Background Bits Hostess Set Card

I am not sure why I bought the "Background Bits" Hostess set but once I opened it I saw some fun possibilities with it.  I came up with this simple card.  I'm not sure what occasion it is for but it has a lot of possibilities.  

The base of the card is a folded half-sheet of Whisper White cardstock. On top of that is a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Fresh Fig cardstock. And on top of that is a 3-3/4" x 5" piece of Whisper White card stock.

I took the scalloped circle die and cut my circle from the center of the Fresh Fig layer before it was set in place.  That way I didn't waste any cardstock.

I used the Wild Wasabi marker and what I thought was the Fresh Fig marker to color in the flowers.  I had inadvertently used Berry Burst, but it's still pretty.  And I think the Fresh Fig may have been too dark for the flowers.  Once they were stamped I die cut them with the circle die.  Then I taped that to the scalloped die.

I stamped the lined unreadable image using Fresh Fig ink. I wrapped some gold thread around the Whisper White piece and then I took some more of the gold thread and wrapped it around a scrap piece of cardstock and cut it like you would when you make a pom pom.  I tied those little pieces in place.  I did add a dot of glue so they stayed.  They did like to slip out of the knot.
Next I taped the Whisper White focal piece to the Fresh Fig layer.  I added Dimensionals to the Fresh Fig layer and taped that on the card base and the card was done.  It would make a great Thinking of you, Friendship, Get Well, Sympathy or even a fun Birthday Card.

There are many cards on my blog that can be made in under 20 minutes.  Click here to see them.
