This card is made with almost all handmade paper. The base is 5x7 white cardstock. The black mat is
4 3/4 x 6 3/4 black handmade paper. White handmade paper is cut with Papertrey Ink Mat Stack 1 and layered with the black paper and trimed in the shape of the mat stack. The sentiment was stamped in PTI black ink. The same white paper was cut with PTI Large Scallop Border. It is 2 x 4 3/4. A strip of the black paper was cut with the PTI Eyelet Lace border die. A flower was made with the black paper. Those instructions can be found on Dawn McVeys blog My Favorite Things. The little pearl spray is from Dollar Tree, in the wedding supplies.
I think this is perfect for a classy "Over the Hill" type card. Very simple. The picture does not do justice to the pretty paper.
Thanks for looking at my blog!!
