Today's focal is another of my "pre-made focals - made with alcohol inks, embossing powder, and frame stamp (Your Special Day) and die (Medallion Labels) from JustRite. (Sentiment stamp from K& Co. &)
I decided to start using up some of the paper that I've been getting with my Cardmaking and Papercraft magazine, so chose this stripe as a background paper to coordinate with my focal element.
As you can see, I matted the focal with cream and green die cut pieces (Spellbinders Decorative Labels 27). The border along the bottom was made using an Edgeability die & Insert (Spellbinders) with cream-colored satin ribbon threaded through it.
The inside of the card was easy, too. I used a smaller die-cut green piece for the focal, on which I stamped my sentiment (HOTP "Stamp & Punch) and embossed it in black. A couple strips of the striped paper top and bottom and the inside was done.
