Security Envelope Paper Backgrounds


These three cards were also made with security envelope paper. The light bulb paper came FREE wrapped around an electric company bill. Reminded me of those Posh Impression pear stamps I had in my stash. All the other stamps are also by Posh Impressions.

  1. Hi there Dolores!
    These are great! Truly a wonderfully creative way to use some 'junk'!
    Hope things are going well for you. I"m missing my scrapping, but family and business duties have taken lots of my time lately. Which is why I'm not in blogland much, either.
    Blessings!
