Cut a piece of pink cardstock slightly smaller than twice the
size of your envelope one way & slightly smaller the other way (always make the card to fit the envelope!).
Fold in half.
Cut white cardstock slightly smaller than your card.
Tear a piece of scrap paper really ragged (like mountains).
Set on white cardstock about 1/2" down from the top with the tear at the top of the scrap paper. You are going to
direct ink (or use a sponge or dabber) to ink on the white
cardstock above the torn paper (the ragged edge will be stamped about 1/2" in from the edge of the white cardstock
and it will be inked to the top edge.) Repeat on all 4 sides.
Do your lightest color first - in this case I inked tattered rose,
then old paper, then vintage photo. Ink the 2nd color about 1/2 way down the first color and then use the darkest
color to ink the edges of the paper. If your paper curls iron it between 2 pieces of blank paper.
Stick to front of card.
Make a tool for stamping alcohol inks: Take a small
block of wood (1" x 2" or bigger doesn't have to be exact!).
Glue a piece of velcro to the top of it. Cut a small piece of
felt and put it on the velcro. You've created a tool to stamp alcohol inks on anything - and believe me it's addicting!!
Drop 2 drops of both colors of ink on the felt & then stamp
it all over your 3 metal embellishments.
Stick a large, then a small blossom in the top left corner
of the card. Stick the heart on top of the flowers. Stick cherish in the center on an angle. Attach the flower to
the bottom left with a brad.
