Collaging with Affection Collection

The first project for this month's club was this card.  I always try to highlight a technique or two in club projects.  The techniques for this card include collaging with stamps as found in the focal point of this card which was created by collaging 4 different images from the Affection Collection set.  The other technique we used was related to dry embossing, only not with just ordinary, instead we used the new coordination cardstock from the Holiday Catalog and embossed it with the new Lacy Brocade embossing folder and then sanded the surface to get a really intricate and vintage feel!

You know me, I like dimension, but on this card we did something different...reverse dimension by cutting an label framelit shape from the matts and stamping the images in the background.  Framelits are great for that!  The project was finished with some Victoria Lace...which I'm not just about completely out of again, so you know what is on my order;)
