Episode 91: Making My Own Background Paper

Hi Crafters and Friends!  I wanted to share with you on how I made my own background paper with this card.  It's super simple to do and has a great effect.  I used the Spellbinders Impressabilities tool which is usually used to emboss paper.  I wanted to use the design on them as the design on my paper.  If you don't have the Impressabilities try cutting out a design w/ your Cricut to use in it's place.  It's super easy.

**I want to say a super THANK YOU to Glora.  I don't have the Disney cartridge that Tink is on so she cut and put her together for me.  THANKS GLORA!!!!**  :)

Card Recipe:
Flower Silhouette Spellbinders Impressabilities
Worn Lipstick Tim Holtz Distress Ink
Diamond Stickles
PTI - Hawaiian Shore and White cardstock
Cricut - Tinkerbell & Friends 5"

~ Thanks for Watching!

The background paper turned out gorgeous. I have 3 of those and I didn't know what to do with them. But now I know what I'm going to try. I have a snowflake one and I can hardly wait to see it done with blue distress ink. Thanks for always sharing such great ideas with us. YOU ROCK!
