I made this card using kraft cardstock for the base. I use kraft cardstock as a base for my cards all the time. It's my favorite, just about everything goes with it. I trimmed about 1/2 in off the front edge with a scallop trimmer. Then using my lace edger from EK Success I trimmed both sides of a solid pink card stock then repeated the pattern on a piece of pink and brown pattern paper. This punch reduces the strip by 1/4 inch per side. I inked all the edges of each paper and the card too, Then added the sentiment with the same ink. Then finished it off by layering two Prima flowers and a rhinestone.
