Beginners Guide To Creating Backgrounds On Cards

Hello! Today I am sharing a beginners guide on how to make backgrounds on cards. This is also a fun way to make cards that are flat and not bulky, so they are easy to send in the mail.


Imagine and The Crafter's Workshop has provided me with some of the product to create this project. The opinions I share are solely my own and I only design for companies that I completely love their products.

Below is a video tutorial showing how I created the background for each of my cards.

I used Imagine's Fireworks! Spray in Bahama Blue and Pear Tart on the background on the card below. On the ribbon and flower, I used Fireworks! Spray in Danube Blue. The sentiment is from the Waffle Flower Iris You Stamp Set and I used StazOn Pigment Ink in Piano Black to stamp it.


On the Halloween card which I think is my favorite, I used Fireworks! Spray in Tangelo and Tuxedo Black.  I used the Poppystamps Halloween Fun Stamp Set to stamp the sentiment and the bats with StazOn Pigment Ink in Piano Black.


On my next card, I used The Crafter's Workshop TCW830 Dash Triangle Stencil with some Fireworks! Spray in Lilac Posies and Lulu Lavender. The sentiment is from the Sizzix Spring Phrases Stamp Set and used the StazOn Pigment Ink in Piano Black.


For my next fun card, I used The Crafter's Workshop TCW848 Pineapple Stencil along with some Fireworks! Spray in Bamboo Leaves and Dandelion. The sentiment is from the Sizzix Spring Phrases Stamp Set and used the StazOn Pigment Ink in Piano Black.


Which one is your favorite?


Interested in the products I used? Products that are still available are linked to multiple shops below, for your convenience.
Lists may contain affiliate links where possible at no cost to you, what so ever. Affiliate and product disclosure can be found here.
I design for several companies because I truly love their products! Anything I recommend on my blog is something that I genuinely love and regularly use. I buy most of my own supplies. However, I do receive some free product to work with and I sometimes make money for the projects I make. I DO NOT get paid for product reviews, I give my honest opinion about the products I use and I will never recommend a product that I do not like or would not use.
