Background stamps are a paper crafter’s dream for creating amazing greeting cards quickly. They come in a variety of designs—some with patterns, some with textures, and some even with scenes. They allow you to ink up and stamp in a single step. 

I am using the Stampin’ Up! Drizzling Droplets and Leaf Collection stamps to make two birthday cards. Remember, by changing the greeting, you can easily transform these cards for any occasion. Short on time? Not a problem! These cards can be made in about 10 minutes making them perfect for busy crafters or beginners looking for a quick and splendid card.
