Quick Card Strips

I've shared before my love of Quick Strips. I mostly use them on my scrapbook pages and got that idea from my fabulous fourth upline, Amy Johnson, in Stampin' Up!. Recently, she introduced a new technique to me as to using the same Scrapbooking Quick Strip on cards instead of pages. If you take a 12" Quick Strip, you can get two 4.1/4 x 5.1/2 cards with a teeny bit left over. Making these up ahead of time, I can have the option of scrapbooking or quick cards making in a moment's notice.
So I decided to create some Quick Strips specifically for cards alone. I could certianly use these on my scrapbook pages as embellishments but I've sized them specifically for cards. I've made up several and will wait to put them on my card until I need it. This way I may need a thank you and the next strip can be used on a birthday card. Get the idea?

In the case of these cute little strips, I have adorned a little "pop-up" card that will be redesigned for my Retirement Party on Sunday, July 27th from 2:00 to 4:00pm. These little pop-up cards are so fun and easy to make. RSVP for the party today and you'll receive all the supplies needed to make your own pop-up card. You can RSVP by emailing me or by leaving me a comment to this post. Check back here soon to see the other Retirement Party projects.
