My sisters and I, whom you can find at www. pinkyfingercrafts.blogspot, spent the weekend making cards for different people. I made one for my brother.
His card took a very long time, because I had no idea what I wanted to do. It finally came together nicely. White card stock with patterned patter by Paper Pizza ephemera paper. The picture is printed on vellum, then black paper from the same pack, and white card stock cut around with decorative scissors, glued to the final background.
