Last year I attended a card class where we used strips of paper to form the background for a card. I lived this technique as it is so great for using scraps. This card is simple you just cut your scraps into strips. I cut a 5.25 by 4 inch piece of cardstock and ran it through my xyron. I then took strips of my Christmas paper and started attaching in a pattern. I cut the base for the sentiment and stuck it on the front of the card.
