Sometimes you just don’t have the right papers that work with your stamped images. Since I love to create backgrounds, I pulled out stamps and inks and got to work on a couple of Christmas Cards. I repeatedly stamped the stripe stamp on a panel of white using Canyon Ink on one panel and Evergreen Ink on the other panel. Then I used the dot stamp on another panel of white also using Canyon Ink and Evergreen Ink.
Next, I matted the striped panels to use as the base of the cards, then wrapped each with ribbon and twine before adding to the card base.
Next, I cut the dotted panels on an angle to fit each card and inked them with Desert Sand. I matted them with cardstock and added them to the card with foam adhesives.
Finally I colored the images, die cut them, matted them with coordinating cardstock and added them to the card with foam adhesives for dimension. The perfect backgrounds don’t you think?
Thanks for stopping by today.
