For my sample I stamped the leaves from Unity’s Gratitude = Joy first in Peeled Paint, then in Shabby Shutter distress ink over a 3 1/2″ square of Penny Lane My Mind’s Eye Paper. The paper was cut apart first in 1/2″ strip, then in offset 1″ pieces, to create the wall look. To add more depth, I sponged around each “brick” with Antique Linen Distress ink.
I taped the bricks to a slightly bigger piece of textured white cardstock. The edges had been sponged with Antique Linen. That was layered on a 1/4″ bigger piece of Chocolate chip cardstock. White Organza ribbon from May Arts was tied around the layers. A Basic Grey Button was tied over the bow with Linen thread. The sentiment was stamped with Walnut Stain Distress ink on Textured White cardstock, cut with Nestabilities tag dies, sponged with Antique Linen and attached with the same Linen thread. The layers were adhered to a 4 3/4″ piece of white textured cardstock with Scor-Tape.
The card base is a 5″ x 10″ piece of Old Olive cardstock folded in half. The leaves were stamped in Peeled Paint all over the edges of the card front. Then the edges were sponged. The card front layers were attached with dimensionals to the card base.
Have a wonderful day! Here is a video for the visual learner:
