The Operation Write Home challenge this month for the Our Daily Bread Designs is to create our own background, instead of using patterned paper. I have done this many times, but was looking for some new ideas to try. I found this idea on Facebook and decided to try it out.
As the paper is embossed, the color is transferred to both sides. I then cut the embossed paper into 2 pieces and turn one piece over to expose the debossed side. Then adhere both pieces to the dark brown layer and adhere this to the base card. I added a stamped greeting after card was finished.
