"Wild About Flowers" Retirement

I just love the "Wild About Flowers" stamp set! Again, I'm thinking about classes, and had to make more cards using this set. This card is cased from Pinterest and was created by Lynn from LW Designs.

I used a different embossing folder and die than Lynn did, but it's pretty much the same as she designed it. I love the Tip Top  Taupe with the Blackberry Bliss. A great colour combo.

The following photo is a close up of the front of the card. When I use a background stamp like the "Hardwood" one, I like to use my brayer. I place the cardstock on the stamp and use the brayer on the back of the paper.

The die cut and the sentiment banner are both popped up with dimensionals, as you can see in the side view below.

For the inside of the card, I took a sponge, inked it, and then dabbed it around the outer edge of the background stamp. I used my brayer as I did with the front die cut piece, thus framing the inside.

I forgot to mention that I took the sponge and inked the edges of the die cut on the front as well as the edges on the inside.

Below is everything that I used to create this card.

That's it for this card. Tomorrow I have another cased card using this same stamp set, so be sure to check in to have a look.
