V neck card

This is also called a criss cross card. It's much easier than it looks, and lots of fun to put together. For this card, I stamped the large flower from Embrace Life onto white cardstock, then watercolored it with Groovy Guava ink. The lines got a little faded during the watercoloring, so I went back over them with a Cameo Coral marker to define it better. All the supplies listed below are from Stampin Up!:

Cardstock: Groovy Guava, Whisper White, River Rock, Ginger Blossom designer paper
Ink: Groovy Guava, Cameo Coral, Rust
Stamps: Embrace Life
Other: Gold brads, 1/4" hole punch (tiny Ginger Blossom paper circle under the gold brad on the River Rock flower at the top), Rounded Tab Punch, Boho Blossoms (3 flowers) punch

If I would have had some Guava ribbon, I would have put that around the band that goes around the card. Another item for my growing Stampin Up "to buy" list! LOL
