This card shows one of my rare forays into the use of pre-printed papers. Using non-stamped papers always feels like cheating to me, but there’s no denying that they are gorgeous to the max. There are many lovely collections available and those that come in the 6” size seem to be the best ones for cardmaking as the designs are usually scaled down to card size. I’ve recently bought a couple of packs on sale to play with and I suppose it won’t be long before I’m squandering my shekels and stuffing my stash with these too. Sigh . . .
