Start with two layers of solid colors, then choose a very special patterned paper. Pick one that has something special on the righthand side, a flourish of stars, a dramatic swirl or maybe a sweet picture.
On the left, you'll mat the perfect phrase or image on a coordinating card stock to give it some added dimension.
So on paper it may look like a challenge, but it's really very simple.
On the left, I hand-stamped my phrase and matted it on a darker card stock. I don't always stamp on colored paper, but when I do, it's a very dramatic combination.
