Stamping and Cards

The muted patterns of the Kaisercraft paper really lent themselves to stamping - and I did quite a bit of it on this card. You can use stamps to alter the look of your paper to get more use out of it.

First, I used a large background stamp of definitions with vintage photo distress ink. I chose a paper with several colors to use as my background paper.

I then took a separate piece of paper and embossed the doily stamp with white detail powder. I chose one with more greens so it would stand out from the background. I layered a flower on top of the stamp.

Finally, the sentiment was also stamped on a scrap of the Kaisercraft paper - green again.
