Layers Upon Layers

I love how a portion of the Lacey Circle die cut is hidden. To make the background of the flower more than just coloured, I first stamped a script background on the white cardstock with the circle die still in place. With the same colour of ink and the die still in place, I applied the ink to the edges of the white circle, making it light towards the centre. Finally, I stamped the solid flower, still with the die intact. The result is a flawless white border. The various layers of stamping and papers make this card unique.
