This card has several steps to it and uses parts of four stamp sets from Tim Holtz and Stampers Anonymous. They are all great sets and can be very versatile. For the background and the lace edging on the card base and sentiment strip, I used Patchwork CMS256 and Patchwork Pieces CMS270.
Collage Paper using Ground Espresso Archival Ink. Then I distressed the collage paper a little by adding some Antique Linen Distress Ink onto the stamped side of the collage paper.
I was thinking it would turn out pretty vibrant which it did and I loved it so I didn't want to completely cover it, but it's just too much for my focal point stamp.
That's where the Collage Paper comes in. I tried to make it feel a little like a pattern to go with the scissors/patchwork/sewing theme going on here.
e lace edged trim piece for the sentiment and to make a lace trim along the sides of the card base.
