Make n' Take - Best Wishes

So this past Wednesday was my last Make n' Take (for now) at Memory Bound.  I had so much fun!!!  From designing the cards (way back in December) right through each weeks make, it was a total blast!!  I loved meeting everyone that came each week and I even learned a couple of names (names are hard for me).  

Each week we did a different technique for our backgrounds and then topped off the cards using A Way With Words Die Cuts (Elizabeth Craft Designs) and other things.  

This weeks card finishes at 6" x 6".  The background panel uses Ranger's Watermark Resist Ink.  We stamped (Tim Holtz image) with the resist ink onto glossy cardstock, inked over it with Distress Inks, buffed it off, and then stamped again using Distress Ink.  The edges of the background panel and white panel are distressed.  The edges of the folded kraft card are inked.  The flower is made from copy paper.  Here we've used the largest flower from the Tim Holtz Tattered Floral die (many other flowers and sizes could be used).  We stacked up 6 flowers, put a brad in the center.  Crumpled the flowers to the center starting with the top flower and working down through all 6 flowers.  You then pull the petals back out as much or as little as you like.  To add just a bit of color we brushed the tips with Distress Ink.  The leaves (Tim Holtz die) were cut from green cardstock.  Best Wishes is cut from white cardstock. 

This is a board I made to show the process for the flower.
