Birch Background Stamp for Your Card Making
It was love at first sight with the Birch Background Stamp. Like truly magical love at first sight!
I am a huge fan of background stamps to begin with and I normally like the more subtle textures. I also really like wood grains images for backgrounds. I much prefer having wood textures in stamps rather than in patterned paper so that I can stamp them in whatever color I want.
It’s with confidence that I can say that I have already gotten my money’s worth from this new stamp as many times as I have already used it!
Let me share with you a project I just made with it.
Here is the latest card I have made using the Birch Background stamp. This card can be a card you can make for both men and women.

Step By Step Instructions

- Stamp your Birch Background Stamp onto a piece of white card stock (4” x 5-1/4”) in Crumb Cake ink.
- Using the Stitched Labels die set, add the “cross stitch like texture” in the lower left hand corner of your stamped birch piece of card stock. Secure this piece to your Night of Navy card base (4-1/4” x 11”).
- Die cut out the Balmy Blue circle that layers behind your sentiment from your Stitched Labels dies.
- Punch out two Mossy Meadow leaves using your Leaf Punch.
- Create a banner on each end of your Night of Navy card stock (1/2” x 2-3/4”) and attach to your card base.
- Secure your sentiment circle to your Balmy Blue circle.
- Add loops of Silver Thread behind your sentiment layers.
- Attach your leaves behind your sentiment layer.
- Secure all these layers to your card using Dimensionals.
For the inside of your card, stamp the leaves from the same stamp set in Mossy Meadow ink onto a piece of white card stock (4” x 5-1/4”) and attach to the inside of your card.
