Don't get me wrong I love my Cricut. but I need to really crank out some basic cards that I could use for any occasion and in a hurry. So over the next few post I will show you these basic cards I created. The exciting thing I did was use mostly old stamps I have had for years and hadn't used in quite awhile.
I was thinking of doing an around the world series, but stopped after only a couple of continents. lol
But the first continent was Africa.
Another advantage of a basic design is it is flexible. This design can be easily altered and work for a card opening right to left as well as bottom to top.
If you don't have a corresponding piece of patterned paper, don't forget you can always create your own by using a large background stamp or using a smaller stamp and stamping it randomly to create your own background paper.
So here is what you cant get from basics 101.
1 sheet solid contrasting paper
1 sheet pattern paper or paper stamped with a background stamp
1 large stamp
1 corresponding smaller stamp
Hands taped stamp Sign and date
You will have at least 4 back to basic cards. Don't forget to alternate directions.
Well in Back to Basic 101, we have visited Africa, I think in Back to Basics 102 we should visit Asia.
Don't forget to send in your back to basics card.
