For someone who has been spending a lot of time in the stamp room, I seem to be slow getting my cards completed. Here is the intermediate card for Day 2. It is all about adding stripes to the card. This is intermediate as one needs to know something about color theory and combining colors that look pleasing to the eye.
This card was completed on Day 4 of the class, so some of the lessons are probably getting combined. I chose paper from my SU stash. I am not sure of the color names, as they were cut and I just began pulling them out and making strips. I think the colors work well together. The hello die is from Gina K Designs. I think it works for this card.

THe ef works so well with these bright colors.
Thank you! I like it with the embossing.
Great card i love the colors
Colors work really well together. I like the embossing on the strips and the slight angle.
Thanks Gayle! Justine was using the angle, so I used the angle.
Love the bright colors and slight angle of the stripes. You’re right, that die works very well for this card.
Fun card! The colors are great! Thanks for the inspiration!
Thanks! So glad you stopped by and were inspired a bit.
Very pretty. I like the embossed stripes. Great way to use scraps.
Thanks! Basically they were cut, but not really what I would consider scraps as they were 1/2 or 1/4 sheets of cardstock. I was glad to find colors that worked well together.
Love all the colors you chose, the angled position of the strips, and how you mirrored the color pattern from the center. Looks great! The embossing really adds a lot to an already beautiful panel.
You did a great job on this Lisa! It’s okay to get behind on the homework, as the classes take time to watch, then you have to think about what you want to create. I agree with everyone on the colors working really well together and looking wonderful with the embossing.
You did a wonderful job on this and those strips look so cheerful too. The embossing adds something special to the strips.
