When the image is complicated or includes the greeting in the image it is often wise to just do some simple layering with plain or patterned papers. This is how today's cards were constructed
This seed package image is large enough to stand on its own as a card front. I simply layered onto yellow card then a purple glittery card base. The flowers in the center are sticky-backed punchouts I received as a gift.
This image featured a placard being held up by the bear. I stamped the text inside. The image was then close-trimmed and the corners rounded. After layering onto shimmery green cardstock I tied a ribbon knot around it. This is layered onto a cream card base.
Finally, This image and greeting stamp just seemed to go together! I used a Nestability to cut out the image and then trimmed the top and bottom points off. It looks a little more playful like this than with the points which looked formal. The striped paper matches the heart and is also whimsical. Rounded corners on the pink stripe and the green card add to the casual feel. The yellow card base matches the flowers.
