Don't forget that specialty paper may be used for borders, accents, backgrounds, and so much more. Look at the designs closely and then visualize what you can create from them. I made the design below using two different pieces of paper from the Nautical Adventure Prints
The border on the bottom was a leftover piece of paper/card stock from another card I designed. It was on the table where I was working when I realized it really looked cute with the sailboat oval for my card above. It changed the layout I had planned. I like this one so much better.
Offsetting the ovals added to the look too. When I set the sentiment centered on the sailboats, the sailboats were pretty much covered up. This way made them "POP".
