New CHF Backgrounder

To continue on the discussion of background stamps, I have a card I created with a new background stamp by Cornish Heritage Farms! I think CHF has some of the most amazing and unique backgrounders. And they are expanding their offering!!!

The new release of 8 Backgrounders is slated for this Thursday... and you don't want to miss out!I created this card with the new Cracked Earth Backgrounder. The card has a truly masculine feel to the design and will make a great card for a male co-worker later this month. I personally struggle with cards for men. It's easy enough to find "girly images". That's where I think this backgrounder makes a versatile choice and I love how this completed.

Stick around this week for more sneak peeks...
