Making Cards with Your Gel Press Printed Papers

Hi everyone.  Today I am going to show you how I made some cards with the background prints I made in my last video using my gelli plate and my Vivid Ultra Metallics from ColourArte.  Let your imagination run wild with all the possibilities of how to use these fun, but oh so addictive to make background prints.


Here are a few closeups of the individual cards.  It is so hard to capture the true shimmer and shine of these printed backgrounds, but in person, they truly are beautiful.
