White Square Card Blank.
White Card.
Victorian Velvet Distress Stain.
Aged Mahogany Distress Ink.
Embossing Folder - I used a Cuttlebug Folder.
Chipboard Bird.

Seam Binding.
Cut the background paper, image and white card to size and edge with the aged mahogany distress ink. Matt the image onto the white card.
Colour another piece of white card with the victorian velvet distress stain and emboss it.
Die the seam binding with the aged mahogany distress ink.
Colour the edge of the card blank with the victorian distress stain.
Layer all the elements together with the lace and adhere to the card blank.
Paint the chipboard bird to try and match the birds in the image then adhere it to the card.
