Quick & Easy Backgrounds for Handmade Greeting Cards

Hi Beauties~

Did you get a lot of Christmas gifts that came in bubblewrap?  I did, so I wondered if it would make a cool textured background for my hand made greeting cards.  The answer is yes!!!  I was so excited to see what a great background turned out.  First I tried it with ink refills and that came out way too messy and dark (too much ink).  Then I tried it by running it through the Stampin' Up! Big Shot in a sandwich bag.  That came out real nice.  I also tried it with the bubblewrap wrapped around a clear block and that came out just as well as the one I ran through the Stampin' Up! Big Shot.  So I decided that would be the one I showed you.  Very quick, very easy and such a great texture!  Here is the card I made along with a short video how to of how I did the background.

Wasn't that easy?  I hope you enjoyed this fast tip today!!!  And check out below how you can earn FREE MARKERS!!! Just for subscribing to My Paper Pumpkin.
