and here is the card that I created based on this template:
I immediately gravitated to this stamp set, as this layout allows me to showcase the stamp from and center. The layout also allows me to use DSP, but not cover it up with the additional layters on the card. The card ended up being simple, but earthly colors - my favorite kind of card.
The base for the card was Sahara Sand Cardstock, and the background DSP was Chocolate Chip. I used a couple of the prints from the 'To The Nines' specialty DSP. I chose the Always Artichoke based DSP prints to best match with the stamped image.
The stamped image is from the Font of You stamp set (currently on the dormant list), and I used Chocolate Chip for the vase, and Always Artichoke for the flowers. The paper edges of the image are distressed and then inked with Always Artichoke ink. You can use the Stampin' Up! distressing tool, or your fingernail by running it along the edge of each side of the paper. I topped the card off with eyelets in all 4 corners and Chocolate Chip grosgrain ribbon.
