For my template this Thursday I have changed the background for each card and changed the image. I did not put any sayings on these cards because I like to have blank cards that I can personalize for any situation.
Card Number 1 uses the washi tape that coordinates with the Pop of Pink designer paper. I love using washi tape on cards and find it so easy to use. Tear, place on the card, tear again. I never use scissors.
Card number 2 uses one of the papers from the Serene Scenery paper stack. These papers are 6 by 6 and come with 48 in a pack. I love how much fun the ones in the Serene Scenery stack are to use. Several of them are photos of nature.
Card number 3 uses a stamped image as the background. This image can also fit on top of the lady with the hat stamp and eliminate the need to color in the image. A very casual artsy look.
As you can imagine I could keep going with changing my backgrounds. Maybe use an embossing folder, creating a word background. Why don't you try making a card using one of these background techniques.
Come back tomorrow to see how I take a simple card and turn it into a gift card holder and a simple box.
