This is the final card I did and my DH's favorite. I stamped floral on the vintage violet in that color. For the cool caribbean I cut the paper 7-1/2 by 4 inches and then scored at 3-3/4 to make that the opening on the card. The violet is only 1/4 of a sheet of card stock. On the caribbean I stamped print pattern in white, then took my cool caribbean marker I made out of a dried up blender pen and highlighted the bottom of each diamond. I think it makes the diamonds look 3-D.
For the roses I stamped the rose red stamped off once for the first layer, full strength for the second, then cool caribbean full strength for the top layer. For the leaves I stamped vintage violet stamped off twice for the bottom layer and stamped off once for the top layer. I used the slit punch to hold the card closed and tied the ribbon on to give something to pull on.
