One of the earliest stamping techniques I ever learned, and still a favorite, is making your own background patterned paper with stamps. I love taking a cute set and several coordinating colors and just going crazy with it! I used the Secret Garden stamp set for this card, with So Saffron, Calypso Coral, Pear Pizzazz and Blushing Bride ink colors.
TIP: You stamp this flower paper all in one piece and then cut it in three equal parts after it's done, isn't that cool? Here's some measurements if you want to try this layout at home!
- card base: 8.5x5.5 inches (half sheet of 8.5x11 cardstock)
- mat layer: 3.75x5 inches
- neutral layer: 3x4.5 inches (sliced in three 1.5-inch sections after stamping)
Easy! Are you going to try it? Leave a comment below if you are!
