I love making my own scrapbook designer paper - so fun! And also, economical! I really didn't use many supplies on this project: just card-stock and ink...
If you want to create your own patterned paper, remember this tip: stamp your larger elements first, then go back in and "fill in the blanks." I stamped the roses first, and then filled in the spaces between with even smaller blossoms and sprigs. Another tip is: layer! I added a layer of - what is it, exactly? a Moroccan motif? - overtop to unify all of the elements.
The rest of the card was purposely kept super-simple, so that I could show off my baby blossoms designer paper. 100% homemade, baby!
