It seems like an odd combination - but I love using gray and brown together, especially with a bright pop of metallic red. Here's an idea featuring four dies - Grand Heart 98254, LaRue Heart 98255, Pastry Labels 98107 andPoppystamps Nestled Bird 817.
The Grand Heart and LaRue Heart are cut from prints in the Pixie 6x6 Set. The label is cut from Kraft Cardstock, stamped with Love and Hearts B1423 (hearts are attached to the side of the stamp) in Cranberry ColorBox Pigment Ink and embossed with detail clear powder.
I started with a new Aloe notecard and using Ranger's Brushed Corduroy ink, I stamped Mail Definitions Background (G1839) along the bottom. On a piece of cream cardstock I used Ranger's Bundled Sage ink with the Distress Garden Journal (G1848) stamp - it matches the card color perfectly. I ran a distressor tool around the cream cardstock to rough up the edges. The Drift Flowers image (D1841) was stamped next with the Brushed Corduroy and the flowers were dotted with Pale Lilac Copic marker. The "dotting" as opposed to coloring the flowers ensures no bleeding of the Corduroy ink. I finished the flowers with crystal glitter highlights. There are three new greetings and I picked "just a note to say hello" (B1852) which I stamped onto a scrap of Aloe note with the Corduroy ink. Using brown and white Divine Twine, I tied the greeting around the cream cardstock piece and attached this to the card with foam tape.
This is a quick, simple card using the negative space of a die. Start with a 4 x 5.25 piece of white cardstock. Line up the Script Thanks die (98240) along the bottom and cut. Be sure to save the small inside pieces to complete the letters "a" and "k" on your card. Take the Drift Flowers image, inked in Ranger's Shabby Shutters and stamp several times across the white. Edge this with the Corduroy ink and adhere to the Begonia note. Dot the flowers with Pale Pink and Shadow Pink Copics for a little depth and finish with glitter highlights.
