the strip design. The second card features DSP. Both cards have the same background design, I simply decorated them differently.

Any Size Scrappy Strips

You can use absolutely any size scraps in your card making! The first card features a 2 x 4 inch and 2 x 3 inch scrappy strips of DSP. I snipped the end of the 2 x 3 inch piece into a little banner and layered the pieces on the card. One of my favorite ways to use up scraps is simply to layer them together and then add a focal point.

The second card is a great way to use up any size scraps! Simply cut a 3 x 4 inch piece of cardstock and adhere the scrappy strip pieces side by side across the cardstock. You don’t have to worry about cutting them to the correct size either. Just choose a few pieces of scraps that hang over the edge of the cardstock (in this case they would be longer than 3 inches). Once you have all of the scraps adhered to the cardstock piece, trim off the excess with your scissors. Then embellish the card as desired.

Quick Scrappy Strip Designs

The last two card ideas I have to share with you feature some quick scrappy strip designs. The first card is a simple angle card design. Find a variety of 1/2 inch wide strips of DSP and adhere them, on an angle, across a piece of Early Espresso cardstock. You can cover the entire piece of cardstock or just half of the cardstock. Create a fun focal point and embellish as desired.

The second card idea is a great way to use a variety of different sized strips of DSP. This card features 1/2, 3/4 and 1 inch strips of DSP. This time I did a little bit of paper tearing on the strips for a fun look! Adhere the strips side by side across a 5-1/4 x 4 inch piece of Crumb Cake cardstock. Add a greeting stamped on a 3/4 x 4 inch piece of Crumb Cake cardstock (tear the edges to match the strips).
