Having a great basic set of patterned papers as a go to in your paper stash is so important for a scrapbooker like me.

I love the double-sided designs and the modern colors and designs so I started making envelopes. Then I needed cards for the envelopes, so today’s theme is:

Here are some close ups of the simple cards…basics make card making so easy!  Awesome.
