Since the card was 5-1/2 inches wide, it was easy to just cut
all the strips 1/2 inches wide.
Instead of running adhesive down each strip, I ran double-
sided tape horizontally--three lines if I remember correctly.
Then if necessary, I adhered the ends down.
I started on the left side--since I am left-handed--that seems more natural--
and worked my way across.
I could see about halfway that the strips were getting a little "wonky" and I wasn't
going to end up right, so then I started working in from the right.
You do have to be careful and place then before you adhere them down.
Tip: Stamp the sentiment FIRST in case you mess up and have to start
over on a new piece of cardstock.
No sense going through all that trouble only to ruin it at the very end
and have to find a way to salvage it.
The sentiment is from a retired Stampin' Up set and I cannot
even tell you the name of it.
It has a coordinating sentiment for the inside.
The paper is from a retired Stampin' Up designer pack also.
This is a great way to use scraps, one of my favorite things to do!
I finished it off with a piece of black twine from a spool that
I got at an upholstery store eons ago.
Edited 2/29-- I noticed today that this card was perfect for the challenge over at
Less is More this week, so you can find it there along with many others that are using scraps.

Do you have a friend like that?
