Stampin' Up Paradise Palms Retirement Card

Today's card is a clean and simple card using ink blending technique.  The sketch is from this week's CAS Colours and Sketches Challenge
The card front is a panel of Basic White card stock.  I adhered Post-It Note tape to the panel creating a rectangle.  I blended Daffodil Delight ink into the card stock on the open space with a Stampin' Up Blending Brush.  I covered the entire open space.  I next blended Mango Melody ink starting 1/3 of the way down, then blended in Pumpkin Pie ink.  

I carefully removed the Post-It Note tape revealing a ink rectangle on the Basic White.  I stamped the palm tree image from Stampin' Up Paradise Palms Stamp Set with  Mementos Tuxedo Black ink.  I added the sentiment to the side of the trees.

I adhered the Basic White panel to a piece of Mango Melody card stock using liquid adhesive. I adhered the card front to a Basic Black card base.

For the inside, I stamped the sentiment using the black ink on a piece of Basic White cardstock.  I stamped the palm tree in black to create that beautiful silhouette.  I adhered the stamped piece to a panel of Mango Melody card stock.  Finishing off by adhering all the layers to the card base.

A simple elegant card that is very quick to make.
