I had such fun creating my own background paper and embellishments; especially working with cardboard... I've seen it before on several blogs and I just wanted to try it myself.
These are the supplies I've used:
White, off white and cream cardstock
White embossing powder from Zing
Ink: Versamark, London Fog , Pumice Stone distress ink.
A piece of cardboard from a box which I got at the supermarket; I removed the top layer :)
( It took me a while because all these tiny little pieces stayed behind but it's fun to work with!)
Creatable Flower dies, Spellbinders labes one and Shapeabilitites "Lattice" dies, Cuttlbug Mini Tag dies
Waltzingmouse Vintage Christmas stamps ( sentiment)
Darkroom Door "Floral" background stamp
Some pearls, a button and some burlap twine
Every piece of this card is handmade :)
