I had created a background--that I ended up not liking--on cheap photo paper with Distress Oxide ink smooshing. I applied the inks to my non-stick craft mat, spritzed each with water, and dipped my photo paper into the puddles/drops. After each go-around of that, I dried the ink with my heat tool. After I'd covered the panel with as much color as I wanted, I used a wet baby wipe to wipe the surface of the paper to remove the chalky finish & reveal the bold colors.
Rather than trash the background, I used 4 frame dies to cut it apart, thus giving me enough for 4 cards total. Actually 5, since I still have the small center cutout from the smallest frame die. For this card, I used the second-largest die cut frame. I cut another panel of light blue cardstock with the largest of the "Small Cross-stitched Rectangle" dies, and glued the frame centered on that. I die cut the thanks from orange cardstock. (I chose orange because it's the complementary color to blue.) I used Stick It adhesive on the back of the cardstock I die cut my thanks from, then adhered that to my panel. To finish this quick-&-easy card, I adhered my blue panel to a piece of burnt orange cardstock & mounted that to a white card base.
