For this card I stamped and embossed (with white embossing powder), the Flower Dot Pattern stamp on white cardstock. Then I cut it up into 4 rectangles all the same size and covered each one with Ranger Distress Ink. The stamped embossed image resisted the ink and allowed the design to come through. I then adhered all 4 rectangles to a white cardstock piece, creating equal margins. I finished it off with the stamped sentiment banner (directions copied from her blog)

Gorgeous card where she has embossed the white patten and then gone back and using distressing inks colours it in with a foam applicator (ink doesn't stick to the embossing)
