 Thanks for coming by for another look today!  I think you will all really enjoy today's set.  I am beyond thrilled to have another Mark's Finest Papers background stamp.  I think this background will make amazing distressed looking projects.  I whipped up a little easel card for you today.  You can find a tutorial for the Easel card here.  I used the background for the largest part of my easel card and then sponged around the edges.  Then, I stamped the butterfly on the card stock two times and then stamped, colored and trimmed out a third to pop up on the base of my easel card.  For accents, I used some champagne colored rhinestones and some faux washi tape.  When I make my faux washi tape, I use tissue paper and Scor-Tape.  On my tape, I stamped one of the sentiments from Cracked Hello and on the other I stamped the background again.  


Do you ever have a question about how a designer made her card? We now have a place for you to ask about it. You can post your questions and comments in the Blog Hop Chat Forum on MFPSpeedy TV. Not a member, not a problem! It's easy to join!
