2021-05-06; Make your own background


At Let’s Craft & Create #171 this week the challenge is to make a card and NOT use any decorative scrapbook paper. Challenge accepted.

In this first photo I stated by sponging stripes of blue and green. I masked the top half off and just added stripes to the bottom. You can see that I followed the lines on the jumbo sized lined post-it note.

I masked off the bottom portion this time. Now I’ve sponged the top half of the piece all blue and then stamped the floral design in a darker blue.

In this photo I show that I also embossed the piece. The top half is with a flourish design and the bottom half with a vertical brick pattern.

Now that I’ve got my background made, here is what I did with it. All the stamps are by Stampin Up, except for the leaf. That is a stamp and punch combo by Martha Stewart.

The flower centers are ribbon trim that I picked up from the dollar store. I snipped the trim apart and added one piece to each flower.

And one last look at the card before you go on about your day.

Thanks for stopping by.
