Card Making Backgrounds is a summary of all the background ideas I have created for my hand made greeting cards. (this page is in construction – check back often as I add more details and links).

You can create Card Making Backgrounds with many stamping products and I delve into many of them here. Some techniques are quick and simple, some take a little more time. Either Way, they will help you make beautiful cards.
