Here's a card I made for a special friend for her birthday. The paper is Marina Mist and Cherry Cobbler and white. The background hounds tooth is a stamp from Heritage Farms which is now out of business. Too bad because they had some great background stamps that are 6x6 I think. I use the stamp press with these and it works very well if you make sure to press firmly in the middle. It's a great tool. I like this so much that it is one of the cards we used in my class.
