Best Gift Card by Jerri Jones

Happy Monday!
Jerri here to share a card I created using one of the April release stamps called BEST GIFT (#SD613).
I do believe that this sentiment is so true.  Sometimes just being there, is the best gift you can give a friend in need.  I wanted something subtle for this card and I think I achieved it.  I LOVE the way this turned out.

Here's how I made the card:  
The background was created with Tim Holtz Distress Stains in Dusty Concord; Spiced Marmalade; Faded Jeans; Barn Door; Brushed Pewter.  The technique used is called the Stained Resist Tutorial and can be found on the Artistic Effects CD.  The stamp used for the background is called PANSY (#SD295).  Once dry, I cut the paper into 3 panels which were then spaced apart and placed on the card front.

The Stamp for the front,  BEST GIFT (#SD613), was stamped in black on white card stock. I used a Spellbinders die to cut and emboss the sentiment. Pop Dots were used to attach it to the card. I finished off the card by putting 3 pearls in the bottom corner to balance out the card.
