Summer is around the corner, and I wanted to make a happy citrus-colored card that would make someone smile.

I first laid down my custom cut sentiment that was cut with my silhouette cameo.

I used wide post-it tape to mask off striping areas on top of the sentiment. I had 3 sets of two strips for each color because I didn’t want the colors to mix too much.

Then I eyeballed the stripes so they were around the same size and blended some inks for stripes.

After the stripes were done, I peeled off the masked sentiment and then added color- coordinated sequins all around.
