Basic Backgrounds

On the weekend I had a workshop with Baby cards being the theme. So I have had lots of fun making baby cards lately. I picked the Basic Backgrounds stamp set because it is so versatile. This set will make great cards for Fathers Day, Christmas, Children, and of course Babies.
In the 'Welcome little star' card below, we embossed the star on vellum and then punched it out with the large star punch, which fits perfectly. We also embossed the word 'welcome' with white embossing powder to make it stand out more. The card base is stamped with Versamark.

Stamp Sets : Basic Backgrounds, Warm Words, Rough Edge Alpha, Everyday Flexible Phrases
Ink : Versamark, Bashful Blue
Card : Vellum, Bashful Blue, Whisper White
Punches : large star, small & large oval
Accessories : White embossing powder, embossing buddy, heat tool, silver brads
This card was really fun to make, and I think it looks quite good.
Thanks Kristy for a great afternoon, and for keeping us toasty warm with your fire place.
Happy Stampin'
