For my third sample, I attempted to improve upon my first failed attempt. I think I was able to find a relatively good substitute combination that works. Unfortunately, when I purchased the in-color cardstock, I didn't think to purchase the ink. Silly me! It made ink-matching a bit of a challenge. But I think it works alright when you're not too heavy-handed.
Base: white pre-scored card
Cardstock/paper: TLC - misty blue city cafe; SU - baja breeze; DCWV - luxury stack
