Creative Background

For this card I decided to create my own papers. Everything started out as white card-stock.

Background: Mask off stripes horizontally then sponge blue ink; repeat vertically. Using a texture patterned folder, run through embossing machine. Cut white card-stock 1/8" larger than sides of textured piece, then edge punch bottom. Adhere textured piece to the edged piece, then cut top leaving 1/8" boder.

Flowers: Sponge red ink on white card-stock, punch out with flower punch, and edge by sponging red ink on edges.  Assemble white paper flower over the top and attach with silver brad. Apply Stickles to brad to bring in background color.

Sentiment: Sponge blue ink on cardstock, stamp sentiment in black, then cut out and sponge edges. Sponge red ink on a piece of card-stock. Mat sentiment with white cardstock, then the red-inked sponged card-stock.

Main card: Sponge front of card with red ink and assemble!

Thank you for stopping by my blog & happy stamping!
Lisa :)
