Designer Diamonds Background

My card today features the background stamp Designer Diamonds.  The center of this stamp has a solid diamond, which I decided to cut open to reveal an image behind it.  I chose Fly Fairy to peek through the opening.  Also on the background I stamped images from Fly Fairy using Palette Burnt Umber ink and used the sentiment as well. Palette Cognac ink matched the golden cardstock I used, so I made that the primary background color, and I even sponged some on the distressed edges of the open flaps.  The image inside is colored with Copic markers.  A golden ribbon and bow wrapped around the card and under the sentiment finished it off.

Here's a closer look.

Pin It!
