Card with a bow


I would like to share a multi-purpose card that did not take me very quick to make. I have recently started trying to use wrapping paper as backgrounds on my cards. The choice of designs is so tempting, and you get lots of it on a roll, so no fear to use it up too quickly...

BUT a word of warning, too: wrapping paper is often very thin, which means it will need to be matted onto another piece of card if you want to raise the design. And most of all, at least if you use a waterbased glue like I often do, it can be hard to attach to your card without wrinkles... doh!

A really good multi-purpose card Agnes. Love your choice of colours. Thanks for the tips on wrapping paper - I have had a few wrinkly background in my time too. Thanks for joining the One Stop Craft Challenge.
