This is another card of mine that was on the Stamper's Showcase. I am into monochromatic cards in a big way, so I LOVE Stampin' Up's color coordination in terms of ink, cardstock and embelishments, and this card shows them off just perfectly.
Click on the photo to enlarge and see the background--that's what I want to focus on this morning. You can create this very easily with your paper trimmer and a bone folder. All you do is score a straight line every half inch all the way across the card front. Then turn it and do the same thing in perpendicular lines the other direction. Bingo! You've got a grid of perfect squares that adds a lot of texture without adding a lot of busyness. In the case of this baby card, it turned out looking like a soft baby blanket (especially when you brush ink on the raised lines).
One more note on this card and I've got to go make lunch for the little boogers--the heart in the center of the square punch frame is made from the scallop circle punch--yep, I said the scallop circle punch. You just cut two of the scallops out! You can get several hearts from one scallop circle--and they just fit on a dimensional. Very cool! Another awesome use for this extremely versatile punch.
