August Stamp of the Month - Framed Paper Fundamentals Card

Do you ever want to create a card or layout using certain colors, but you just can't find the right paper? Sometimes the theme is all wrong, or you don't like the pattern. I was having that problem when trying to create a simple thank you card. Fortunately, there's an easy solution.

I love the colors from the Zoe collection, but I just wanted a simple background. So I dug out my Paper Fundamentals to add the colors I wanted with a coordinating pattern.

What are Paper Fundamentals? Double-sided paper that comes in all of our colors and has a glossy resist pattern on one side and a bold print on the other.

Technique: I used all seven of the Zoe colors (Canary, Glacier, Slate, Sorbet, Sweet Leaf, Whisper, and White Daisy) but kept it simple by mainly using cardstock and tucking in a few pieces of Paper Fundamentals for texture. That allowed the beautiful pattern from the Framed stamp set to stand out. 

Fun Fact: I love mixing old product with new product. The Coral Shimmer Trim and Green Triangles are brand spankin' new, while the adorable enamel bird is an embellishment I've had sitting around for awhile. Without having a specific theme for my paper, I could use any embellishments.

This fun sentiment stamp set is only $5 with any $50 purchase! This stamp set, along with the current Paper Fundamental patterns, are only available until August 31st. You can get both on my website.
