Using strips of waste paper
Do you have a box or drawer full of all those little pieces of design paper that you can't bare to through away.
I have and decided to use some of them by making striped backgrounds for my cards, I cover a piece of card stock slightly bigger than I need for my card with a piece of Jac paper (double sided sticky sheet) or you can just stick your strips on with whatever method you use for adhering your layers, then I just start sticking on my strips when finished I trim the piece to whatever size I need for my card. For my card below I used ½ inch strips but you could use any size even odd sized strips and you don't have to lay them straight like I have, lay them on an angle or whatever else you can come up with.
Herr's the list of dies I used for my card .......
The bow I think is Memory Box Perfect Bow
and the sentiment stamps is from the Stamp-it set siste046
