Hi card making friends and welcome back. I’m back with another favorite Distress Oxide Ink Blend combo for you today with the Simon Says Stamp Fine Foxglove card. As you know I am a fan of ink blending, today’s combo is Spun Sugar, Worn Lipstick and Seedless Preserves. This soft pink color combo lends itself perfectly to summer skies and floral backgrounds.
I have combined it with a new Favorite floral die from Simon called Fine Foxglove. A simple two die set that when combined, creates this beautiful foxglove plant for your cards.

Normally for my ink blended card fronts, I will use a stitched border die, just to add a little background interest to the piece. Today I decided to step it up a bit and use the A2 Thin Frame dies. these dies cut out a frame in the piece, then you cut out another frame from a different color cardstock and inlay it into the channel. I love this technique. it’s elegant and helps to frame your art work beautifully. I used gold matt cardstock for my inlaid frame on today’s card.
How to create the Simon Says Stamp Fine Foxglove Card:
Start with a piece of Hammermill white cardstock 4 x 5-1/4″ and ink blend the colors. Splatter some white acrylic paint across the piece and then let it dry.
Next, use the A2 Thin Frame dies to cut out the frame, then cut a second from from a piece of matt gold cardstock. Glue the colored pieces to a top folding A2 sized white card base. Then, glue in the gold inlay.
Finally, Cut the fox glove stem from green cardstock and set aside.
Creating the flowers:
Start by ink blending another piece of white cardstock with the Seedless Preserves ink.
Next, cut the flower die out a couple times, then use a white gel pen to add the dots.
Then, use the fine tip of the Bearly Art glue to attach the flowers to the stem.
Finally, cut small pieces of foam tape and add to the back of the floral piece and then attach it to the left side of the card.
Add a sentiment and some gold sequins.
