Here's another card from my wax paper resist series. This one starts with a background made from glossy cardstock and wax paper resist. Since I had used the Broken China Distress Ink for the resist pattern, I also used it to lightly ink the edges.
The white mat for the focal & ribbon border was cut with a Spellbinder's die (A2 Fancy Ribbon Threader). I threaded a piece of ribbon through it and wrapped it around to the back of the background cardstock. I tied a knot in another piece of ribbon and glued it in place.
The patterned paper that mats the diamond-shaped focal is one of my pieces of leftover embossed waxed paper that I colored with alcohol ink. I stamped it multiple times with one of the floral stamps from HOTP Artful Collection using StazOn ink. The focal itself also uses a stamp from the Artful Collection. I used an aqua gel pen to draw around the edge of the focal. I also used it with my Dove Blender pen to color in the center of the "banner".
