Friday Challenge 91 with Quick Quotes~

Hi, Connie here with this months challenge.  You know I love photo strips, on scrapbook pages, so I got to thinking~what about photo strips on cards.  They are easy to make and look great on a card.
So let's do this~

Instructions for photo strips:
* First find a small stamp and get your Quick Quotes PowderPuff Chalk inks out, you will need them.

*Using white cardstock make swatches of ink down one side.
*Stamp your small image in the center of the color swatch.
*Punch the swatch out with a square punch.  can be 1" or 1 1/2" doesn't matter.
*Cut strips of paper from the Secret Garden collection (CN103) and then down the middle. See picture.
*Mount square swatches on white cardtsock and trim out into a strip.
*Add Secret Garden strip to each side of image strip.  Cut the strip at the length you need for the cards.
*Stamped sentiment using Quick Quotes PowderPuff Chalk ink.
*Adhere to card fronts.
*Decorate with twine and pearls.

The Secret Garden paper is so bright and vibrant, I thought I would try to scan them into my computer and print them out as note cards.

*You will need to flip the image so it comes out the right way.  I added a little ink splats and a hand made stamp at the bottom of the cards.  The white cardstock size is 6" X 12".   The Canon iP8720 printer was used for this.  The cards printed beautifully.  I will be doing this again!!!!

The scanned and printed out cards are slightly lighter in color but they look great. and will be gladly received by someone.
