I chose to use a more vintage color palate of distress ink in browns- the demonstrated used vibrant orange, pink, and yellow. The framework of this card is very versatile and could be done with many color variations to match your recipients' favorites.
The card is embellished with twine and a sentiment stamped tag. The demonstrated used thread, tissue paper, and a sentiment tag. I think both work really well. I realize after working on this card I need to get a stamp-a-ma-jig so I can align wooden stamps better- I actually did it off center twice so just went with it. To create the sentiment I wanted, I took a stamp and masked off the words that didn't apply with tape, inked the stamp, pulled the tape off and stamped the sentiment.
I think I'm going to start investing in more clear mount sentiment stamps to make this process easier. But this worked in a pinch. So Voila-- here is my card using the stencil for embossing.
