Cardboard anyone?


I just love the look of this new Fine Lines Backgrounder stamped on Kraft cardstock. Does it not look like faux cardboard? I decided to try a quick masking technique to make a fun faux torn cardboard edge on my layer. By simply tearing a piece of scrap cardstock and then using it to mask the top area while I stamped the backgrounder and then sponged to create a shadow, I gave this card a bit more dimension without adding another layer.

I’ve also been having fun making my own custom embellishments using this darling butterfly stamp from one of Kim Hughes’ new releases. Simply stamp onto a Clear Card Sheet using Black Stazon (one of those must-have inks IMHO) and you can make all the custom butterflies you wish!



Quick Tip: When using clear embellishments…layer them over other items such as flowers, ribbon etc. to highlight their clear properties.

Wishing you a fabulous day!
