When I started to design this card, I was going for a neutral, not-too-flashy look. I used a couple of fun tools and techniques, so even though it's a simple design, there's a little bit of depth in there.
To get the blue strip, I masked the white card stock using two pieces of copy paper, leaving about 1 3/4" between them. I inked up my brayer with the Pool Party ink pad, and ran it across the 1 3/4" space. I stamped both the image and the greeting in VersaMark ink, and covered them with black embossing powder. (Just remember to run your embossing buddy over the white card stock before you do any embossing- that black powder wants to stick to everything!)
