I used regular playing cards to mat my photos. The background paper has an aged yellow color and I was worried that the white of the cards would be too bright and not look good so I took a dark yellow ink and inked the edges, then stamped them with a textured stamp to make them looked aged and crackled like the paper.
I used the same technique on the KI chipboard banner. The black foam letters are by The Paper Studios. I also used a huge bracer to trace and then cut out the red cardstock. I thought the shape of it would go well with the theme, very spade like.
Again I did the aging technique on the journaling circle.
Thanks for taking a peek!
