This card was so ridiculously easy to do, I almost hate to admit it. All you do is take a cardfront of Glossy White cardstock and sponge the following colors of ink on it, starting from the bottom up, blending as you go: (all products by Stampin' Up) Basic Black, Really Rust, More Mustard, Summer Sun, and Apricot Appeal. Then stamp the grass and coneflowers from the new Inspired By Nature stamp set and a saying from Best Yet, my favorite hostess set of all time, ever, in Basic Black ink. Tie a knot of Basic Black narrow Grosgrain around it. Mount on Basic Black card. Done!
A shout out should be inserted here to my friend and fellow demo Michelle W, who borrowed this set from me for exactly one weekend and brought it back to me with such beautful samples that I caught the vision of the set and have loved everything I've made with it so far. Sometimes you just need a little push!
