Mixing It Up

Hi Crafters,

Welcome to another day of crafting inspiration! Today I want to show you a simple yet effective way of creating an embossed type backdrop for your cards or scrapbooking pages.  With my youngest daughter's 4th birthday fast approaching, this was the perfect opportunity to try this technique out!

For this card I used the large number framelits, however you can easily select other shapes or images to create your own unique designs to suit the occasion! Butterflies, leaves or flowers would look just as pretty! The great thing about this technique is that you don't need a long list of supplies to create it - all you need is the big shot & your choice of framelits & some glue.  

Once you have selected your particular background shape/s & cut them out, lay them out on your cardstock to arrange prior to applying adhesive.  I recommend adhering them using the Tombow Multi-purpose Glue which enables you to manoeuvre the shape into the desired position if placed incorrectly the first time, without ruining or ripping your cardstock trying to replace it. It dries clear, & if you do have glue which can be detected, wait till it dries & then gently rub with a glue removing eraser (the Stampin' Up! one is brilliant) and you won't know it was there! 

And there you have it - super simple but another technique for creating unique and beautiful backgrounds!  

I hope you have been inspired to give this a try! If you need to purchase supplies, head to my online store HERE, & do remember to pop in this month's Hostess Code UK4QTE6Q to receive a little thank you gift from me :)

Enjoy the rest of your week & I'll be back soon with some more crafty inspiration.
