Second workshop card

Our second workshop card featured the faux peeling wallpaper technique. This one is perfect for the Springtime Vintage DSP, don't you think? The key here is distressing the heck out of the paper. Pauline did a great job once she got over having to wreck the paper, LOL!
I made the card base 4 X 5 1/4 with a Rose Red mat (4 1/4 X 5 1/2) attached to the back of the card. The beauty of this is that I was able to use 2 4X4 pieces of DSP for the wallpaper, so I don't end up with any waste!
This card also features the Four Frames and Hodgepodge Happiness stamp sets.
P.S. I would not recommend using a border punch like I did. Three layers of paper was too much! It's very raggedy.
Happy stamping!

love how you combined the two papers, I would have not thought to combine them but it really works
