[In the Details] Custom Backgrounds by Nichol Spohr

Hello! It's Nichol here with an new In the Details video!

Creating your own custom patterned backgrounds is a snap with a layered stamp set. The Pretty Wings stamps makes for a gorgeous background when paired with the awesome Waffle Flower Inks.

I layered Safe Choice, My Pleasure, Oh Happy Day, You Said What, Chirp Chirp, New Fish In Pond, Daydreaming, and Happy Go Lucky dye inks.

Black paint splatters over the background, add interest and a bit of distressing to the design. In order to still see the butterflies through the greeting, I die cut Lacy Layers from vellum and added a stamped and embossed greeting from the First Step Stamp Set.

Frames were die cut from white and black cardstock using the same dies and layered one on to top of another around the vellum greeting. The background is still visible through the vellum, but slightly muted so it’s still easy to read!

An additional Pretty Wings butterfly was stamped and then die cut before being adhered underneath the greeting, using foam adhesive under the wings to make it appear to have just settled there on the card.

Hope you enjoyed and thanks for stopping by!
