More Pattern Paper

Another way to use pattern paper is simply as your background. Most pattern paper is lighter weight than cardstock. Therefore, I would advise matting the pattern onto a heavier cardstock. In this example I matted the pattern paper from the Brocade Background DSP onto Very Vanilla and Chocolate Chip. Using a large area of pattern paper, balances the larger image. All of the edges for all mats and images are distressed with the cutter kit. The main image is from the "Lovely as a Tree" Stamp Set. I stamped the image in Versamark and then dabbed it with various earth element chalks using my sponge daubers. (Again the scan takes away part of the image) The image is then layered on Old Olive and Chocolate Chip cardstock. The chocolate chip taffata ribbon and vintage brads finish off the card.
