Botanical Layers – Thinking of You

Welcome back!  I am home again and trying to catch up…

Playing with the Facebook Colour INKspiration (#142) colors and the Tuesday Morning (#705) sketch for a clean and simple card for the Addicted to CAS (#237) Monochrome scheme.  A little dry embossing for Can You Handle the Pressure (#30) to create the window element from the sketch.

Here is the result:



  • Card Base: (8½” x 5½” scored at 4¼”) Smoky Slate cardstock.
  • Background Panel: (4” x 5¼”) Shimmery White cardstock (now retired but still in my stash).
    • The (2” x 3⅜”) Rectangle die from the On-Line Exclusive Radiating Stitches Dies set was adhered in place with Temporary Tape.
    • Soft Succulent ink was added to a (4¼” x 5½”) Acrylic Window Sheet.  The ink was sprayed with water using the Stampin’ Spritzer.
    • Color was added to the cardstock within the open Rectangle die area by pressing the wet ink onto the paper and patted dry with a Paper Towel.
    • The Temporary Tape was removed and the Rectangle die was turned over and then dry-embossed using the Big Shot Machine and the Big Shot Embossing Mats.
    • The Leaf image from the Botanical Layers stamp set was stamped with Shaded Spruce ink into the framed window.
    • The sentiment, Thinking of you, from the retired Beautiful Thistle stamp set was stamped with Smoky Slate ink.

The completed panel was adhered to the card base.  A small strip of retired Smoky Slate Stitched Ribbon was added under the sentiment.

A clean and simple monochromatic color scheme makes this a perfect card for any occasion and or person.

  1. Loving the use of the die as an impression Jolanda and the beautiful motif in the centre of your frame using those beautiful greens. Thanks for coming to play at Addicted to CAS! Vicky x
