A New Backgrounder

Tomorrow, Cornish Heritage Farms is releasing a new backgrounder called Fuchsia Tiles.  This line of stamps is great for creating your own patterned paper, in any color combination you wish.  For both of my cards today, I've chosen to emboss the backgrounder panel for a bit of texture, and to enable me to get a light-colored pattern on a darker cardstock.  For the card above, I embossed in white on a fuchsia pink cardstock.  I accented the pattern with a few pearls, tied it up with some silk ribbon, and added a sentiment from the Domestic Love set.  This makes a great, quick and easy wedding card, done up in the couples' wedding colors.

For my second card, I've embossed in pale blue on black cardstock.  I stamped the Freesia image in black, along with a sentiment from the Ornamental Beauty set.  A little velvet ribbon is the only accent.  I've kept the color palette very limited, for a more elegant look. 

You'll be able to see lots of great samples using this backgrounder in the gallery tomorrow.  Hope you're having a great Monday!
