Using Decorative Paper Backgrounds
Now that you know about the paper, "Where do you get it?", you may ask. I buy my paper online most of the time. I like to buy it by the sheet, so I can sample many papers and experiment with a few card designs. Then I go back and buy a bulk amount for whatever project I happen to be doing. My favorite store for buying my paper online is Scrapbook.com They have a HUGE variety and choice of papers and everything is very easy to find and search out. PLUS, their selections are available by the sheet AND by bulk. LOVE IT!!
Some great uses for this sort of paper? All sorts! I like to get creative with it. Sure, you can just attach it to the front of a card and add some ribbon and BAM you've got a pretty cute invitation. But you can also go to town with paper punches, paper edgers, and die cut machines.
Get creative! Think outside of the box and experiment! Get your hands on some decorative paper backgrounds for invitations, and I know you'll come up with the perfect invitation for your upcoming event!
