Design by Lisa Spangler : Lisa tied a ribbon around the front of her card base to ground the design, then layered cardstock, patterned paper, and a decorative label over the ribbon to create a focal point.

Design by Tracy Kyle : Tracy used patterned paper printed with sweet sentiments to create a colorful background on this Valentine's Day card. She dotted the "i" of her greeting with a heart for a seasonal touch. Editor's Tip: Tracy added subtle interest to her card by placing a heart of rhinestones behind her card sentiment. For an opposite effect, punch small holes in a shape on your card front, letting the inside of the card show through.

Design by Lisa Storms : To create this clever card, Lisa embossed a wood-grain pattern on brown cardstock, then inked the edges to help the texture stand out. She added a die cut, piece of patterned paper, and stickers to simply embellish the greeting.

Design by Tracy Kyle : A simple owl piecing gives Tracy's card a cute, trendy look. She covered the character in hearts and placed it on heart-pattern paper to play up the holiday theme.
