After I made my initial card, there were a couple of things I'd like to change, to step it up a bit. I also wanted to use the thistles from the "Flowering Field" stamp set for a bit of variety. I stamped the thistles in Basic Black Archival Ink onto a Whisper White Thick Card Stock panel. I also stamped the sentiment from the "Tin of Cards" stamp set in Basic Black Archival Ink.
Using a Blender Pen, I colored the thistles with Wisteria Wonder Ink and the leaves and stems with Old Olive Ink. I added some shading around the thistles with Smoky Slate.
Just like yesterday's card, I added a strip of Old Olive Wildflower Fields DSP to the bottom of the panel and tied a length of Whisper White Baker's Twine around. But this time, I added a large Whisper White Designer Button!
I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Crumb Cake mat--this time cut a bit larger. I pierced the perimeter of the mat using the Updated Essentials Piercing Template and my Piercing Tool. Then I used my scissors to rough up the edges of the Crumb Cake mat. Here's a detail of the card.
Finally, I adhered the Crumb Cake mat to a Crumb Cake card base with Stampin' Dimensionals. I love both cards--one is simple and the other is also simple, but with a little extra detail!
