While staying with my friend Charlene in Holdrege NE she issued a challenge, "Do something with this 8x8 Safari Stack from DCWV". I never could resist a challenge.
The print papers are from DCWV's Safari stack. The goldy/brown under the happy birthday is a Dutch Boy paint chip.
I have used two different decorative scissors and punches.
The scrapbook paper covers the entire card front and presents a dramatic background.
I prefer the 8x8 or mat stacks for card making as the prints are smaller. Plus they cost less so I can have more, LOL, of course one can never have too much paper.
