I thought of my mother when I made this card, she just loves purple! This card has plenty of it!
I started with one of my favorite new stamp sets, Herb Expressions. I inked my Lavender stamp up with Rich Razzleberry and stamped it mulitple times. Each time I inked I stamped it twice to get a darker and lighter image. After I was finished I trimmed the bottom off of my Whisper White cardstock so you would not see the writing. I then inked the stamp one last time again in Rich Razzleberry and placed tape over my lavender image to isolate the sentiment and stamped it above my lavender.
This was then matted on Rich Razzleberry and then Lavender Lace. I clipped more Rich Razzleberry with my Scallop Edge punch and placed this over yet more Lavender Lace that I had run through my Big Shot with the Texturz Backgrounds 1 Flourish Plate. (Hint: Texturizing cardstock with your Big Shot is a super fast and easy way to add some pizazz to an otherwise simple card!) The last step was to add some Whisper White Satin Ribbon and adhere it all to a Whisper White card base! Lovely!
