One More Printed Background Cards

I am so enjoying these printed background cards that I am doing with the Silhouette.  This was another fav background paper from the Sihouette Library.  Monday on the Silhouette forum on of the ladies was commenting she used Epson Presentation paper, I have used that before for some of my photos and love it, so while I was out in "H" yesterday I picked some up.  I have an Epson printer and this paper takes the color beautifully, however it is only 40lbs., which is okay but I am used to working with 80# and heavier. On this card it was worth giving up the weight for the beautiful print job.  I love the fade of the scrabble board behind the poppies, two of my favorite things, lol.  I cut a topper and added some white polka dots for texture, print and cut the scrabble piece with her first name initial, I attached it to the border with some waxed linen book binding thread, and put 3 little black dots in the right corner.  "Thanks so much" was done with Silhouette and Pen holder.

So Happy Wednesday and enjoy! Hugs

Sandi, it looks so lovely! the colors are vibrant and lively. Like you, I don't like the idea of the paper being so light weight but I do love price and the colors the paper produces. I usually cut a heavier piece of card stock to mount the Epson photo paper on. Thank you for sharing this beautiful card. xxx - Debbie
