The background for this card was inspired by one of the great videos at Stamp TV - Using Your Scraps which you can see here. It's a great way to use up the strips of paper that I always end up with having cut a six by six sheet to fit onto a card blank and was really easy to do. It's just strips of paper (I cut mine to one inch) stuck onto a piece of card and then trimmed. On the video, a sewing machine is used on the card but as sewing machines and me do not get on (!!) I used a Hero Arts stamp to add some faux stitching instead.
The image I used is from Penny Black die cut with a X-Cut die and I finished the card with a greeting and some Card Candy from Craftwork Cards.
