Make A Card With Your Background Stash

Hello, Joyce Erb here today. If you are like me you may have a bunch of backgrounds you made in your stash. Maybe you tried different techniques or products then saved the results. If not then you can substitute patterned paper. But seriously, making backgrounds is sooo fun! You can see how to make many backgrounds at my Blog or YouTube channel.

I started with a background from my stash. It is glossy paper with alcohol inks dabbed on. Then add a few drops of alcohol.

I cut the Penny Black Half Circle out 2 times then trimmed off the top corners. This die is currently on the waitlist so be sure to add your email.

Next I glued onto the background (see video for specifics). Then added the sentiment which is a die from Pink & Main - Hello.  The panel is then mounted onto a blue cardbase. I use Gina K cardstock for my bases.
