Birthday Card – with Personalised Background

Today it’s my turn to make a card for the Crafty Card Gallery Design Team challenge, which this month is Birthday.

I’m always on the lookout for something different, as you probably realise by now.

My friend Marcelle found a video on how to make your own background paper, and I can see how handy this technique will be.

Rather than try to explain it to you, I’ve posted the video that got both of us very excited!

Do have a try at this technique – it’s very easy and quite fun to do!

Stamps used on this card:

Background: Garden Seeds Packets from Inspired by Stamping. Butterfly was a giveaway in a magazine.

Greeting: Stamp-It  (sorry, I can’t find the name of the set on the label.)

Everything else is from my stash.

Thanks for looking, and as always, if you want to comment, and the comment box isn’t showing, click the title of this post and it will magically appear!
