My guess is you didn't even realize Stampin' Up! sells a stamp that looks like note paper - or more specifically it looks like a school tablet. I know I overlooked it. It is a small background stamp called School Lines and I have had it for a while - just never used it.
I finally inked it up and created a clean and simple card. My goal was: no embellishments. But I just couldn't do it. *sigh* Instead, I added one little button. I know it's gonna cost me extra to mail but it is my own fault.
Tip: To create the look of torn notebook paper, punch holes down the left side with the Crop-a-dile. Use the lines on the paper as a guide. Then just take a pair of Paper Snips and clip twice into the punched hole. I bent my edge a little so it wasn't too perfect.
School Lines is a really fun background stamp with lots of possibilities. Change up the color to match the occasion. The sentiment stamp set, Curly Cute, among others, would work really well with the straight lines. Or use an Alphabet set and create your own sentiment!
