Floral Thanks

For this week's CAS - Thank You challenge at The Kraft Journal, I chose to stamp my own background. I started with a piece of Buff Ivory Cover Weight Cardstock. The texture in this cardstock really adds a neat dimension to the finished design. After layering a hexagon mask over the cardstock, I did some ink blending with a sponge dauber. After removing the mask, I stamped flowers, leaves and swirls in various colors of ink. A white gel pen was used to add highlights to the flowers and leaves. A stacked die cut "thanks" was added to the front and topped with Glossy Accents.

The front panel was matted with purple cardstock. Dove Gray Hand Stained Bias Tape was tied around the panel before mounting it to a card base made from more of the Buff Ivory Cover Weight Cardstock. In the pic above you get a sneak peek of how the design was carried to the inside.

Cardstock: The Kraft Outlet (Buff Ivory Cover Weight Cardstock), Cor'dinations (Hydrangea)
Stamps: Simon Says Stamp (Always and Forever clear stamp set) 
Ink: Memento (Bamboo Leaves, New Sprout, Grape Jelly, Lulu Lavender, Sweet Plum) Distress Ink (Antique Linen)
Tools/Embellishments: Dove Gray Hand Stained Bias Tape (The Kraft Outlet), Simon Says Stamp die (Thanks), Studio Calico Huey's Mask (Hexagon Mask), Uniball Signo white gel pen, Glossy Accents
