I was telling someone the other day about how to use waxed paper in a Cuttlebug folder to iron between glossy cardstock pieces and ink/buff for a great background. In the middle of the explaination I found that I had several pieces of this prepared cardstock so I demonstrated the inking step (to ooohs and aaahs).
I used Shaded Lilac Distress ink.
I didn't have an illustration to match the lilac but found a printed tag that looked good with it. I cut a slit in the top and the bottom and wove a strip of dotted paper through.
I gave the card a thin border of green and mounted it on a lilac card base.
I had a pre-stamped sentiment on glossy cardstock. I used the lilac inkpad to color it to match the background and popped it up on foam tape.
