My Scrap Stash yielded two small pieces of mahogany-colored paper printed in a foulard pattern that I thought would make a great background for a guy card. But I needed a bigger piece for the layout I had in mind . . .
. . . so I spaced the two pieces where I wanted them and taped an arrangement of die cuts over the opening. Now the printed papers look like one single piece. I absolutely love how you can cheat while rubber stamping and have it be the right thing to do!
