Laces, Buttons, Bits and Bobs

That's the challenge theme the lovely Gio has chosen for this month at CRAFTY INDIVIDUALS
 
I decided to downsize and make an ATC (Artist Trading Card).  If you're not familiar with these they are a standard 3 1/2" x 2 1/2" in size and fun to make.   All the stamps are from Crafty Individuals and the inks are Ranger Distress Inks.  The tiny buttons are mother-of-pearl so there is a natural variation in colour.
 
 
After cutting the main card to size I used a scalloped oval, cut using the Cricut Basic Shapes Cartridge, which I had left over from another project at Christmas.  Then I spritzed the main card with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist in Sugar Maple before using CI-116 crackle background stamp and DI Vintage Photo.  I've had the off-cut of lace for a while and luckily it was the perfect colour to complement the card.
 
 
I inked the edges of the oval with DI Vintage Photo and used CI-350 lace stamp and DI Tattered Rose to create a delicate pattern onto which I stuck the cut out head from CI A4 Glossy Image Sheet, Love Letters 1.
