The card above was the most fun to make. I made it from the strips that were cut off to make the first card. I also used some swirl remnants from a Memory Box die that I used in the last card. Added some coordinating ribbon and colored the sentiment with a coordinating COPIC marker.
Can you tell that the background above is the reverse image of the one used in the previous two cards? I will be showing my students how to get two prints with your templates when you use spray inks. It took a while for me to perfect the process but I am so happy with the results.
Lastly, I used an intricate Memory Box die on the right hand side. I then cut up a piece of the background paper to make squares that I layered on the left. It was screaming for a popped up sentiment. I used an old SU stamp and punches.
I really enjoy making my own background paper. It gives me so much more room for creativity.
