Want to learn how to make your own background paper for card making? I’m thrilled to teach you! Your handmade cards are extra unique with this technique! Grab your stamps, ink and paper for #simplestamping.

 

As I was making these cards I remembered an old technique using scissors (check out Stampin’ Up! paper snips–they are above your average in quality) to rough up the edges of my layers.  You can see what I am talking about in my video.  All of these cards are flat with no dimensionals used.

Can you see how I used my scissors to rough up the edges of the Pear Pizzazz layer for a Shabby Chic look?
