Card for a Friend

I made this card for a friend for Valentines but never got a chance to give it to them so have ended up putting it on Etsy instead! But as I haven't shown it here yet I thought I'd put it up.

 I went for a fairly monochromatic look for this one with a little splash of tan! So layered up a tan background with a piece of black and white patterned paper! Then used my parisian accents border die to cut out the frame using black card stock! Also cut out a Nesties label out of silver mirror board and put it in the middle!

 Stamped my sentiment on the tan card, cut it out using the Parisian Accents again, did a bit of inking using Old Paper Distress Inks, then cut a second on in black and cut it in half to layer behind as a shadow.

Simple stamped sentiment inside!
