I made this for a college friend of mine. We went to school together in New Orleans, so I got to break open my new Graphic 45 stamp set and EK Success Fleur de Lys border punch to pay tribute to our time in the Who Dat Nation (Saints football reference).
I used homemade sprays for the background. It's hard to see in the photo, but the card is mounted on a black (inner) frame and a thick gold frame (outer). The paper is embossed with a generic damask embossing folder I bought at Hobby Lobby. The stamped image along the bottom is done with black embossing powder, and I used Tim Holtz Distress Inks to grunge things up. The fleur de lys trim has gold pigment ink on it, but it's not easy to see in the photo either.
