How are you today? It's Friday, so that must be some good news, right? Today at Sisters in Stamping we are sharing with you some great projects that focus on the backgrounds stamps. Background stamps can be either a great addition to a card or the primary focal point of the card. Sometimes you look at your cards and say, "Oh, something is missing. It's needs a little something." Well, most of the time a background stamp is able to do the trick of completing the project. A little look of texture that the backgrounds supply is often the perfect finishing touch.
This background stamp is perfect for making some quick and easy thank you notes. We can never have enough thank you's on hand. Honestly, I think we (as a society on a whole) need to get back to the basics of showing people we appreciate their thoughtfulness and generosity with a hand-written note. We need to send more happy mail.
A couple of punches with a little shading on the edges of the petals and you have a great little focal point for your thank you card. The flower is put together using dimensionals between each layer. Plus I "curled" the edges of the petal using a bone folder to give them a little more dimension, which adds the perfect touch to make them look a little more realistic.
Don't forget to head over to Sisters in Stamping for more ideas using background stamps. Thanks for stopping by.
