Here's today's card with the double background...

Double  a bit closer...

Double cuIn this close up you see we used 2 ink colors...Bubble Bath &Fresh Freesia.  We inked the entire stamp with Freesia & stamped the cardstock. We washed it, inked up with Bubble Bath & re-stamped over the Freesia. We moved the stamp just slightly to the right a bit to be sure we stamped a separate image over the Freesia. What a lovely stunning background.

Todays design gives us unlimited combinations of color to create just about any combo you need for your background. Oue combo uses two inks that are close together in color, however, you can use colors that are very different for another unique look.

The Shaded Spruce stem is decorated with tiny flowers die cut from Petunia Pop Glimmer Paper.  This die is Stampin'Up!'s brain child--it's a long die with 8 flowers--you can cut all of them at one time! It's wonderful & well worth purchasing for a set of large & a set of small flowers. It's a brilliant way to cut small images.

We've added the sparkle to this card using the Faceted Iridescent gems--they capture a bit of freesia in their sparkle.. just a perfect coordination with the color set we used.

I'll give you step by step directions for today's project below followed by the supply list.
