Card of the Week- Make your Own Patterned Paper!

For this week's card, we used the Ivy & Flowers stamp image from Frogs Whiskers Inc. to create our own patterned paper.  Below are the supplies we used to make the project.

We used Memento ink in  Rose Bud Red to stamp the image several times on white cardstock.  Hint: if you want your image to be lighter than the actual ink you are using, simply "stamp it off" on scrap paper to remove some of the ink on the rubber before stamping it onto your actual cardstock.

Next, using Memento ink in Bamboo Leaves, we stamped the rectangular shadow stamp twice without reinking to create 2 different intensities of the green shade.

Next we created the greeting as a focal point by layering it with several circle pieces.  Here are the punches we used.

And below is the final card!  Next time you don't have any matching patterned paper, remember how easy it is to make your own using stamps you already have in your stash!
