Creative Dies #3

Today's card uses Penny Black Creative Die 51-009 Dots for a textural border beneath the flowers.
To achieve this look I first die cut Dots two times from Neenah Solar White cardstock, trimmed it to fit along the bottom of the card, and colored each trimmed piece using Distress Stains (Fired Brick, Peeled Paint, Wild Honey).  I then glued each piece to one solid piece of white cardstock.  Once dry, I colored the pieces using Distress Paints.  I love how some of the ink went down into the holes just a bit.  The flowers  (Penny Black) were also stamped with Distress Paints.
Thanks for visiting! 
I'm die-ing to show you more cards... :)
