This card is for the Papertrey Ink Make It Monday #154. This week the challenge is to make a one-layer card with some texture. The way I added texture was to stamp flowers with layers.
I also used one of Papertrey's background stamps for the lower section of the card. After ruining a few cards, I decided to try taking a sheet of cardstock cut at 5.5 x 8.5. I lightly noted the exact middle of the card with tick marks, then stamped the stamp having one half of the design above and one half below the exact middle. Then I cut the card at the 4.25 mark, making two perfect A2 cards. There are about 10 lines on this particular background stamp, and I only wanted about half the lines on each card, so this worked out and kept the lines straight. In my next life, I am NOT going to be a Virgo!!
These are both the same card, but each has a different sentiment. Since I make cards for OWH, I try to make cards that are appropriate for the military.
