Bubble Wrap Background Technique with By the Tide and a How To Video

The Bubble Wrap Background is an easy technique to learn and it just goes so great with a stamp set like By the Tide. This is the card using that technique that my club members did this past week. And how do you like those sand dollars made from our Dazzling Diamond Glimmer Paper? All left overs from a swap card that I made for Insprie/Create/Share 2014! The cut out center is from the new framelit set called Flower Fair.

Here is a look at the inside panel. Another new item that I used on this card that I've been really impressed with is our new 12x12 Kraft paper. It looks great as you can see and it's also a bit sturdier than our regular card stock which will be nice if you want to create boxes or other 3-D items with it. Enjoy the video and thank so much for stopping by!

What a sweet and fun card showing multiple techniques! I loved how you stamped the coral for the inside panel, using the card as your "scratch" paper - since it was going to be covered by the panel anyway! genius! :)

I always love your designs and layouts. simple and quick but so much to them. A question I have is that I noticed that whenever you add the inside panel you only adhere the top of it instead of all the way around. Why is that?

Thanks for all you share!

Hi Jen -
Thank you for taking the time to comment! So appreciated! Actually, the only reason I stamped in the inside panel is because I had misplaced my scrap paper and I didn't want to turn off the video to find it! lol! But yes, if didn't matter in that particular case since the white panel covered it up.
The reason I only apply adhesive along the top of the inside panel is that it makes for a nice look . . . a more easy, flowing and elegant look. Plus, it's really all you need to hold it in place so along with being more elegant . . . it's more economical, too!
Have a great day!!
