The background paper I have used on both of these creations is from GCD Studios (Ella Blue) and was purchased at Hobby Lobby. For this first card ... I've kept it pretty simple and adorned the envelope to match the background of my card.
(click on image to enlarge)On my second card, I have made it a little more 'vintage' in style by distressing the edges of the background paper both with a distresser and distress ink by Tim Holtz (vintage photo). I have used Spellbinder Nestabillities classic & scallop ovals to showcase my image. The base card is craft which I have also distressed with ink.
(click on image to enlarge)A peek at the inside of this card shows how I used the same paper and have cut out the scallop oval to position my sentiment within. A brown round tip marker was used for the dots on the inside and a white Signo pen was used for the dots around the scallop oval on the front image. The lace I have used for the front is from Stampin' Up.
