For both of these cards, a white or ivory background for the sentiment would have been a little stark against the pattern paper. So I softened the look by stamping a very pale image in the background. The video below shows the sentiment for the top card which starts with a simple white rectangle that gets punched, distressed and stamped for a more custom look.
Such pretty cards. I love the tip with the circle punch. I used to do this before I got that punch.ReplyDelete
