I often get asked how I stamp my own background paper to look like it was pre-printed. It’s really quite easy so I thought I would share the technique with you with my first ever video!!! Watch here and then come back to see the photographs of the cards and the supplies I used.
What did you think? A few blunders, but that’s life. I hope you saw how easy it is to stamp in a diagonal to make a nice background. Below are the cards I demonstrated and what I used for each one.
