For my card, I stamped and water colored both of the images  ( Light of Life and Sweet Friendship) and used my out of the box Nestie technique to die cut it using a Spellbinders labels 18.  I added an extra cut out lantern on top of the base image for a little dimension.  On the frame, I cut the inside out and attached the quote  (from Spread Light) behind it.

The top background was done with a Cuttlebug distressed stripe embossing folder. I inked the top side of the folder using the Memento inks before I ran it through the Grand Calibur.  On the bottom, I stamped the Honeycomb Background on the dk brown c/s w/ the cocoa ink. It reminded me of chicken wire and I thought that would fit in w/ my rustic looking card. Two screw head brads complete the 4.25 x 5.50 card.

  10. What a brilliant idea to use the distressed stripe embossing folder to create the look of old, worn siding. This is great!
