MAKE IT MONDAY CHALLENGE
CUSTOMIZING PATTERN PAPER

Even though it is Wednesday, PTI is bringing us the Make It Monday Challenge!  I am joining  Lizzie as she shares some tips HERE for sprucing up your patterned papers with stamps, to give them a more customized look.  
I have used this technique before.  I rarely create multiples, but at that time,  I stamped extra paper and die cuts so I could somewhat replicate the cute card I made. 
I just  knew there would be a need for more Baby cards for all of my friends who are becoming Grandparents ;-)

My Card ~
I used an old wood block stamp 'Biased Stripe' stamp, crisscrossed it to make a plaid on Stamper's Select White, randomly adding the tiny hearts.  The lion and sentiment stamps from PTI's Sweet Baby set. Wonderful Words: baby also PTI. The 'Swiss Dot' embossing folder is Cuttlebug,  Baker's twine and button from Michael's.
