Expressions in Ink Thank You Card

Hello, and thank you for visiting my blog! I am participating in Kylie Bertucci's June International Highlights contest, and I would like to ask for your vote, please! If you like my card, I hope you will click on the button below to go to Kylie's blog, and vote for me by clicking on the top right corner of the thumbnail of my card (#5), until you see the heart turn red. Thank you for your support!!


I absolutely love our new Expressions in Ink Suite!! You may know that I really like watercolour and alcohol ink backgrounds. The Designer Series Paper (DSP) in this suite is absolutely stunning, and makes beautiful cards with very little effort.

I started with an 8-1/2" x 5-1/2" card base of Magenta Madness, and scored it at 4-1/4". Then I cut two pieces of DSP--2-1/2" x 5-1/4 (of the floral) and 2" x 5-1/4" (of the dark green), and cut the right side of the floral piece with one of the Scalloped Contours Dies. I adhered both pieces to the card base, layering the left so that it slightly overlapped the right piece. 


A frame was cut with the largest Stitched Rectangles Die from a 4-1/4" x 5-1/2" piece of Evening Evergreen cardstock, and glued over the DSP. The sentiment was stamped in Evening Evergreen on a scrap of Pale Papaya cardstock, die cut with the smallest Stitched So Sweetly Die. 


I then die cut a piece of Gold Foil with one of the Artistic Dies, and adhered it to the DSP. 


The beautiful Magenta Madness butterfly was cut with a Brilliant Wings die, and the body was adhered to the card. Three sequins from the Expressions in Ink Ephemera Pack complete the card.
