This "almost monochromatic" card was so quick and easy to make using the new Occasions Mini stamp set, Garden From the Heart on page 9.
After stamping the greeting in the bottom right corner with Basic Black Classic ink, I ran the Sahara Sand cardstock through the Big Shot with one of the patterns from the Texture Plates Kit #4. The impression left on the paper helps make the card look finished.
Next, I stamped the main image on Whisper White cardstock with the Basic Black Classic ink and adhered the cardstock to a slightly larger layer of Basic Black cardstock. A small loop of the Basic Black Satin Ribbon was glued behind this piece in the top left corner. Assemble to finish.
This card looks even better in person when you can really see the texture on the Sahara Sand cardstock. I know this stamp set is one I will be reaching for again and again.
