The vintage image was found at The Graphic Fairy . This is printed larger than A2 size and cut so the top and bottom border wouldn’t be part of the image, I like how it created a faux border on this one layer card (not counting the butterflies).
Embossed border is created with the Cuttlebug and Organic Flourish mini folder. To avoid the lines most often left by the embossing I roll the folder into the machine and back it out before it reaches the opposite edge. Depending on the cardstock thickness you might still get an imprint but it’s easily covered up with an embossed line which I did on the Scor-Pal.
The butterflies are from Cheery Lynn and attached with Aleene’s tacky glue.
The sentiment is a retired image from Stampin Up which I purchased as a single stamp at a garage sale so I don’t have a set name.
Even though I call this a one layer card I do use only the front of my good paper for Copic coloring and attach it to the full card, this also gives the card a stability.
Paper: Beckett Expressions for image, Georgia Pacific card base, unknown insert paper
Ink: computer, Memento – Tuxedo Black for sentiment
