Back to Backgrounds!

Hey all! Hope your week is off to a smashing start! I have some fun things to share this week -- and it's all about backgrounds! Impression Obsession recently unveiled a couple dozen new backgrounds called Cover-A-Card backgrounds. They are over sized - so that you can cover the front of your card -- completely! I thought - what fun to just use these as focal points to make quick and easy cards!

So, my friends, here you have it!! I took a 12 by 12 piece of sea foam paper and literally just stamped on slices of it using black ink (Versafine Black Onyx) to make my high contrast card. The bottom stamp is called Tapestry 2 and the top background is Harlequin. Use a circle and scalloped circle die cut to create your mat for your sentiment (Love Life), mat it up and add some bling and.... voila... an any occasion card to send off whenever you need it! Just a little pizazz! Done!
