Remember when I said I would try to get past my new Distress Ink obsession? Well, I lied! You better buckle up because I just got the entire set of Distress Oxide inks and I have not even begun to play with them!
I created an open card front using the Quatrefoil A2 Frame from Cheery Lynn Designs. I used the A2 Retangle Classic die to cut the large opening on the card front and also created a bit of a frame of the same size for the back. I sandwiched the Quatrefoil cut in white in between the card front and the frame backing to hold it in place.
I created a rectangle for the sentiment panel using some Distress Ink paper I made measuring 2-3/4″ x 4 which covers enough of the front to allow you to put a message on the inside of the card without it showing though. The sentiment was added to that with a ribbon banner in between.
My tea roses were made with a mix of the Distress Ink Paper and solid dark purple cardstock for some interest. The layers were cut and the petals were shaped with a foam pad and stylus before assembling. They were attached to the card below the sentiment.
