THE MOST I CAN DO- CARD

Hi Everyone! This is Holly with a card for you today. The technique is quite simple with striking results. To begin, the base card is masked off to reveal the center band. Distress inks are then sponged on once, then sponged on again to achieve some depth. This card uses scattered straw, sage bundle and vintage photo for the base strip and Jet Black Archival Ink to stamp the flourish and sentiment
The sentiment is then cut with the classic oval die, sponged around the edge and attached to the card base using foam tape.
I hope you like this card and technique enough to give it a try- I think you'll enjoy it.
Thank you for looking today!
