It's hard to tell, but before I embossed the Vintage Cream mat, I stamped it with text in Fine Linen ink (stamped off first to make it lighter) and then sponged the edges to soften it up. Then it was adhered to Limeade Ice and a Pinefeather card base.
The flowers were stamped with New Leaf on the matching cardstock after I cut out the shapes with the Notched Flower dies. Not sure if you can see it, but I also stamped the flowers with text with New Leaf ink. The centers are stamped in Pinefeather ink. I just happened to have some mini brads that closely match Limeade Ice, so I put several in the center of each flower. It adds texture and makes them really pop!
The leaves were cut using a Turning a New Leaf die and I used my bone folder to add a scored line down the middle of each leaf. I bent the ends slightly and then adhered them behind the flowers. Oh, I forgot to mention that each flower was crumpled up. I'm a big fan of texture! :)
My sentiment is also from Funky Florals. I stamped it in Pinefeather Ink on two layers cut with the Jumbo Fishtail Banners dies from My Favorite Things. So versatile, plus the sentiment fit perfectly! I love my finished card and it feels so good to be stamping again. Time to get inky! :)
