Large Colorful Floral Cards with Pieced Backgrounds

Hello Everyone,

Here I am back today with the final post showcasing the pieced background cards.  As you can tell by how many cards I made, I really liked this technique.  I found that I could really get creative with the focal points and embellishments.

Here is how I made the backgrounds.

 The background was created by cutting strips of decorative paper and laying them down on an adhesive sheet.  The backgrounds were then cut to size.  I had fun with this background technique and made a lot of cards using them.  I was also able to use up lots of my decorative paper scraps.

Stamp: You've Got This from Stampin' Up retired

Flowers are colored with Copic markers.

Embellishments for this card: pearls, lace, die cut circles

Embellishments: Rick rack, ribbon, die cut circles

Embellishments: lace trim, pearls, die cut circles

Embellishments: pearls, rick rack, ribbon, die cut circles

I sure hope you enjoyed the journey.  I shared all of the pieced background cards with you over the past six weeks!!!  Let me know if you like this technique in the comments.  Would love to see what you make too.  Have a happy day!!
