I fell in love with Lee Conrey's crimped background, so had to make one for myself. I was so excited that I taught this at my Technique Class last night! It was definitely well received!
You do need a lighter weight cardstock to get the best effect, so Whisper White worked perfectly! I also have an idea for a Very Vanilla card that I may try out today.
I started with a base of Real Red and added a layer of Soft Suede cardstock. I did the Crimper Technique with Whisper White, then trimmed it down to fit with the Soft Suede mat. I felt it needed trimming because the crimping will stretch out the cardstock a little bit.
For the focal piece, I stamped Stampin' Up!'s Tree Trimming stamp in Versamark on Whisper White cardstock, then embossed with Gold Embossing Powder. I layered it on Brushed Gold cardstock. Finally, I added a Real Red 1/4 Grosgrain bow to the top.
I love all the texture that this background has! So much fun!
